Memories of Khanabadosh 2016

“Khana Badosh” is a journey from Lahore through to Karachi, visiting important places in central and South Punjab, Sindh, Tharparkar, and Karachi in the process. The trip is supported by the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) and the Mushtaq Ahmad Gurmani School of Humanities and Social Sciences (MGSHSS) for the promotion of cultural activities. The Government of Sindh has always been extremely generous in facilitating the tour in all ways including logistics, security, and other problems that might come up.

So, we need to ask ourselves if our obsession with commodities and economic growth isn’t reaching a natural limit.
