animal farmI am sorry to be carrying on about this but I can’t help it. I needed to tell the world that a life-sized giraffe (actually larger than that) has now joined our friend the falcon at the Gharibabad intersection in Karachi. I nearly had an accident as I braked to a halt when I came face-to-face with the giraffe on the way home today. What is this obsession with animals by this town nazim – the reason for my assumption that it is the town nazim who is reponsible for this animal farm is because no other part of the city has been infested by these fake animals. Anyone know anything about this?  If they had been put up in various public parks along with the plants and flowers, swings, slides and merry-go-rounds it would make sense, but on traffic islands? Come on guys!

    No I haven’t Mansoor. How could I have missed it? Must check it out next time I am on SF. Thanks for pointing this out. If they are as awful as the ones I have seen, they would have stuck out like sore thumbs.

    When ordinary people are the ‘children’ of a benevolent ruler, then turning the city into a children’s playground is hardly inappropriate.
