Sunday Market Visit

Hello  Dear  Friends!

Hope  and pray  that  all  of  you  are  solving  the  puzzles  of  your  beautiful  lives  So  Well !
Puzzles  are  best  exercise  for  our  brain  as  according  to  scientists  while  solving  them  our brain  produce new  neurons.

Problems  that  we  face  until  our  last  breathe  are  puzzles  and  effort  to  solve  them  is  wonderful  resource  to  get  an  active  and  healthy  brain.

Having  everything  in  front  of  your   table  is  Blessing   but  only  then  when  you  worked  hard  to  get  it  there .

I   find  it  very  uninteresting  that  since  beginning   one  would  born  in  a  house  where  he  finds  all that  is  required  for  better  life  and  fells  that  there  is  no  need  to  struggle  for  something  in  life .Life  is  Struggle   for  progress  which   give  meaning  and  purpose  to  our  breathing   process.

When  i  finished  my  school  28  years  ago  there  were  many  rich  and established  families  who  asked  my parents  for  my  marriage  to  their  sons  and  it  was  blessing  that  each  time  my  parents  asked  for  my reply .But  i  said  yes  for  man [Hubby]  who  was  that  time  just  a  clerk in  small  office  yet  respected  and  admired  for  his  many  gentleman  qualities.

After  six  months  of  marriage  he  was  interviewed  and  selected  as  shorthand  instructor  in  govt  commercial  collage.We  both  knew  each  other  by  the  time  and  fall  in  love  in  coming  few  years  .Life  became  more  like  flight  over  the  clouds  and  along  with  our  love  developed  our  understanding  and respect  for  each  other.

We  both  took  decision  to  buy  new  plot  to  make  new  house  as  our  kids  were  not  allowed  to  wander  in  streets[we then did not have playground near by ] with  kids  who's activities and language was  not decent  and felt  need  for  bigger  house where  they  can  play.
In  limited monthly  income  it  was  hard  to  manage  but  we  by  the  grace  of  God  overcame  all  the  hardships  and   be  able  to  build  new  big  house    for  us within some years .  I  thoroughly  enjoyed  all  the  hard times  challenges and  felt  grateful  for  this  ability  to  face   such  difficulties  happily .

I  am  one  who  doesn't  enjoy  sudden  blast  of  pleasure [like lottery] in  life  .I  like  slow  progress  which  bears sweat  drops  of  my  own  hard work    and  makes  me  reach  to  a  desired  spot. That  is  why  i  did  not  accept  the   companionship  who  had  already  a  luxurious  life  because  i  wanted  to  test  my  abilities  for  survival  and  the depth  of  my  Faith  in  my  Creator  and  in  myself.

Dear  friends  today  i  am  sharing  with  you  some  photos  of  Karachi  Sunday  market where  i visited  in  my  recent  visit  to  meet  my  eldest  son  there. The  original  place  of  sunday  market  was  under construction  for  some  alterations   so  market  was  held  another place .
Hope  you  will  enjoy  the  look  of  this.


Market  was  held at  a  little  far  side  of city's main area ,it  was  not  the original  place where  it used to  be held [due  to construction work]


      Colorful  fabrics were  hanging so ladies can be  attract  towards  them immediately .


             I  tried  to  take  photo  where  people  were  less as  it  was  very  crowded 


                         I  stared  at  the  cute brown piggy [i think] how sad eyes he  has!


                                       I  loved  these  adorable  faces  with  lovely  looks!


                         Artificial  jewelry and Bengals were  huge  temptation  for  ladies 


                                   A  quick  blurred  shot  while  walking  fast 


 This  photo is from other shop out  of market just  to  give  you glimpse of  ladies  dresses  here .


                blurred  again but  gives  idea  of  dressing  on  events  here  by  ladies 


 There  was  also  a  bird  market where my  heart  felt  sorry  for  those  lovely  creatures  imprisoned  in  small  cages .How  selfish  we human are to  part  them away  from  their  natural right of  living! i  wish  i  could  set  them  all  free.My  son  told  if will do  so  it would be  beneficent for  their  owners  because  they  will catch them again.


            He  would  be  not  as  disturbed  and  angry  if  it  was  his  own  natural  habitat !


                                                                  Another  victim!!!


                                  An  old  building in  the  way  to  mobile  market.


                                     Ghanta Ghar [means Clock Wall] of  the  city 


               Front  look  of  mobile  market  Karachi  from  where  hubby  bought  mobile  for  himself.


                                               Front  view  of  the  mobile  market .

Hope  you  enjoyed  these  glimpse  of  our  markets  here  in  Karachi  friends!

since  three days  i am again caught  by  flue  and cold  and  was  busy  with  some  relatives  visit .I  will  be  visiting  your  blogs  from  today  evening as  it is almost 12 .30pm[noon]  here and i have to prepare lunch for kids.Hubby has  left  to attend a marriage  ceremony of his friend's son.He will be  back  till evening .

Today it is 13 centigrade cold windy day here.hope  your weather  is getting better and life  is going back on it's track.

  12. The market looks very vibrant and colourful. My grandmother used to love doing puzzles and my daughter likes doing them too. It's good to challenge your mind. My wife and I are learning German and I find that very challenging. Thanks for sharing a personal story with us.
    Have a wonderful week!

    1. Wow that is wonderful Bill !
      mostly in this age here people spend their precious time in gossip instead of being productive or learner of new exciting things that give you pleasure as well as sense of achievement ,
      My son is also learning German now a days as he will go to Germany in October and is intended to do job along with his studies .

  13. What you have said is very wise, baili. Work gives our lives meaning and satisfaction.

    I love to see your pictures and read your cheerful words!

    I like the materials displayed that way in the market - it is so easy to see them. I feel sorry for the birds, too. There are always people, no matter where you go, that think animals' feelings do not matter. But that is false. Bless you for being one of the people who cares.

    Until next time...

  15. I loved reading you life story :-) You were wise in your choice of husband, the two of you grew together and that is wonderful :-)

    Your story about the caged birds reminded me of an Aviary that I visited a few years ago. The cages were big not like the ones you show. The rest of my family were lagging behind so I was on my own looking at a beautiful parrot when a loud noise made me jump out of my skin!

    http://www.cheriesplace.me.uk/blog/index.php/2011/02/12/leeds-castle-the-aviary/

    The reason a started to walk off was because the parrot was distressed and I didn't want to add to that. On this occasion I was wrong, it seemed that the parrot wanted me to stay with it a little longer whilst it recovered from the loud noise...

    1. you are right dear Cherry often birds and animals who brought up as pets don't want to be left alone and i noticed it when my late mother's pets [pair of parrot] used to follow her everywhere she went and climb and sit on her shoulders mostly !

  16. Those fabrics are so beautiful! What gorgeous colours. What a lovely market. I enjoy having a glimpse into your part of the world. The part about the birds did sadden me, though. It is a crime what we do to animals.

  17. A superb post, very interesting to read. Your photos of the market are wonderful but yes, poor birds. Thank you for a look at a different part of the world. It is good to travel through your excellent photography.

  18. I am so happy you visited my blog so that I could come back to visit yours! What an inspiring and wonderful post. You sound like a strong woman with deep convictions and spirit! I loved the pictures of the market as it gives me a glimpse of the other side of the world from me. I would love to see those gorgeous fabrics hanging up close!

  22. I hope that you feel better. It is going to snow again tomorrow. We had snow just on Sunday all day.
    Thanks for sharing pictures of Karachi. My Grandmother used to talk a lot about Karachi, long time ago.
    The colorful dresses are probably Shalwar and Khameez suits.

  23. The story of your marriage and love is so beautiful and heartwarming. I love the way you think about life.
    This market in Karachi is marvelously colourful. (Wonderful dresses!) :-)
    I hope you already feel better. Hugs!

  24. What a fun place to visit. Poor little birds do look unhappy though.

  25. Thank you for sharing these lovely photos. I am like you in that I cannot stand to see any animal in a cage. They really need to be in their own natural habitat. I hope you're feeling better very soon.

  29. Life is such an amazing journey. I love reading about yours. This market looks like such a treat. A fun place to spend time with the family. I would love shopping for the dresses. The colorful prints definitely attract me!

  30. Baili, I read this post on what is celebrated as Valentine's Day, and was very moved by the honesty you shared in telling about the relationship of you and your husband. Material things are not as important as working together and building a life, home and family. You have a wonderful perspective and viewpoints aon what matters most in life. I am so glad that you pisted on our blog so that I could find yours.
    The markets are colorful, especially those fabrics, but the caged birds while beautiful too would have made me sad as well.

    ReplyDelete
  31. And, I do send you well wishes to fell better soon, Baili.

  32. It was very nice to read more about you ...

    A wonderful collection of photographs you've shared, I do like those colourful fabrics that are hanging up, it would certainly draw me in to have a closer look.

    I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well - I wish you a speedy recovery

    All the best Jan

  36. Karachi reminds me very much of Lucknow in north India where I live. Some of the old buildings resemble each other. I also enjoyed the photos of the colourful market. The Pakistani fashions are so beautiful and elegant. Thanks for this glimpse into life in a neighbouring country. Beautiful post.

  39. What a beautiful and colorful market you have access to, and yes I also feel bad for those beautiful birds. Lovely pics.

  40. That market looks like a lot of fun. It must be so much more fun shopping there than in the supermarket where everything is always the same. So much life in the market.

  41. I think I would enjoy walking through that market. Those fabrics are very eye catcjhing

  43. Hi dear, Baili! I had no idea I had fallen so behind in your posts! I enjoyed the tour through the market in Karachi. I know that I would enjoy walking through it for real. I agree with you ~ I get so much satisfaction from the struggling experiences I have had in life. My husband and I worked hard and saved money throughout our lives. Now we have a lovely home, and we are enjoying traveling and visiting our extended families during our retirement. I feel very blessed, but we worked very hard and made sacrifices to build the life we wanted. I never take my blessings for granted. I thank God every day for health, happiness, and the love of family and friends. Wishing you God's blessings, dear Baili!
