Shahid Raja asked Saba Imtiaz:

Dear Saba,please refer to your book about Karachi. "Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman." —John Berger, 1987 What is your opinion about Karachi?

Saba Imtiaz Interesting, I've never really thought about that before now. Karachi is a young woman in the throes of a nightmare, I suppose.
