The Spirit of Freedom

It's such a nice feeling to see everyone being so patriotic, from the little kids, who put up a small flag on their bicycle, to the fruit selling carts, and the best of cars, decorated with a Pakistani flag.

Buildings decorated with lights. Houses and flats decorated with flags of all sizes.

And then finally at night, as August 13th changes to August 14th, it's gathering time for the Karachittes at Seaview. Hundreds of thousands of people rush to the seaview to celebrate Jashn-e-Azadi.

However, the bikes, and the bike riders, are a total nuisance and they do nothing but create immense noise pollution (as they take the silencers out of their bikes), and the way they drive - wrecklessly.

But overall, the night is filled with josh, excitement and patriotic fervour.
