The sea view beach in Clifton is a favourite evening spot for many locals in Karachi,Pakistan.
Over the years, Pakistan has been portrayed by the media as the “breeding ground for terrorists”. For Indians, the perception of the masses, as shaped by the political rhetoric, is of Pakistan as the old enemy state owing to the near seven decade long conflict over the the issue of Kashmir and its autonomy. For an Indian crossing the border into Pakistan, the Sea View beach in Karachi is a befitting introduction to the similarity of daily life on the other side. Contrary to popular belief, one is not confronted with extremist views and a hatred towards India. Sea View offers a real encounter with the people, the laughter of the children, the tea vendor, the camel herder and the average Karachi family, all of which come to enjoy the sunset by the sea.
