Karachi, a metropolis larger than any other in the country, continues to grow unstoppably defending its identity as the business hub of Pakistan. It is the cultural, economic, generous, educational, and political center of the country.
Karachi, which is known as the City of Lights, now a days have become a problematic city which is surrounded by unplanned infrastructure, wreckages in utility lines, bumpy and inundated roads and poor sewerage condition. These problems have effected the people of Karachi drastically due to which people are more concerned to their physical and mental health.
There was an era when Karachi was known for its sportsmen. The city has produced a lot of famous sports personalities in the field of cricket, hockey, snooker, athletes and other sports. Local club and gymkhana teams contributed so much to raise the level of sportsmanship amongst the players. In the late 18th century, there were few clubs who were providing facilities to their members to play cricket, hockey, badminton and billiard. It is also a fact that due to the modernization of technology when everyone is so much addicted to the usage of smart phones and computer gaming, new generation is so much distant from the field games, which are detrimental to the physical health.
When you talk about Karachi, it is significant to note that the city is demographically expended exponentially in few years without any proper planning from the concerned authorities even to date, we do not have a comprehensive Master Plan. Parks and play grounds are cut down and are intentionally or unintentionally converted into a garbage area. It is a need of the time that someone comes up with the idea to promote and give chance to the young guns of our generation.
