    The Pakistan we lost somewhere between our egos and Immoralities!

    A post which is not only thought provoking nostalgic but raises the question what went wrong unchecked over the years..... it's a reminder of today's reality check...

    Sind Club, the oldest in Karachi, opened its doors in 1871 as an exclusively European gentlemen's club. After Pakistan gained independence in 1947, the club was opened to Pakistani elites. The club featured a billiards room, tennis court, squash court, walking track, sauna, and even a bakery. Once a year, women were invited to the Sind Club for its annual ball.

    Nightclubs in Karachi -- among them the Playboy, Excelsior, and Oasis -- were a big draw in the 1960s and 1970s, and most of them were much less exclusive than the gentlemen's club at Sind. Dancing and booze kept club-goers entertained. But in 1977, alcohol was banned and all nightclubs were ordered to shut down.
