Pakistan's Karachi in danger of losing old architecture

Pakistan's largest city Karachi is often associated with chaos in the international media, but locally it is known by other taglines -- the heart of Pakistan, mini Pakistan, Quaid's city, city of lights -- and with good reason. This cosmopolitan 15-million strong commercial lifeline of the country, which today is a picture of skyscrapers and slums, Toyotas and donkey carts, Italian cuisine and biryani, also has a rich history, hosting unique and breathtaking orange and rose pink colored buildings from its colonial past. But experts worry that the city's rare structures would soon be lost through not only the ravages of time, but also neglect of its supposed benefactors and greed of land grabbers.
