On Walls

Ejaz Haider talks about walls here.

Those walls portray a far off world.

I would talk of different walls here. In the Karachi ( and Lahore and Pindi) of my youth the walls, if present were no more than three feet high.

With the change of seasons and passage of years these walls grew.

And grew.

Was it for self preservation, protection or refuge?

Today these walls are sky high, with barbed wires, cut glass and reinforced with cameras and guards.

To protect against what?
