Shaniera Akram writes a love letter to Karachi
Shaniera Akram, wife of former Pakistan cricket team captain Wasim Akram, shared a heartfelt note for Karachi praising the resilience and diversity of the metropolis on the video-sharing social networking platform.
Sharing a photograph of herself on Instagram, the philanthropist said: Karachi is a personification of these damaged wings in which we believe and have the faith that it can fly high and conquer all its fears.
“The city of lights, the city of diversity and the city of hearts held so tightly by its people, more than a city it’s home to all who pass through or plant their feet,” Akram wrote.
Admiring the diversity and the pluralism of the city, she said that despite the odds, Karachi is an eagle that still looks into the eye without any fright and although it can fly away, it remains devoted to where it belongs.
“That is why we will never turn our back or give up on our beautiful city and it’s future. We are the change and we are it’s a support system. Together we can heal, build, and grow. Karachi is We, Karachi is Us and Karachi is love!” Akram concluded.
Shaniera is actively involved in working for Karachi and campaigns for beach cleaning and other social issues along with husband Wasim Akram.
