Owais Mughal

The word traffic relates to any man, animal or machine of any shape and size that can use a road. Such a diverse use is obvious from the photo above which is dated October 23, 2007. A friend of mine recently forwarded it to me. Also note the leisure of three men sitting on top of this camel cart. Ghalib’s sher comes to mind:

dil dhoondta hai phir wohi fursat ke raat din
bethay raheN tassawur-e-janaaN kiyay hoay

    Just 2 years ago i left Hyderabad, But i am sure its not AutoBhan, but really not able to call which road is it.

    The first time I saw it, I thought its Allah Wali Chowrangi of Tariq Road, Karachi. Khan seems to be right. This does not look like Autobhan road, though the camel cart and its load is a true picture of the city.

    It has been only a year since I left Hyderabad and I am pretty sure this is not the autobahn road that I left there.

    I got this photo from a friend who got its clipping from an online newspaper which called in ‘Auto Bhan’ (as autobahn road is usually called in local press) Road Hyderabad. Its been many years that I’ve been personally to Hyderabad so there is no way for me to confirm except to believe the online newspaper where I myself saw the caption of ‘Auto Bhan’
