    Interesting blog but there are a two corrections.

    1. The British attacked and took over Karachi in 1839. This happened before the Saddar Bazar was built.

    2. Shah Shuja did not win against the Talpurs. He was without a kingdom between 1809 and 1839 when the British restored him in Afghanistan during the First Anglo-Afghan War (1839-1842).
