“Sometimes one idea, one bold statement, is all it takes to make a garden extra special.” – Karachi : Pleasure Gardens of a Raj City🍃 by Durdana Soomro . This book is talks about gardens from history to this era’s situation. it has three parts. First part talks about the history when karachi known to world and when british people came karachi and than how beautifully they rule over it, totally convert this dusty and hot city to a beautiful green city by making gardens and doing many experiments with plants too because its hard to grow many plants in karachi. than hindu and mughals came and than after partition our horticultural society arranged competitions for gardens to encourage people and how powerful it impacted on people. Second part talks about all the public and private gardens of karachi with their history and the current conditions. not just simply gardens which we especially call gardens but the gardens around famous places too. Third part talks about the pretty home gardens of citizens and some of the other ones along with author ones that amazed me soo much that how creatively they made their gardens and how they treat them with full concentration like their own child. than Fourth and the last part talks about important tips about gardens and plants. This book is also highlighting the fact that many gardens are private and far from public eye. (with every part you’ll get some informations too along with maps and refreshing or eye catching beautiful pictures) The author did her great job that this book will make you fall in love with gardens. but After reading this book it realises you that how unfair we are towards our beautiful city that all of the things are not just for government to do, there is some responsibility for us, like especially don’t throw the trash to make places dirty, keep it clean. grow plants in your home or area. take care of them. and then when they will grow up, you will realise that what you were missing. ‘When you will read this book it’ll introduce you to the Raj City Of Gardens.’
