The gems at Khajoor Bazaar

During my last visit to Karachi, I wanted to buy some fabric favoured by Balochi women and for that I went to Khajoor Bazaar. While I met some very interesting characters there, I spotted a couple of items that were hilarious and chances are that you will not find them in the bazaars that you regularly visit. 

The first couple of photos are of T shirts with romantic slogans in Urdu and last but definitely not the least, third picture is of the wedding gift that rivals only Bahishti Zevar (apologies to readers outside Pakistan – if I have any – you just wont get the reference). 

Hum do dil
Do dil, ek dosray se duur huay, milnay se majboor huay

Dil diya, bhool huee Saajan

Best wedding gift ever. A rolling pin set that says “Shadi Mubarak”

PS: h/t to Summaiya Jillani for spotting the rolling pin set, I was busy listening to the song a sharbat wala was singing. 

PPS: Picture quality is not good because I took them with my sasta phone.

Clip to Evernote


  • Please tell me what sasta phone you use? Because my rs.16000 nokia n73 can’t capture at this good quality.

  • Where is the khajoor bazaar ?

  • Tooba, it is in Karachi near Lighthouse. I dont know the way but I went in a cab and the cabbie knew the exact location.

  • I want ALL of these.

Got anything to say? Go ahead and leave a comment!
