I reached there after university by auto at around 11 am. We are having monsoon season here so weather is mostly over cast.
At Karachi Fisheries there is fish selling at one side and there is ship making yard on another side. I started my walk from Fish selling spot.
After half an hour of walk and clicking, I finally found the yard and Mr. Shah with his students at the shipyard.
Oh boy, those giant wooden ships were something else. In that yard, around four hundred ships and boats of all types and sizes are being made from the starch.
They are all wooden boats made by skilled and professional craftsmen and works, who are local and live nearby. They work on daily wages. It takes them 6 months to one year to make one boat.
Its total cost can go up from 50 hundred thousand rupees to million.
Despite being made by hands these ships can be compared to any ship of this world. They are mostly for local customers and imported to Dubai, Saudia Arabia and Iran. Government should pay proper attention to this industry.
