Tour de Sindh!

Last week I with one of my office colleague Jibran and two representatives from KalSoft Academy went on the tour to interior Sindh. The purpose of the tour was to supervise the Preliminary Test taken by KalSoft Academy after the successful execution of “Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Program” a unique initiative of Government of Sindh IT Department.

Overall the tour was good but the time was not appropriate. This kind of tour should be planned somewhere between October to March when the atmosphere is pleasant. I don’t have word to tell how it feels to be in the area where the temperature is 48 Degree Centigrade.

We started our journey from Karachi to Hyderabad, stayed one night in Hyderabad then went to Mir-Pur-Khas for around 5 Hours and then left for Nawab-Shah. I tell you if you want to take revenge from anyone send him to Nawab Shah in the month of July. There is only one restaurant named “Sakoon” in whole Nawab Shah where you might get some sakoon. After spending one night in Nawab Shah the next day we left for “Sukkur”, this is also one of the hottest place in Sindh. We went for some shopping at 09:00pm in Sukkur but couldn’t continue it for more than 30minutes as the climate there was as hot as it’s here in Karachi at 01:00pm. We had plans to go to Larkana but skipped it in order to meet a pending project deadline at office.

Overall the tour was nice especially the people were really welcoming and cooperative. The land of Sindh is full of beauty, it contains some of the world best fruits specially Mango & Dates.

I drank Thandal twice in this tour and I am a BIG FAN of it, believe me this drink makes you feel “COOL” even when the outside temperature is 48 degrees. Yes; there are few challenges of security, people usually avoid travelling during night time but with very little efforts the land of Sindh can provide some of the best tourism resorts in the world.
