SZABIST organises historical 'Dhoond Karachi' hunt
KARACHI – The students of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) has arranged Dhoond Karachi scavenger hunt.
The hunt included a tour in which youngsters were enveloped in a chase for enigmatic clues and their answers in historical destinations, of the city.
The participants visited different destinations of Karachi, including TDF Ghar, Frere Hall, Mazar-e-Quaid, St. Patrick's Church and Mohatta Palace; each checkpoint destination bearing clues.
The clues were purely based on the history of each destination. Participants were awarded points and rewarded at the end of the tour.
Through various fun-loaded activities and a hunt for answers, Dhoond Karachi hunt delivered information and hence created awareness.
"We strictly believe that complete awareness ensures implementation intuitively. Gaining knowledge about the sacrifice and effort of yesterday will only ensure the action and determination of today," said a member of Let's Connect, Phir Se society.
The tour left the participants awestruck as they realised that they had been blind to Karachi's beauty for decades.
Let's Connect, Phir Se aims to fill the gaping ignorance which the quantum leap to modernisation has created.
The hunt enabled participants and viewers to create experience and empathy with the culture and its past.
