Karachi politics:it’s all about town planning. This time, riots over the power supplies. More usually, riots over minibus accidents.
Why is it that I hear so much more about rioting in Karachi than in [other giant cities](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty_most_populous_cities_in_the_world)? Could be just me paying uneven attention, but I get the impression that Karachi is creaking more than most under the strain of its growth.
In any case, it holds some kind of gotham-like fascination – and wouldn’t you want to be mayor of a city like Karachi?
