I am a gypsy journalist wandering the planet like a gypsy. I love the way gypsies live and they explore the world. I am proud to be a “Gypsy Journalist”. Sometimes I find dead whales on Arabian Sea or partly crocodile in the city like Karachi and sometimes I am writing about historical building of the city of open museums, Karachi . Currently, I am working on my next book “Ashes of Karachi”. I love to wonder around world and bring you new legendary stories and share my observations. Though I am gypsy, but I am attached with a Karachi based English paper. Photo by Shahzad Shah Jilani
