Good Morning Karachi

This is the story of a working-class beautician whose dreams of becoming a model lead to clashes with her mother and her betrothed. Good morning Karachi , which is also known as Rafina after the name of the lead character, is far more upbeat about Karachi’s prospects than the newspaper headlines would have us believe. Sumar tells us why. Edited excerpts from an email interview.
