Presenting any culture and society through its characters is a life-changing task for any artist. Character is the name of the inner state that brings about the process. Writers express their creativity through their characters. These characters can be square and simple as well as compllicated. Muhammad Khalid Akhtar through his humorous and satirical style and his characters have very successfully portrayed the Pakistani society especially the civic life, culture and attitudes of the people of Karachi. He is a mirror of Karachi's social life and way of life. His travelogues simply describe the civilization and culture of other cities in Pakistan.The secret of the successful presentation of civilization, culture and society in his novels and travelogues is undoubtedly the art of characterization.
