When the pilot whale losses its bearings, it beaches itself. Just like these ships, expert pilots/captains steer the ancient and obsolete ships towards coast, and intentionally beaches them. Sometimes this process takes hours till the ship is stabilized on the coast. Than hundred of men, like working ants, and bare hands, scavenge the beached ship, and devours it in 2-3 months time. This is Gadiani beach, home to one of the largest ship breaking yard in Pakistan.
60 km, about 1.25 hrs drive from Karachi past a small town called Hub, exists a beautiful beach near the fishing village Gadiani. Its beautiful coast line has somewhat being destroyed by the ship breaking industry. However due to reduced steel prices, this operation has become expensive and now very few ships are docked there.
