Khussa overdose

(Khussa is the name of this type of South Asian footwear)

This is a photograph captured by my friend Amara Maqbool while she was I out shopping in Islamabad, Pakistan. 

I loved this picture when I saw it on her instagram story and asked her to send it to me so I could share it with you. 


Patriotism levels were high yesterday

Photograph taken on 14th August in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan. 

14th August 1947 is the day Pakistan gained independence from British rule and established itself as a Muslim majority country separate from India. 

The day is celebrated with zeal and zest unlike any other holiday in the year. It is the day we remember the sacrifices our countrymen have made to make this country and celebrate how far we’ve come. 

This picture is a mere snippet of the enthusiasm with which every Pakistani joins in the festivities. People dress up whether they’re going out for a quick shop or to parade the streets singing nationalist songs. 

As you can see, no one misses out on the fun. 

Everyday things we pass by


These vibrant flowers caught my eye as I walked to the Dental Section of Punjab Medical College, Faisalabad and I couldn’t help but admire how perfect they looked. Wild, untamed, and splashing colour and beauty in an otherwise drab Ā corner of the college.

Just another day

Saidpur Village, Islamabad, Pakistan


Saidpur village, Islamabad, Pakistan

These are some pictures I took from a phone while visiting Saidpur Village, a village located in Islamabad (Pakistan’s capital), last weekend.

The village predates Islamabad by centuries. There’s a Hindu shrine located in it that’s over 300 years old according to the locals. That’s more than 4 times Pakistan’s age (70 years this year).

I’ll post more pictures of this gorgeous village in a few days.

Off the beaten road


Off the beaten road, there’s a trail
Unkempt and wild, pulsating with potential
A story untold, take my hand
This is what makes life worth living darling

Balcony view


I’ll just sit here- All majestic like



This is a picture my friend Amara Maqbool took while she was travelling. She shared it with me knowing I would enjoy it and I share it here with the same hopes šŸ™‚

Isn’t it so beautiful how the clouds are so neatly swept to the side as though they were curtains through which you could peak to see another world beyond.

The ruins



There is a road on the route my bus takes that’s lined with buildings that remind me of ruins. These buildings fascinate me so much xD

So Fresh



That’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this picture in my photography album. I wanted to post it to give a slight change to the winter pictures going around. This picture, like most I take, was from a moving vehicle with I think an iPad; though I usually use a phone.
Anyway this picture was taken from the motorway while travelling from Islamabad to Faisalabad, Pakistan.
