Aur bhi Gham hain zamanay may ….


I was going through my picture archives when I stumbled upon this one^^. Taken on the Valentine’s day (as the picture suggests itself). Ironically, the long queue of people are not stuck by Cupid’s arrow. It’s the subsidized flour and oil, from utility store, they are after.

What a Contrast ….!

It’s taken in one of those posh localities of Islamabad where people to this side of board had to be queued up for basic food necessities of life and on the other side of shaped board they were enjoying luxurious food … spending thousands with no fear of tomorrow.

Reminds me of this I read couple of years back …

    Very interesting image indeed. I was imagining it without that queue line. The picture (with the greys and the architecture) looks nice, comparable to any European town. Which also means that what Pakistan can look like if we can eliminate some core problems.

    These core problems are eating away the goodness. Otherwise, you are right Pakistan can be a living paradise. Minus the bombings and attacks, obviously :|
