How does every day life in Pakistan look like?

A young Pakistani Pakhtun boy takes care of his (maybe) goats. The weather is cold but he's wearing slippers. Pakhtuns have made a strong place in Punjab due to hard work and selflessness. These folks are only concerned with their work, whereas Punjabi locals usually shy away from small jobs or working for people belonging to low casts.


Redefining transportation, a young Pakhtun boy toes a young girl most probably his sister to the other side of the road. In past they were living in mud huts but now they've built concrete homes on lad they've purchased.


When it comes to selfless hard work, Pathans are no doubt the best. We went to this young man to buy some fire wood for a funeral alms lunch. The wood he had was dry but it was wide cut, not suitable for cooking. So we asked him to chop the logs in half. All alone he chopped 450 kilos of wood in something like one hour.


Early morning in a local fruit market a vendor is washing oranges with a mixture of water and oil, it will make the fruit clean and shiny. On the left you could see the bags of oranges he's bought in open bidding.


That's a hell of a "helping foot", who needs a helping hand then? Two young men are pushing a broken car to a workshop(most probably) in Lahore Pakistan.


Once upon a time, I parked my car in the wrong place and went away for shopping. By the time I returned, the police had already lifted my tiny Suzuki 800 away to a foot path. "Getting carried away" has got different meanings for humans and cars. Had to pay a small fine of line $5 or 500 Pakistani rupees to get the car off the foot path.
