Random photos from Pakistan

Going to school can be difficult yet interesting every day routine in Pakistan, picture given above (left) was taken in very cold month of December. The kids on the bus roof must be freezing, but they are still heading for their school(must be Gujrat city). Travelling behind the bus is a common thing over here, just check the "spider man" on the right ;)

Make shift truck powered by a diesel engine that's used to lift concrete up to roof tops on construction sites. Giving a new meaning to the words like bare bone and brute force.


 "Pre historic" hand pump some of the readers might think, but seriously these things were present in every home until 1994. In fact when we came to the village in 1992, our village had a lot of hand pumps like this. Later on donkey pumps invaded the country and dethroned poor "dhichkon dhickon" hand pumps.
The goats on the right are just cute.

"Koloh", or "Kaloh" is a large pan used to cook large loaves. It is used on occasions like weddings when there's a need to cook lots of loaves. The people shown in the image came to our village for a funeral recently. A crew of two arrived the evening before the event to create a ditch and fix their pan up properly. In the night they prepared dough for the loaves. And next day they started "operations" early in the morning, and stopped nead 2 PM a little before the charity lunch ended. A middle aged female also joined them as helper later in the day.


Building an electricity tower is a scene to be seen. I wonder if they train people using Lego, after all the operation is much similar to putting together Lego pieces.


Recently I was travelling on G.T road and saw a Pakistan Army convoy, moving big guns around. The weapons looked extremely graceful.
"Impotence is a state of mind."
Saw this man (right top) some time ago, he's got a wooden leg but still riding a bicycle. It must have been difficult.

Finally, its the end of the day and end of the post. Looks like sun has left writings in the sky before moving out to the other part of the world.
