Niece views Uncle brought to Hospital

Eight-year-old Sumayya, whose uncle, Imran Ali, was injured in a shootout by unidentified gunmen, looks at him as he is brought to a hospital for treatment in Karachi August 23, 2011. Karachi faced a complete shutdown after the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) announced that a day of mourning would be observed against the ongoing wave of violence that has claimed nearly 100 lives in less than a week, local media reported.

SAIFUL MALOOK, PAKISTAN
From the Author —It’s here at my lovely Saiful  that I met the queen of the mountains, the “Malka Parbat” peak which  reigns over its kingdom at a majestic height of 17,360 ft. Standing in  the east and looking in the transparent waters of Saiful Malook I can  view the majestic mountain in the blue waters of the lake, for the lake itself  is like a mirror. It has the shape of a bowl where water from  surrounding glaciers and peaks falls to form one of the loveliest  wetlands in Pakistan.
Boating facility at the lake is available to but can’t recommend  because the lake is so deep, its depth has not been measured yet. And  there is no emergency equipment or help. So don’t take risk!  There are a few camping sites available though which I would strongly  recommend because its here that beautiful lake meets with all its charm,  grandeur and its magnificence. There are small huts and shops near lake  selling items you may need.

Truck Art - ©Mazaffah Bukhari

Front face decor of a Truck. The miniature of Masjid-e-Nabvi in the middle shows the religious values, the painter and the owner of the truck have.

Truck Painting Art is an indigenous form of art performed in Pakistan. With its all colorful floral patterns, imaginative creatures, depiction of human heroes with creative aspect ratios, calligraphy of poetic verses and driver’s words of wisdom, this form of art is truly a part of Pakistani transport tradition. The symmetry, alignment, and the details are amazing.

PPA organized a photowalk on 6 Nov 10, to capture this very indigenous art being performed at the workshops along Pir Wadahi Road, Rawalpindi.

In a place where 20,000 people a year die from snake bites, this kind of water makes me nervous…God Bless them every one.
