Balochistan The Glamorous

Living nations do not forget their tragedies but learn lessons to survive on the world map. Artist Abdul Hameed yet of 40 years dared to reconstruct in his oil paintings the glory of Quetta and what it looked liked before 1935. A son of the soil committed to his land, has ventured to show people from all walks of life, the gone-by beauty of Quetta. It will be a rewarding experience for people to look at his works (Ghulam Rasul, Pride of Performance, DG Pakistan National Council of Arts).

Vintage Artifacts Of Pakistan

There is very little memory left of a Pakistan that today almost seems like an alien planet compared to what it has been ever since the mid-1980s. Here, I share with you some interesting photographs that I have managed to gather in the last couple of years of that alien country. A place that was also called Pakistan.

Old Lahore

A rare collection of old Lahore photos, must watch.

That was Also Pakistan
