A Trip To Shahdadpur

From big city to a small town!

Living in a big city like Karachi has it’s own pros and cons. One can experience diverse cultures of Pakistan in many corners over here. But on the other hand, the urbanization factor makes you feel like cornered sometimes.

So when a friend of my younger brother invited my family to visit his hometown of Shahdadpur, SindhΒ last year, we decided to experience an escape from the big city for few days.

Unfortunately, I was unable to join my family because trip got finalized up in a hurry and I was unable to secure leaves from work. But I issued an order to family members to bring back snaps for me, which they gratefully did.

So, for this week’s Cityscape/Townscape Photo a Week Challenge by Nancy Merrill, I would like to invite you to join me in exploring the quiet little town of Shahdadpur:

As we are entering the outskirts of the town, you will spot nothing but green trees on both sides of the road.

Along with sugarcane fields.

And if you look at your left, you will meet up some other road travelers too πŸ™‚

A roadside fruit stall offering fresh juicy fruits, right from the nearby farm.

Oh, the peacefulness on the road!

I will not mind driving on a road like this for hours and hours πŸ™‚

Farm animals, such as these buffaloes, are an essential part of almost every home in town.

Cooking is towns like Shahdadpur is mostly done on wood. This big pot is preparing a local cuisine for a big dinner.

And for big dinner parties, one need lots and lots of ingredients. Like these farm fresh veggies.

And now, how about we check out some fields?

These green and red chilies are tempting but I will not try them out πŸ˜€

Young bananas.

Fetching water from a hand operated tube well is one unique experience.

 

This concludes our trip ofΒ Shahdadpur. I’m sure you have enjoyed it from these snaps as much as I did πŸ™‚

    Your story-telling series of countryside show us not only the beauty of the landscape but also how people live in small town. So very interesting. Thank you very much, HR!
