Standing against time they are!
Keep building them!
For being supportively elegant!
The other look of the other side!
Things standing tall today but those who built them up aren’t around.
From time to time, I share with you the scenic beauty of my country Pakistan on my blog. I also share them on Twitter daily (@hammadrais32). Regardless of what you have heard about Pakistan, the beauty my country holds is one of a kind where nature’s artwork speaks unlike anything you have ever seen before.
From mid of March I think, I’m sharing floral pictures on my blog. These snaps are taken by some really great photographers, who are so kind to share their work with rest of the world.
Today, I’m sharing many of those floral snaps together in this post because my heart is deeply sad. I’m sad because of what happened in Lahore yesterday. Pakistan’s second largest and definitely the most historic one, was rocked up on Easter evening, when a bomb blast took place in a park.
Today 23rd March is celebrated as Pakistan Day in Pakistan. It is a national holiday as we commemorate the passing of Lahore Resolution, an event which took place on March 23, 1940. This resolution was passed in favor of creating a group of independent states for Muslims in north-western and eastern zones within British India.
Oh, just before we go towards those snow filled mountains, here is a great shot of Lahore‘s Food Street, where you can enjoy all Pakistani cuisines. There are two main food streets in Lahore and both of them offer all sorts of local traditional cuisines as well as continental dishes.
And I can assure you, your taste buds will never be the same once you taste Lahori Food.
These 2 pictures are of Fort Road Food Street which is located to adjacent to Badshahi Mosque.
As I mentioned in earlier post of this series (click here to check first part), Zia, a good friend of mine, went on a trip to Lahore and Islamabad in last week of December 2015. Initially, he shared about 21 pictures with me.
But later, he gave me some more stunning pictures with same condition: mark them copyright under his name. That wasn’t so difficult to agree upon, so I spent some time and pasted his name on all the pictures he gave me.
