Photo by @_zeemee A portrait of a young boy at Hakimon ka Muqbara near Gurdwara Panja Sahab in Hasan Abdal, Punjab, Pakistan. Hakim's Tomb is a 16th-century tomb located in the city of Hasan Abdal, Pakistan, across from the Gurdwara Panja Sahib. The tomb complex also includes the Tomb of Lala Rukh, traditionally attributed to a Mughal princess. The tomb was built for two doctors (Hakims) to the Mughal court, the brothers Hakim Abdul Fateh Gilani Masiuddin, and Hakim Humayun Khwaja Gilani. #everydaypakistan #hasanabdal #everydayeverywhere #portraitphotography
I have always been fascinated by hands and feet. So, whenever I find inches of skin with anything that takes us back to our roots, anything that carries within itself a sense of 'home', be it paayal on someone's feet or henna on hands, I try and document it. It's been long that we've spoken about stories written sparsely over faces; it is time we read harsh ones written within the crevices of one's palms or the cracked lines on one's feet. --- This is Vrinda Vaid ( @mainvrindavaid ) and today I had taken over this space to show you Iftaar as celebrated at Jama Masjid, Delhi, India. I am a Hindustaani Written Word Artist and a documentary enthusiast who documents and archives the everyday. I am also an avid pressed rose collector. This photograph was one that I made today and it says so much about cultural diversification as well as all of it coming and settling within the chaotic colours and making peace with existence.
The hysteria marks a worrying setback for a campaign which had been on the cusp of eradicating what was once a worldwide scourge, but has faltered. Local women pass by a basic health unit that was recently burnt down by a mob accusing the clinic for providing polio vaccines to children that were expired on May 7, 2019 in Mashoo Khel, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.

A woman cools off while drinking sugarcane juice during her ride between Lahore and Gujranwala in a minivan the locals refer to as Toyota. At a mere 100 PKR/- the van meant for 14 overpacked with 22 passengers, is one of the most economical methods of transports for thousands of Pakistanis traveling between various cities all over the country. Should you prefer the luxury of an airconditioned 'Toyota' the fare is an extra 20 PKR/- Pickups occur both at assigned bus terminals and roadside the entire journey with the conductor screaming out the destination city's name as well as having it pasted on the windscreen. Frequent stops inturn allow passengers to purchase road side beverages and snacks; vendors often will run up to the windows of vans that have slowed down or that are momentarily waiting to fill up seats. Keeping cultural norms in mind the conductor will often shuffle passengers around to ensure that women are not seated with men they are not related to or that are between the ages of 13 and 50, sometimes resorting to placing an elder or child as a buffer. While the ride can get sticky and bumpy; at times even chaotic due to the driver- you're bound to get where you need to be. Jot it down to an imperfect mode in a forever developing infrastructure that has become a viable solution for the country's citizens.
