Art Festival

This picture was taken at the World Performing Arts festival at the fortress stadium in November, Artists from all over the world participated. Art and Music is highly appreciated by a majority of people in Pakistan, but sadly events like these even with high security are the targets by subversive elements of society who deem art as an evil anti islamic activity. This particular festival had a bombing in its last few days, fortunately no lives were lost but it was enough to discourage people from attending.

Hafiz Sahib

Since I started Lahore Daily I have been showing buildings and sights from lahore but not showcasing people of the city, the main reason is that people are reluctant to be photographed. I will try to show more people from the city in the future, This is Hafiz Sahib, Hafiz being a sort of title/qualification because he has memorized the Quran. Hafiz Sahib is an auto mechanic.

Food Shop

There are numerous shops outside the shrines that have ready made food available so people can buy and distribute it to the poor visiting and spending their days at the shrines. Sort of like the American soup kitchens, 24 hours a day.
