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.

I love this! One of my favorite types of photography are portraits. This man's eyes tell a lot. I am going to try to do the same as well! MORE PEOPLE PICS!!!! :)

"Hafiz" means he memorized the whole Quran?! Wow.
And I never knew that till now.

I'm impressed. This is a beautiful portrait. I'm also impressed that this man has memorized the Quran. That's quite an achievement.

Hafiz-sahab ki aankhen bahut kuchh kehti hain. Aapne inki badi lajawaab potrait banaayi hai.

I just learnt something new here from you ~ that "Hafiz" means he has memorized the Quran.

Am I right that "Sahib" means Sir or Mr.?

I forgot to mention that it would be lovely to learn more about the people living in Lahore. That includes the culture, way of life and interests. Look forward to learning more about Lahore and its residents from your blog and photos!
