This is part III of our photo story series. Here are the links to earlier photo stories: Part I and Part II

(1) Living Dangerously in Rawalpindi

Photo is from Jan 13, 2007 on a Rawalpindi road. A physically challenged person is taking on life’s challenge head-on. The face expression shows enjoyment. In October 2006, we had also shared a very similar photo from Rawalpindi here.

(2) Where there is a wheel there is a way

Photo is from Islamabad. Taken on July 29, 2005. Photographer is Hanif Khattak.

(3) Choking on Crude Oil in Karachi

This Photo is of a turtle which has choked to death after oil spill from a Greek registered oil tanker MV Tasman Spirit off the coast of Karachi. This oil spill killed wide scale marine life around Karachi beaches in August 2003.

(4) Protesting Price Hike in Islamabad.

The cheeks of this little girl say ‘What should I eat’ and ‘Stop Price Hike’.

    “Where there is a wheel there is a way” will probably sound better. No?

    Nice pictures.

    are there any doctors among the readership who can tell us what deformity is represented by the beggars with the atrophied, twisted legs? I’ve never seen it elsewhere. Or is it (I hate to even think it) something that is done to the children deliberately, as some say?

    The record number of persons I have seen on a motorbike in Pakistan is 6. Has anyone a higher record to share?

    The little girl is very cute. Let’s hope she’s not actually going hungry.

    Picture 1: Where there is a will there is a way.
    Picture 2: This is called friendship.
    Picture 4: Very cute protest.

    Wasi hum ne pyar kia tha
    Ulfat ka iqrar kia tha

    Amjad rung ik geet likha tha
    usko apna meet likha tha

    Neher kinarey, peepal chao’n
    Un sey yeh izhar kia tha

    Jana bosa lene do
    dast-e-hina chu lene do

    Talab na paiee, mausam badla
    nadi kinara, gum sum pani
    hum se aaj yeh kehta hai

    Wasi kuoon-kar pyar kia tha
    kyoun is ka iqrar kia tha

    This gentleman could win a talent show or become a stuntman for hollywood.
