Adil Najam

I had first thought of making this another ATP photo-quiz but given previous ATP blogposts, it would have been too easy. So, no mystery this time. Just surprise!

Yes, this is Lyari, Karachi. Where identity and pride of identity cannot be separated from football. They may not have much under their roofs, but on top of the roof they fly with pride the emblem of team they identify with. This is an entirely merit-based sense of identity. They identify with the game, with the skills, with the style, and above all with the passion. Hence, the flags you see. And do not see! Ronaldo, in case you are listening: this may be your biggest fan anywhere in the world!

Thanks to Adnan Siddiqi’s blog, from where I picked up these pictures; he got them from Jang Online Urdu Edition.
