Owais Mughal

This photograph is from a pots and pans vendor in Jodia Bazar Karachi.

Jodia Bazar is a whole sale market where one can buy anything imaginable under the sky. I however, could never imagine that a consumer today has so much choice of sizes available while selecting a ‘pateeli’ (pot). I guess, all the better for food-lovers like us.
Looking at this photo a couplet comes to my mind which goes like this:

katoray pe katora;
beta baap se bhi gora

    I love this. I want this. Words ‘pateeli(a)’ and ‘degki(a) say it all. Nice post.
