Owais Mughal

This photo is credited to famous photographer Fayyaz Ahmed.

According to Fayyaz’s notes, he found this subject at the tomb of Abdullah Shah Ghazi in Clifton, Karachi. When he asked for the photo permission, the subject replied:

“Whatever you wish”.

I saw this photo for the first time a few days ago but I keep coming back to it again and again. There is something about this guy’s eyes.

    Well, well, what do you know. I just tried in Google and got a hit. Her name is Sharbat Gual. Here is a link to the wikipedia article with her picture.


    Take a look and compare.

    I tried to track this picture on Flikr. The person name is Khurshid Alam.
    Mera Pakistan, I believe this person’s eyes are breathcatching and I don’t see any signs of hypocricy, which one may find on the picture on the right.
    Thank you Owais Mughal for your idea.
