    The Pakistani Women’s Conference, Karachi, 1947:

    The lady in the centre in spectacles is the late Begum Shaista Suhrawardy Ikramullah and to her left is the late behum Nasimi Fazlur Rahman.

    Nice photos. Adil, these photos should be archived with The Citizens Archive of Pakistan. Perhaps you have heard of them? It’s a non-profit, non-government organization that is collecting and archiving first person accounts and photographs of the time of the partition. More on them here:

    Great photos. Seems like a simpler more peaceful time. But I do agree with Javed and others. In my humble opinion, the class of 1947 doesn’t have much to brag about. Lack of resources is not an excuse for setting the trends of corruption, divisiveness, suppression, selfishness, greed etc.

    Irfan and Javed. Maybe you are being too hard on your seniors here. The times and resources were tough. There was nothing in Pakistan then and therefore this generation had to worry just about keeping the country afloat. They could not do much more.
