This is the photo of a ‘paan farosh’ at Daman-i-Koh, Islamabad. A few days ago I went there and was quite amused to see this classical getup. In the background a song was playing with the wordings: “hameN tou loot liya hai husn waloN nay …” .

Note the amazing variety of things on display in this paan shop. Despite all the entertainment, the poor guy had to endure the Islamabad’s cold evening due to his kurta-pajama outfit.

    I am very sorry to see that ATP has censored my post which was written as a well wisher of ATP.

    It was this mindset I was referring to precisely.
