Owais Mughal

Photographer Shigri captured this face in Rawalpindi on March 12, 2010. I chose the photo for these pages because there is a lot of character and untold stories in it. Note the eyes, the cigarette and the rings in fingers among many details of the photo.

  1. Feet From Pakistan says:

    A friend shared a picture of feet of Pakistan, which I wish I could upload, and the following description.

    “The picture shows a worker polishing the floor of Karachi airport arrival lounge entrance, at midnight on 11 March 2010. The chemicals used in the polishing compound are highly corrosive to skin and destroy the sole of your feet in a matter of few hours. The worker is performing this job with absolutely no foot protection. I have often asked such workers to show me the bottom of their feet, only to find that a few days of work leaves them completely sole-less and with deep open wounds. It is disgusting that the largest and the most modern international airport of Pakistan shows such complete lack of concern for the health and safety of the poor contract workers. This is not just inhuman but also criminal. Should not the soul-less Civil Aviation Authority be held responsible for this criminal behaviour?”

    Is there any one in Pakistan willing to file a criminal case against the CAA?
