Ordinary Pakistanis

Pakistan is a fusion of colorful valleys, rugged mountains, hard-working people, old traditions, and rich cultural diversity. Thanks to the media, when one thinks about Pakistan, certain images of Pakistan come to the mind of people living in other countries. The extremes are covered, and we don’t realize that every day, life takes place in Pakistan too.

Despite all the odds, ordinary Pakistanis still get out of their houses every day and enjoy their lives. Children still go to school, boys still play cricket in the evenings. A man is still late for work and a woman is running after her kids. A rickshaw driver still waits for the passenger and a fruit vendor is still busy getting rid of flies from the fruit.

Here are few pictures that will give you a glimpse into the everyday life of ordinary Pakistanis.
