There’s a traffic signal in front of Jinnah hospital at the crossing of Maulana Shuakat Ali Road and Usmani road. It’s either a very “happening” place or I’ve conditioned my self to observe interesting things whenever I stop there. The other day, I noticed an interesting looking thaila which bore a sign saying “Biryani on wheels”. I loved the idea and wanting to share it with the rest of the world (or whoever reads this blog), took my camera (or rather my wife’s camera) out to take a quick snap.
Just as I was about to click, a rickshaw got in front of the sign. I motioned the rickshay wala to move to a side if possible and in his innocence, he sat up front and made a seriously cute pose. After I had taken the picture, he asked me if I could show it to him. Unfortunately, the signal went green and I had to go. But dear rickshay walay stylo bhai , I am posting this picture here in the hopes that it gets viral and you can see it someday.
I was walking through my department library today and some old thickly bound volumes caught my eyes. They turned out to be archives of the official journal of the University of Cambridge dating back to the late 19th century. I picked up the 1905-06 journal and look who I found there!
(you can take a look at where he lived in Cambridge here)
