Islamabad is sort of a sleepy town. Strange as it is also Pakistan’s capital city. Usually, capitals are bustling and chaotic but not Islamabad. While it may lack a nightlife, big bazaars or a massive foodie scene like in Lahore or Karachi, it makes up with stunning landscape and scenery. It is set against Margalla Hills, which is part of the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range. Islamabad is my hometown. Whenever I come back to Pakistan, whether it is for a wedding, visiting relatives or a visa change currently doing that , I always fly into Islamabad first before going anywhere else.

A barbershop in Rajkot. Photographs and Text by Michael Benanav. This week, Michael Benanav shares a collection of portraits from Gujarat, a state in western India. With around 10, cases reported daily, India ranks third in the world in new coronavirus infections , behind the United States and Brazil. Here, philosophies of asceticism live side-by-side with those of raw capitalism. In the city of Ahmedabad, with an estimated population of 8 million, exquisite examples of centuries-old architecture stand near gleaming modern structures and tarp-covered slums.
The state is rightly renowned for its exceptional textile arts, its food and as the last home of the endangered Asiatic lion though there are plans to move some to neighboring Madhya Pradesh. I first went to Gujarat in to work on a project about the nomadic Maldhari tribes that roam the countryside herding cows, buffaloes, camels, goats and sheep. Aside from learning about the struggles that these communities face in a rapidly changing country, I met people proud of their way of life who have a deep connection to their animals.
The Maldhari are famed in Gujarat for the quality of their dairy products, and they know their herds so intimately, I was told, that they can tell from one sip of milk exactly which buffalo or cow it came from. Through many conversations covering a wide range of subjects, the complexities of Indian life and politics and caste and religion slowly came into focus. I also became unexpectedly close to the couple that ran the Ahmedabad-based Maldhari Rural Action Group and members of their family — particularly two journalism professors.
Aside from everything I learned about India that can only be gleaned through time spent with families, I left with lifelong friends. In between projects and assignments that took me to other parts of the country, I continued to return to Gujarat over the years, delving further into Maldhari culture and visiting all corners of the state while updating the Lonely Planet India guidebook.

Philip Reeves. Islamabad’s a pretty quiet place at night. That’s no big surprise in a capital full of forts and road blocks. But that’s not the case at the city’s latest landmark, the Centaurus Mall, where Pakistanis, young and old, flock to a place that feels far removed from the problems of Islamabad. We occasionally get postcards from our international correspondents who report and live in various spots around the world.
NPR’s Philip Reeves is based in Pakistan where violence has killed tens of thousands of people in recent years.
Abstract This dissertation takes distance from scholarship on Pakistan that considers sectarianism to be the exclusive preserve of religious politics. It fails to ask how and why sectarianism has found support among Pakistanis. I claim sectarianism has to be studied not only as politics but also as a historical condition. This condition is prefigured by the political constitution of Muslim subjects in colonial India and their enduring commitment to Islamic Ideology.
I distinguish the sectarian condition from sectarian politics by showing this condition to be a response to such politics, containing its excesses to allow Pakistani Muslims to maintain a minimal commitment to Islamic ideology.

But what exactly might change and what would remain intact? Have you thought about that? Will hi-tech technologies curtail the little joys and pleasures in our everyday life?

He began learning more about digital art to pursue his dream through books and online tutorials and initially approached the work part-time, managing between passion and work about four years ago.
Starting off with his passion-career he worked on all sorts of commercial designing projects —from manual design to magazine covers to website backgrounds to posters. Talking about the recent Sci-Fi artworks that have awed everyone that designer said it was not a planned one.
