14th August Celebrations, Lahore, Pakistan


“Whenever 14th August is nearer, I sell the nation’s flag. Not for a living but when it adds to the amount of money I make from my regular job, it becomes like getting a bonus. I believe in earning through labour, not through beseeching. My brother used to work at a newspaper agency before his untimely death and my father used to run a small tea shop. My regular job is transporting piles of notebooks and textbooks through Urdu Bazaar. 14th August is very special to me because it makes me want to work harder and earn more. Moreover I get to see lots and lots of patriotism.” (Lahore, Pakistan)
