Truck Art in Pakistan is a brilliant splash of color, calligraphy and humor on the otherwise blank canvas that is the back of a freight vehicle. If there ever was an under-appreciated art form, this is it! (source)

Imagine a black boy videotaping himself talking about how he intends to kill people. Shit will go viral. “That fucking thug!” Imagine a brown boy videotaping himself talking about how he intends to shoot a neighborhood. “Those fucking terrorists!” Now a white boy does it. It’s cool. “He’s just a little alone, doesn’t have too many friends. Bless his heart, wish people would see his golden heart, Martha.”

I Dream of a Day - Pakistan → watch it here

This dream is not what we see when we are asleep,
This deam is what keeps us awake all night.
If we were to stand as one, all our goals would finally be in sight.
Let us keep our differences aside, Let us all finally unite.

In Urdu, we don’t say "I love you”.

We say “Bhaar mein jaa kuthay ki aulad.” which means “You are a part of my soul”

And that’s beautiful.

Zardozi embroidery is found in Iran, India, and Pakistan. Once used to embellish the attire of royalty, it is now associated with bridal wear. It involves hand embroidering beads and gemstones with gold and silver threads into ornate designs.
