Common Activities at Parks

Assalamo Alaikom.

Every person visit parks for different purpose and with a range of different people, there is a quite number of different activities that people are involved at parks. In Pakistan, families visit parks for recreation while most of the young teenagers visit parks for date. There are also a few, like drivers, who spend their free time in parks. There are a few students who visit parks for studying in quite environment but most of the students go there for bunking the college. I visited Fatima Jinnah Park (Sialkot) on Tuesday, 27th September, 2011. There, I took the pictures of different people involved in different activities. I would like to share those pictures with you.

Couples and dates:

This park is also famous for dates. Most of them are teenagers, unlike this couple, bunking from colleges. There are many couples under trees, along the boundary wall, and also behind the bushes.

And now, the team is now leaving for their next picture.

Some villagers also come with their animals:

Workers at the Park:

Children who do not have anything to do.

Their hands are still waiting to hold the pen.

Unaltered beauties.

I have not worked on the pictures yet. So, they are truly unaltered.

270920111455

270920111456

270920111457

270920111458

270920111459

 

The fate do not writes his life but he is writing his destiny.

270920111460

He is not the only one, among the family, who works.

270920111461

But he earns more than his elder brother (who works at canteen in this park).

270920111462

He takes only Rs. 15/- to polish a pair. It is almost 6th part of one dollar.

270920111463

In daily routine he gets 150-200 rupees, almost. On Sundays, he earn 400-500 rupees.

He, alone, is giving his family, almost, five thousand rupees per month.

 

And here comes my cousin and me:

270920111464

With our driver, Sadiq.

A room of a servant at the park:

It’s very easy to open this lock. See if you don’t believe:

Planning to leave:

270920111470

270920111472

270920111471

 

But there is something else.

The School Trip:

270920111473

Fauji Foundation.

270920111474

There was very cute face behind the smiling girl and the boy.

270920111475

I think, the first class has ended and the next is starting.

270920111476

A long gap.

270920111477

Children wanted their pictures to be taken.

270920111478

But still with a little fear of teacher.

270920111479

“Take my picture”, “Take our picture”, I can hear those screams right now.

270920111480

Higher Grade/Class.

270920111481

When the students called me uncle, I remembered we also used to do same thing.

270920111482

‘Get aside! I do not want you in my picture’. Isn’t it what she was thinking while pushing the next girl?

270920111483

The teacher is also behind the students but still students are asking for pictures.

270920111484

The teacher is commanding them, again and again, to remain in the line.

270920111485

Now, the teacher is also standing for a picture on my request.

270920111486

Can you see that he is calling the students again and again?

 

At the top of the artificial hills:

270920111487

Group photos.

270920111488

And a beautiful view of park (from one side).

270920111489

 

And now moving back.

270920111490

Again the same kids.

270920111491

 

People also spend their free time in parks, under shade:

270920111492

 

Without engine so that I may not flee. Open-mouthed smile

270920111493

 

What should I call it now?

Entrance? Or Exit?

270920111494

Fatima Jinnah Park

270920111495

Formerly known as Sialkot Garrison Park.

  1. Assalam and thank you to share all these merry moments with us! I appreciate all as they are originals. Hope to take some fresh air from this Fatima Jinnah Park very soon.

    • wa alaikom assalam. I couldn’t decide for a long while, that whether I should share these pictures or not, due to the fear of NO COMMENT. But thank you very much. Your comments tell me that AT LEAST someone is reading this weblog. haha 😀 The second thing that do not let me post a lot of pictures I have that nowadays, I am visiting a lot of places and taking a lot of pictures but I do not have time to work on them. When I am at home, I do not touch such a work because I have other important things to do and when I decide to work on it, I take off my hands after viewing the quantity of pictures. 😛 But I hope that I’ll be posting every week.

What do you say about it?
