This LUMS graduate is showing a side of Pakistan that is so much better than any foreigner visitor’s take on our country. It’s no secret that Pakistan is constantly looked down upon in various parts of the world. Thanks to the media and certain individuals, positivity in Pakistan’s potential is definitely lacking and has been for a while.
Books like ‘The Sights And Sounds Of Pakistan,’ are so necessary because they show a side of Pakistan that not many get to see in the mainstream media.
I've been working on a project called 'Sights and Sounds of Pakistan'. It's a book with photographs, essays, creative pieces, open letters.. pic.twitter.com/rw0Cf65V0n
