By Malaika Tahir | 1 Jul, 2017

A father, your biggest supporter and your biggest critic. He never shies away from stating what’s exactly on his mind. His advice is what brings order into your life and you love the way he lives his life by his own rules.

Here are a few things that make your dad a typical Pakistani father:


1. He’s addicted to news channels

Something our Abus can spend hours and hours doing without a single complain.

5. “Sirf zarurat ki cheezain rakhna” – his advice for luggage, every single time
