O Pakistan

O Pakistan, wherever life way take me, you will always be where my story began. You will always be the land where I was born, where I spent a beautiful childhood. You will always be the land that gave me an identity. You will always be where most of our families and many of our friends live. I will always relate to your people, your places, your sights, your sounds and your smells.

For the rest of my life, I promise you this, through my words, and through my pictures, I will pass on all that is good about you. I will tell the stories that need to be told. And for all the things that I wish were better, I will not be quiet, I will raise my voice, in hope that someday things will change and get better. I will pray for you everyday, for your people, for your security and stability.

For whether I am living in you not, you live in me.
