@karachichaiwalla

There are more pictures taken today than ever before - and the internet allows us to share them with people all over the globe. @karachichaiwalla documents the people of Pakistan in an incredibly touching way. Often shot from above the his stream gives an amazing snapshot of people living in Pakistan through the photographers lens.

because while I was complaining about the burning heat, I was unaware of 6 year old students who sat huddled in a "shrimp cleaning house" inhaling a horrible stench all summer and sitting on their legs for 8 hours everyday to clean prawns for 60 rupees | who or what even gave me the right to complain about even the slightest thing?
