Independence Day Celebrations

Pakistan’s independence day is observed annually on 14 August, it’s a national holiday in Pakistan, commemorating the day when Pakistan achieved independence and was declared a sovereign nation, following the end of the British Rule in 1947.

Although 14th August has passed but I would still like to share some photos of the celebration as I didn’t get to share before due to my hiatus. Decorating buildings and fireworks is one of the few things that mark starting of independence day celebrations. It’s something that is handed us down from childhood and enjoyed immensely. All these photographs are from only one city, Islamabad. So here we go:

    Islamabad looks gorgeous with all these lights… I love this city, really more than anything. I don’t have any attachment with it, have visited it like 3 4 times but still it is my fantasy city.
