Pakistanis were seen at every nook & corner of the country-celebrating their Independence-regardless of age, caste, class or religion!
It was an over-whelming sight for us as we spotted some young boys selling green and white balloons, with their faces half-painted and screaming out the National Anthem at busy roads in the morning.
Boy, were they excited!
For those who want to educate themselves on 14th August:
