Good Day,

Thanx for previous comments on submitted images. This one is also my traveling experience of Shah Yaqeeq.

During this journey, I stayed at this Hut (Home) for a night. (This hut only for those peoples who visiting here to spend their night and days for achieving success from Mausoleums.) Its about Rs. 100 for one night stay.

All night I palyed with Mosquitos, very large Mosqutitos. In the morning when I woke up, hard to explain my face and hands during spending the night. I got many large spoted at my face, hands and all open areas of the body. It gives pain, thats why I unable to do self-portrait. Smile plz don't ask, it hurts....

Only income they have for their family, its really hurtfull feelings when I talking with the owner. Also he said, Rs. 500 / m his income from this hut, its very difficult for me to take care of my family with 3 Childrens, mother and father also live with us. (Right now here I need to tell you that in Pakistan and India all families lives with joint family structure. Mother, Father, Sister and Brothers, and Brother's wife, and childrens all lives together. I believes this is the best features of our society, we are not get out our old ones like Granny, Grand pa, Mother and Father like West do with their old love ones.)

He also told me that he selling chickpeas (One remarkable thing about Pakistani recipes is, Boiled with some salt without the usage of Garlic, for increasing taste, added Onions, Mango Pickle, Lemon Juice and Red Chilli Sauce. The dishes that are prepared are remarkably tasty. One such dish which stole my heart is Methiwale Kabuli Chhole (Chick peas with fenugreek leaves). This curry is prepared both in dry and gravy version. But my suggestion is to prepare semi gravy version. If you taste this once, you would love to try this out again and again.

Comments and suggestions are welcome!

another captive image here from your travels. You've captured a nice reflection in the water, and also have captured the living situation well.

As for the composition, I would make have taken it a bit more to the right, so that the tree is on the left side of the photo, and you can see more of the pond.
