[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
i used to watch him on the busy streets of Quetta city...

he would play an instrument similar to a Rubab and would play it well...

today, i found out that he does not play it anymore... and he said he misses it.

he has lost hope in people, he said they make promises that they seldom intend to keep... and that breaks his heart...

he is blind... he is sad... he is lonesome....
and he is tired...

Quetta, April 2011
