This is ZAMAN BABA, I found him in F7 Markaz (Jinnah Super Market), Islamabad yesterday in this blazing heat.
My father pointed him out and told me about this “KNIFE SHARPENING TECHNIQUE”. Baba Zaman is from Kohistan & doesn’t have anyplace or home to live and roam around with this machine on his back all day in search of work.
When asked he told me that this isn’t a popular thing anymore and he barely find work now, he earn around 100 to 200 rupees max everyday and that his legs hurt but can’t do anything about it.
Upon questioned about why doesn’t he do something else? He said “Beta paisa ho to koi or kaam kroon..”
(If I had money to invest i’d do it right away)
If anyone in F7 Markaz, Islamabad or nearby can spot BABA ZAMAN, I request you to take a moment and help him a little out or if this reaches to some charitable foundation kindly take a notice. #ShareToAware
