“Whether it was witnessing colours of Holi at the many mandirs in Tharparkar, or listening to hymns at the Sunday mass at Saint Anthony’s church in Lahore, to or joining in on the festivities of Chowmos – a Kalash festival – I have been able to see, capture and celebrate diversity. By interacting with the communities (I prefer not to call them minorities), I have learnt more about my country and religion than I have from any other experience.” ~ Mobeen Ansari (Photojournalist and Author of White in the Flag)
