I’m the black sheep of the family, the maverick, the rebel, the outcast because I’ve always challenged the status quo; by living a life that’s spontaneous, uncertain, and at times dangerous. I believe life begins at the end of your comfort zone – this motto has taken me to many highly controlled yet majestic locations around the world, and has given me some of the most awe-inspiring and surreal experiences of my life.
[…] A few weeks ago, on the way back from the editor’s studio, I got mugged at gun point and lost most of my equipment, including my Macbook and cell phone. The thugs rode straight towards a hilly area, known as the Kati Pahari. Half controlled by the Talibans, the rest by various gangs. It’s an area not even the Karachi Police like to visit.
It’s a place from where no one returns, but the view is spectacular.
