Pakistan Cricket Team offering prayers in Dhaka. (February 24, 2014)
This picture reminded me of evenings at the university, where our International Relations professor would lead all the boys/men of the class/batch/department in Maghrib prayer — because our class used to take place at Maghrib. We had this grassy lawn outside and they’d pray exactly like this, while the women prayed in the Girls’ Common Room, or avoid walking and talking around this patch of grass so as not to disturb the prayers.
Dear Boys in Green,
Hope you realize what you’re doing here is more than just cricket. You’re giving a chance to rejoice to a nation that’s too broken, dejected and tired. You’re bringing them out on the streets, but for all the right reasons. You’re giving them good news in times when human lives are cheap commodities and bad news aren’t rare at all.
Tonight I thank you not only for a great game of cricket and incredible entertainment, I thank you for hope.

So easy to feel on top of the world when you haven’t seen it. Humbled by my travels. #istanbul #snowdayreminiscing

And I just got broken, broken into two.
Still I call it magic, when I’m next to you.
