Pakistan: Football, televisions, old timers and the Stock Exchange

A wonderful post by Shirazi on football in Pakistan. From television sales, to old timers. “For Abdul Ghafoor (65-year-old Pakistani), once known as the “Black Pele of Pakistan,” life revolves around football. He has found a renewed vigor ahead of the World Cup finals. Mere mention of football and the mega event in Germany which helps him forget his loss of hearing and nearly impaired vision sparks life in him.”
