Boatman on the River Ravi

British Library’s online images section has some great images of Lahore. To me,
this one is very very interesting because of many reasons.

This definitely looks something similar to Lahore as described by English poet John Milton in Book X of ‘Paradise Lost’. He mentioned some of the great cities of his time in that book and Lahore being one of them.

I just wonder if Lahore has lost its old spirit in last 50 years or so. It’s not Milton’s Lahore anymore.
Read this and this if you dont know much about John Milton or the book I mentioned.

    Lahore was a great city before 50 years indeed.
