A Reason To Light Up Lahore’s Canal

Decorations on the canal in Lahore. (Amber Shakil/YJI)

Pakistan celebrated Resolution Day last week with decorations and festivities. Youth Journalism International’s Amber Shakil made these photos from her home city of Lahore.

 The nation marks March 23 as the day a resolution was passed to form the country of Pakistan. 
Decorations were everywhere and these pictures show a sampling especially some of what Shakil found to be the most beautiful, which were from the canal in Lahore.
