Student Fellow Ikra Javed, a rising junior at Davidson College, recently returned from her trip to Pakistan to report on that country's khawaja siras. Covering this topic took her to Lahore and Rawalpindi, two of Pakistan's largest cities, as well as Islamabad, its capital. The map above, created by Pulitzer Center intern Patrick Reilly using a geo-referencing app, includes photos Ikra took at all three of these locations. One features the same khawaja siras who were interviewed for this project. Others give a sense of day-to-day life—rickshaw rides, ice cream bars, monsoons—in this country of over 180 million people.
