American Mosaic: Pakistani Man

American Mosaic: Pakistani Man

One more photo in the American Mosaic series.

Solon was an Athenian statesman, lawmaker and poet who is known for trying to legislate against political, economic, and moral decline in Athens in the early 6th century BC. He is often credited with having laid the foundations for Athenian democracy. Anacharsis on the other hand was an outspoken "barbarian" philosopher originating from Scythia from a region in Northern Black Sea.

The story goes, Anacharsis arrived at the house of Solon and said, "I have traveled here from afar to make you my friend". Solon replied, "It's better to make friends at home". Thereupon the Scythian replied, "Then it is necessary for you, being at home, to make friends with me". Solon laughed and accepted him as his friend.

The gentleman in the photograph surely resembles Bin Laden. This photo reminds me of a guy I had met while in college. He was a sought after network administrator who looked like he was cast as Taliban for a Hollywood movie. He turned out to be a nice and interesting guy. "It's better to make friends at home".
