Amidst fancy cards this simple card of a poor father takes the crown

Lahore 7 Novembr 2022: Amidst all the wedding invitation cards we see around, fancy and embellished and which probably cost an arm and leg... this card takes the crown. A security guard gave this card to someone in the building he worked at, to invite them to his son's wedding. This is not an ordinary card - it has the blood and sweat of a job that requires so much resilience & patience, yet pays too little. It has the emotions of a father who can't afford everything but gives away everything he has regardless. And most importantly, it contains the simplicity of a man who wants people to get involved in his son's happiness, despite his limited means. This is so pure.
