In pictures: Ardeshir Cowasjee 1926-2012

One of Pakistan’s oldest and most renowned columnists, Ardeshir Cowasjee, passed away in Karachi last year, at the age of 86. Cowasjee’s weekly columns graced theDawn newspaper from 1988 to 2011.

“Now, old at 85, tired, and disillusioned with a country that just cannot pull itself together in any way and get on with life in this day and age, I have decided to call it a day,” he wrote in a column in December 2011 for Dawn. He went on to write two more columns that year before he finally put his pen to rest.

Here are some photographs, spanning over three decades, looking at the life of Ardehsir Cowasjee.
