Shrine culture is very important part of culture of South Asia, Pakistan. These features clearly highlights the traditions and norms of my society. I was in search of those characters of my region that everyone else would be familiar with. So I picked up my Malang because mostly people visit Durbar(shrine) to pay homage to holy Saints to accommodate their wishes and to strengthen their faith. These figures have vibrancy inside as well as outside of their personality without having any kind of worldly lust just for the sake of peace they have separated themselves from the outside world. It is not about the facial expressions only but their arrival with the drum beat all gives the strength to their character, all these things are symbol of Malang which has a very strong impact.
