Saqib Soomro’s love for maintaining the inherited items over a century old

Mr. Saqib Soomro’s family history:

Mr. Saqib Soomro comes and hails from a family which had a rich long past. When you unravel his family pedigree, one comes across such rich traditional background with attachments that is unforeseen before. His roots are dwelled straight to the Mughals, to the Suris and many more old age rulers. For instance when we looked up in his drawing room we came across things which were dated over a century old, but they are kept preserved as they are bought like a few weeks back. Crisp, clean and still useable items which no one would believe that are over a century old.

Mr. Saqib Soomro and his prized century old possessions:

When we entered in to the lobby of Mr. Saqib Soomro’s grand house, we came across a thing that was delicately placed on the side of his room. When we asked Mr. Saqib Soomro that what it is, he smiled, looked at us, and said that it’s a bag which Bahadur Shah Zafar, the final Mughal emperor used to carry with him. When he inquired Mr. Saqib Ahmed Soomro, that from where he had hold of this bag, he replied that once he went to Goa in India to meet his business partner Mr. Subramanyam Joshi. Mr. Joshi took him along to the museum of Mughals where when Mr. SaqibSoomro entered he was flabbergasted by the rich history it had to offer. There Mr. SaqibSoomro saw this bag, and when inquired upon from the keeper of this bag, he was told that it was 102 years old and the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar used to carry this bag wherever he went. That intrigued Mr.SaqibSoomro a lot and he bought that bag for a hefty amount of Pakistani ten hundred thousand rupee.

Mr. SaqibSoomro and his century old ornaments:

When we asked Mr. SaqibSoomro to open his closet for us, he smiled, and asked us that why do we want to look into his closet. We replied that we had done some research on him before coming to him, and we had been told that he always got his better half ornaments which were vintage, retro and loved by the people of Greece in the 18th century. By hearing that Mr. SaqibSoomro opened his closet for us. Where we could see the rings that had Babylon language written on them, the necklaces that had the design which dated back to 17th century and some precious century old stones. When we inquired him that why does he keep these collectables like this, he replied us with a smile. That if you have passion about something, no matter how pricy it is you will try to get it.
