Journalist Nazeer Udding Siddiqui, 58, poses for a photograph with his 1979 model Vespa scooter in Karachi, Pakistan March 6, 2018. "My father used to work for Khwaja Auto as a manager and they were the only distributers of Vespa scooters. For me, people who own Vespas are very honourable people who still keep this tradition alive," Siddiqui said. AKHTAR SOOMRO/REUTERS
