Wheels of History: Jinnah’s Rolls-Royce


A concept…

A belief…

And for some a dream.

It does not take much to connect with one’s roots and values even if you don’t necessarily live amongst your kin. The spirit of your country’s Independence Day is something you cannot escape. Even the ones, constantly engaged in derogatory exchanges surely find this day to be liberating and come together like one, coherent unit.

On August 14, 2015, Pakistan will observe one more year of Freedom, Liberty and Honor! On this special, special day, nothing can be more appropriate then to speak of the man who made it possible for the citizens of this country to experience emancipation. We are of course, speaking of the Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

We all have at one time or another taken a brief look at our past and have found ourselves in awe of this great, great man. His services to this country have found him a place in the golden pages of history, where he resides comfortably and all-humble. However today, we hope to take you on a quick journey where we will take a sneak peak past the leader we all admire and respect. He was a visionary and is known by many to have established an inimitable sense of style. His iconic clad black angora cap, a long black sherwani (tunic), and tight-fitting white churidar has certainly managed to capture the attention of many generations. Today, we extend our discovery into his personalized statement through his choice of transportation.

Coined to be ‘The Best Car in the World’ in the year 1906, the revolutionary six-cylinder silver ghost from the Rolls-Royce Company was certainly a man-made achievement. And who would be more fitting to ride this luxurious vehicle then the man known for his individualistic preferences.

This marvel of that era was under the ownership of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and it certainly added to his quintessential lifestyle. This particular vehicle was imported to the Indian Subcontinent in the year 1924 by the Nawab (State) of the State of Bahawalpur and soon it became a prized possession for Jinnah.

We have yet to uncover other jewels under the possession of this farsighted leader and we can certainly learn more about him and the time we only witness through our history books.

Share with us your discoveries of his life and together we can salute the man who fought to his dying breath to ensure lives of millions across the country!
