Economically rational?

If you think not having basant is economically rational, excuse me. Few people argued that we should not basant this year and donate everything to EQ cause. You can just go around denying people of a sport (I doubt if we have many). Plus, what they do with their money, is their headache. Everyone had been contributing to EQ cause but a sermon to spend every penny for its sake just pisses you off.

I may not complain about not having real basant this time (atleast, we have some kites flying around), but I’m certainly not for killing culture. For the sake of culture, that is. Or for the sake of killing, might be more precise. Ahan, Antenna on the motorcycles all around, all in an effort to protect themselves from lethal strings. Antenna or no Antenna, if you don’t wear helmet, God save you! Why do they make this killer string in first place. And you have all and sundry flying tiny kites (sometimes called machar) with tandi or metal wire. I live in a traditionally more lahori area than many of my colleagues, and it just sucks during days like these. No electicity during the days, and if there’s any, you’re destined to experience frequent power breakdowns. Did I mention nervous breakdowns for poor people like me who are stranded to wait in exile to answer business emails?

And you have to suffer until 15th. Not just me, but thousands of businesses all around Lahore and surrounding areas. When will we grow up? Don’t use that chemical door and I’m all for basant.

    okay, this royal paanwala is in the “newer” Food street, the old anarkali one. Just when you enter the street, you can’t miss him.
