Do Not Enter!!!

What is the point of setting up public parks and green areas if the public is not allowed entry into such establishments. I can understand restricting entrance on the argument that people will damage the establishment or spread garbage there but that negates the whole purpose of building the park. Let the people use these places of recreation but fine and punish those who do not repect the value of public property. After all, parks should be there for public enjoyment and not just reserved for a visit by some so-called VIPs.

Here, the entrance to the mini-park in front of Lahore Railway Station is sealed with barbed wire and covered with tree branches.

    Yeh woh jaga to nahi hai jahaan charsi sara din sootay lagatay rehtay hain? Inquire further why it is closed. Make a call perhaps, pose as a journalist.

    And who do you expect will ever pay the fine, assuming that somebody does actually get caught for throwing empty super crisp bag or a stub of red& white. If we expand our assumption further and imagine every body promptly paying for the damage done to the environment but would it suffice to keep the govt. parks in shape.
    do you think a person irresponsibly throwing empty shopping bags in the garden carries a 50 or 100 ruppe bill with him.
    and how would u induce him to part with a 50 rupee bill if found guilty.
