Naara Sada Controversial Aey!

After Billo, and Punjaban, despite of the rising popularity of his newest Album, ‘Naara Sada Ishq Aey’, ‘Parmeen’, Abrar-ul-Haq’s latest beloved has also become controversial.


There have been criticizing reports in the newspapers about fights and confrontations among people in incidents when one of the party was playing/humming the song which pronounces Parmeen more as Parveen; a very popular female name in our society.

What’s your opinion of using popular names in music humor, especially by singers like Abrar who are widely listened to in Pakistan? Do you think people are over-reacting or is it right to protest against it?

Fresh Catch of the Day…

MrCod_MSARd_Lahore.jpgMr. Cod of UK fame is opening soon in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad simultaneously. In the first phase, they plan on opening three branches in Lahore – one each in DHA, Iqbal Town and Faisal Town (pictured right) with more planned for Gulberg, Wapda Town, Thokar Niaz Baig, Shimla Hill and Badami Bagh later on. The tentative opening date is 1st of April but I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t – they’ve already delayed the opening by few months at least twice! So if you’re a fish ‘n chips fan (like me) then start hoping it opens soon!

Fresh catch of the day? – I highly doubt their claim but am waiting for its opening anxiously nonetheless!

Levi’s Factory Outlet


A Levi’s Factory Outlet recently opened in Lahore on main Peco Road, Township. I haven’t had the chance to go inside yet so can’t say much about the collection and discounts on offer. I hope they aren’t selling the defected stock – just the extra or old-fashion ones.

By the way, aren’t factory outlets supposed to be near the factories?!? :-S

23rd March – Pakistan Resolution Day

March 23,1940: It was today when Lahore welcomed thousands of Indian Muslims gathering at Minto Park, Lahore under the flag of All India Muslim League to witness passing of the Lahore Resolution. The same resolution paved way for establishment of a common ideological base for Pakistan’s creation.


It all happened due to the struggle and leadership of a single man; a man who stood up for a cause and led a nation to achieve the impossible. He is our Great leader; Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

What we need today more than ever is a leader like Jinnah… May God guide the people who have this country’s command in their hands, to make right decisions for the good cause of Pakistan’s 162 million people… Amen!
