Tour De Anarkali


Today, my journey began with thick clouds and then dust storm followed me on Sher Pao Bridge.


It rained softly on The Mall.


Fresh lemons …taking a beauty bath :)


Samosay and Pathoray in Anarkali, a raise in sale after heavy shower.


Tea treat of Anarkali.

I came to know that it rained only in some parts of Lahore today in the evening…and i consider myself lucky now that at least i was one of those who walked in the rain today.

    my all weekend laziness was washed away by the rain – i was enjoying the good weather and walking to KFC on Jail road and bringing some food back home when i was hit by the free and heavy showers.

    @BZ: Irada tu tha but i was running short of time. Will go back there …someday, inshallah. I dont think so that its true, it was never forbidden for males, at least not ten years back when i visited Bano Bazar for the very first time.

    ah – atleast a trip of bano bazar and its famous shops will help ladies on this blog ..

    besides i remmember going to the edge of bano bazar once and you can’t really go in there – there are ladies and ladies and ladies i mean bulk of them. it looks quite odd to visit bano bazar and sometimes anarkali too. thats a ladies place :P

    In that sense..Ohhh yeah, that IS a ladies place :D

    Definitely, a post on Bano Bazar will help the ladies for their shopping adventures, and if not, at least some people can cherish old memories.

    I was born and grew up in India, and have only heard about Lahore and places like Anarkali from grandparents and relatives. Your post not only makes me re-live that nostalgia but also makes me feel at home in Lahore. Thanks.
