Lahoris to Host Biggest 14th Aug Celebrations

lahore%20fort.jpg Thats right folks. Heat has never been hotter than the warmth of Lahoris. Zinda Dil Lahoris will prove it again insha’Allah how patriot they are and will take all their Pakistani Brothers from other cities along in dancing and celebrating the Sixtieth Independence Day.

Lahore Fort takes the opportunity to honour Pakistan with hosting the Biggest Independence Day Ceremony.

It will be held at Hazuri Bagh, Lahore Fort. Chief Minister Pervez Elahi would be the chief guest of the ceremony. The function will include a Flag hoisting ceremony at 9am followed by national songs that would be sung by around 4,000 Schoolchildren from various Lahori schools.

How we still miss Sohail Rana at such occassions – is a separate story. :)

Other programs that are being arranged by Lahore City Government include various sports and poetic competitions, exhibitions and declamation contests. More than the previous years, all city roads would be decorated with flags, banners and colourful steamers. All public buildings would be illuminated on the eve of the Independence Day. Sources of “Daily Times, Lahore” confirm!

Only one gate would be kept open for entrance to the Shahi Qila so that it is easier to monitor the law and order.


Its 9th August. 5 days to go. Start your engines ‘n’ Lets get ready to Rrrrrrumble! :)

    Sixty years of creation

    Sir: This is apropos Shashi Tharoor’s article “India’s democracy at 60” (Daily Times, August 10). While extolling India’s democratic existence, Mr Shashi Tharoor mentioned, “the electoral market place means that no single communal identity can dominate others. Three years ago, India, a country that is 81% Hindu, saw a Roman Catholic political leader (Sonia Gandhi) make way for a Sikh (Manmohan Singh), who was sworn in by a Muslim (President Abdul Kalam).” This is an undeniable truth and all credit to India. Thriving, as one of the world’s largest democracies is reason enough for India to celebrate it’s sixty years with pride and fervour.

    It is sad, however, that Pakistan, on the other hand, does not have much to celebrate about after sixty years. Of course, being one of the most resilient people in the world, we will celebrate nonetheless and hope for the best for our nation. Celebrating sixty years of existence, both countries should condemn the ceremony at Wagah, especially since it is nothing but a moneymaking tactic. Instead, both countries should learn a thing or two from each other and progress harmoniously toward another sixty years.
