Dear Lahore,

I know, it’s been long since you were here.

Since long people from you have been very sarcastic to people from me and have told my baby children that you’ve got no life. Islamabad is a dead city.

Albeit you being the capital of the province I reside in but am not a part of, since I am the “Federal Capital” of Pakistan and although reside in Punjab but am not a part of Punjab.

One of my kids on his way from Gulberg to somewhere on your roads took this picture, and it reminded him of this song.

These kids in the photos are the ones who make their lives by cleaning car screens . And the night time is usually their business’ most revenue-generating moments.


This picture reminded my resident the fact that even in the most busiest of all moments of life, one can still take time out to tell to their loved ones, “I Love You”

Dear Lahore,

Despite what everyone says or believes.

I love you loads.

    This ain’t a lecture about artificial love.

    Chill pill, rant out somewhere else.
