Sharifs handover the Siberian tiger

If the reports are to be believe, the Sharifs have handed a Siberian tiger to the NWFP government after the public outcry. The younger Sharif, Sulieman, son of Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif imported the tiger from Canada and was to be kept in its own air-conditioned compound.

It’s time for Lahore’s 8th Critical Mass Event

It’s time for Critical Mass July 2009
We meet at Zakir Tikka intersection on Sarwar Road in the Lahore Cantonment at 6.15pm on Sunday 26 July 2009.

Critical Mass is about having clean cities that provide mobility and accessibility. Critical Mass is about clean transport. Critical Mass is about putting public good over private interest. Critical Mass is about making friends. Critical Mass is about reclaiming public space. Critical Mass is about showing a man on a cycle is the same as a man in a ten lac car. Critical Mass is about democracy.

Critical Mass is not an organization. It is an idea. It is about making a statement. Everyone in Lahore knows how bad the traffic is. Critical Mass Lahore is a step towards making our city clean and taking our streets back.

Critical Mass is an idea. Make it yours.

What do I need to participate in a Critical Mass Event?
All you need is a road-worthy cycle and an sense of fun. Buy, beg, borrow or steal a cycle if you have to, but join the Mass. Come, cycle around Lahore. Reclaim your city, and have more fun than you think!

Where and how else to Critical Mass Events take place?
Critical Mass events are typically held on the last Friday of each month in cities all over the world. For information about Critical Mass Lahore, be at Zakir Tikka at 6:15pm this Sunday 26 July 2009 or visit the Critical Mass Lahore Facebook page ( Important: Be on time!!!

Lahore Bachao Tehreek Press Conference

To discuss the latest initiative of the Punjab government to allow or party allow commercialization of some major streets in the city, Lahore Bachao Tehreek is holding a press conference at the Lahore Press Club today; 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Another matter of concern for long has been the intentions of widening the Canal Road which requires cutting down of thousands of trees.

The press conference will be used to convey the points stressed upon at Lahore Bachao Tehreek’s session on 15th of July. We will update you on the things shared at the press conference afterwards.

Its raining–get your butt outside!

Yes, its true. Crack open a window-roll down the car windows–start frying some pakoras and brewing some chai–because it is raining in Lahore.


Lahore’s burning hot, man!

With temperatures averaging around 42 degree centigrade, Lahore’s experiencing its hottest times of the year. And if sun’s not taunting enough, loadshedding will make you cry for sure! :P

It is really interesting how artists and copy writers pick, from the changing social fabric of a society, ideas for creative writing. The day before yesterday, I saw an advertisement from Servis Shoes titled ‘Loadshedding Sale’ with amazing discounts on a complete range of shoes at their stores.

Maybe loadshedding is not that bad; especially when someone’s talking about shedding the load of sky-high price tags. So, head for it. *toot parro!*
