Experimental Construction in Lahore

The opening ceremony of Institute for Experimental Construction (IEC) was held in the Beaconhouse National University, Raiwind Road, Lahore on April 29, 2011.  The theme of the event was Mud Housing and Appropriate Technology. Other related topics like Natural Disasters and Slums and Upgrading of Housing Experiments also came under lime light. The demonstration and discussion also included not only the construction but also the technical infra-structure (electricity supply, toilets, water filtration) and more.

Cholistan in Lahore

“It is an island of tranquility only an hour away from home. It surprises me that so few people in Lahore or Kasur know of it. Such a place in India would have been swamped with visitors on weekends,” says Salman Rashid.

Snooker Club

I used to play snooker at Chaudry’s snooker club in H Block DHA. But then my friend got a bit more serious about the game, and bought a cue, with snazzy casing and everything. He found a well-planned, well-maintained snooker club in Shadman market, and we have been relishing the clean, straight tables before the club gets written off to ‘

  • puraana hai, is liyae farikh hai
  • ‘.
    Do you know that you are at unnees (nineteen), and all you have to do is set up a process to take it to and keep it at bees (twenty)? Let’s hope this snooker club is based on a few processes rather than ‘daikhee jayae gee‘.
