Basant in Lahore on 12th March??

I am hearing from reliable resources that Basant is now going to be on 12th March instead of this coming Sunday (5th March). Now if that is true, what made them change the date? Isn’t it already way too HOT in Lahore, specially during daytime?

vaisey I think it would have been much much better if they had kept the ban on Basant, atleast this year when hundreds of thousands of people are still without shelter up in North. Not to mention thousands will be protesting against cartoons controversy just about the same time when ‘we’ will be flying kites. Doesn’t make sense to me.

    i think sad situations should be converted into happy moments, who knows colourful kites may add colours to the life of sufferers.
    May god bless them with bahar in their life too.

    Why not ban all our sports because people up north are homeless, then? Cricket, tennis, hockey? Why not them too? These are forms of entertainment as well, no?

    Let people who to protest, protest and let ‘US’ people who want to fly kites and basically have some fun, let us HAVE FUN, for God’s sake.

    I don’t know what the hype around Basant is all about.

    Darwaish, your post, now that’s what doesn’t make sense to me.
