Lahorites go ‘Zoo-ing’ on Eid

Lahore Zoo was one of the most happening places on eid. According to their sales statistics their visitor list was beyond 1 lack 30 thousand within two days of Eid and they expected it to grow on weekends which usually are continous rush hours.

lahore is once again switching to its older modes of entertainment especially on festivals. i wonder if the Cinemas were able to gather that much crowd…!!!!

By the way Many of us dont know that the Lahore Zoo is one of the oldest in Asia?


Multimedia Marketing Network has made an agreement with the Zoological Gardens to get advertisements on entry tickets for the historical Lahore Zoo.

Daily thousands of Pakistani and foreign visitors visit Lahore Zoo and their number reaches in lacks over the weekends, holiday and on special occasions. MMN has revised the design and size of zoo entry tickets. Now these tickets will serve the purpose of hand-to-hand marketing, advertisement and business promotion.

World Performing Arts Festival 2006

Ladies & Gentlemen get ready for the ‘World Performing Arts Festival 2006’ which is starting from November 10 here in Lahore. The preparations for the biggest performing arts festival in Asia of Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop are in the final stages at Alhamra Cultural Complex, Gaddafi Stadium. I am really looking forward for this year’s festival which is expected to attract record number of artists, performers and guests from all around the world.

The organisers of the Festival have added up many attractions this year which include the brand new sitting arrangements. New performances from international artistes and super stars from the neighbouring countries like India, Far East, Central Asian States, UK and USA. By all means, Faizan Peerzada claims, this is going to be the biggest and most memorable festival.

Our best wishes for World Performing Arts Festival 2006 team :).

Eid Rush! Railway passengers face problems

Lahore Railway Station serves more than 100,000 passengers on a daily basis and is the busiest railway station in the country. On occassions like Eid, people head to their home towns for spending Eid holidays that increases this traffic by several-fold.

This time, Pakistan Railways decided to run three special Eid trains with added coaches headed for Faisalabad, Rawalpindi and Narowal in addition to a 100 or so daily departures which still were insufficient to cater to the demand.

Passengers were stranded at the station with congestion on all out-bound trains and with no space to even stand through the journey on trains. People had to head for bus transportation as an alternative, which, many say, is not a good choice because of over-charged fares and bad behavior of conductors.

Eid Mubarik :o)

Wish you all a very Happy Eid :). Have a wonderful day.

They say that Eid is truly meant for children. I hope this year, each one of us will try to bring a smile on faces of some of the little kids around us who are not as fortunate as kids in your family or mine. Share your happiness.

Eid Ronaq Mela!

Finally, Ramadan is ending with a pleasant surprise of an extra Roza; yeah, people in NWFP missed it.

Eid-ul-Fitr is here and the whole city is in a festive mood.

I would also, as our neighbours in Karachi did, like to ask our readers from Lahore to send us pictures and snap shots of Eid in Lahore; the festivities, the celebrations, people, places, choorian, colors anything that you are able to capture and send us at the following address: Your snaps will be published with definite credit to you.

Here, I present some of Lahore’s most famous new Malls illuminated beautifully in colors of Eid. They represent the new face of today’s upscale & modern Lahore.
