Living in Lahore

Lahore we know, right.
It is our city, the heart of Pakistan, laorre laorre ai, payan!
Well, then what is Lahore doing in the state of Virginia?

How many of us here knew that? I didn’t. Lahore in Virginia! That’s just cheating, man, cheating I tell ya.

P.S. I don’t even know if it’s a city, a town or just some other name that the Americans came up with.

    well, i guess k this is something like “Second Lahore or Mini Lahore” over there….same as Mini Pakistan or Mini Asia…
    some names or places develop as with the association and presence of certain things related to the original one….

    for instance, Mini Pakistan in America is due to the huge population rate, market, restaurants, centres of Pakistan or Pakistanis….

    Same would be the case with this State of virginia, as might be there several reasons behind this :)

    so, chill LAHORIS…as noone there dare just think of calling or having a Lahore…
    after all, Lahore Lahore Hai….:)
    wats say!!!

    Knew that and the fact that if a letter is mail to Lahore which doesn’t mention Pakistan, it often ends up there and they allocated a sum to redirect those letters to “proper” Lahore.

    If I remember correctly the founder of the town, in trying to finds a name, went through a world map and liked Lahore.

    I knew about it too! And if I’m not wrong it once got featured on VOA Urdu Service’s ‘Khabron Say Aagay’ on Geo TV.

    It’s founder was also a Pakistani :)

    I knew about it already as well. But the URL forwarded by JIYA containing videos, have given me a lot more than I ever knew! And I do appreciate the efforts and I wish he is able to achieve what he’s thriving for!
