Lahore in winter jal-thal

Brunch mess-up at Lahore Gymkhana this morning

After getting more than its share of bright warm sunlight on Saturday, Lahore received a well-deserved spell of wild rain and ‘aulay’ this Sunday morning. Heavy winter downpour washed the roads, the leaves, the dust and the moods clean while chilly breeze guaranteed an extension in winter spell for a couple of more days.

Happy Winter Rains everyone! :)

Strings in Concert @ Gymkhana

Strumming some Strings

The duo from Strings put on a fantastic show at the Lahore Gymkhana last Saturday!

We , as in the concert goers, had to be real patient throughout the night. Reason being that the band, in keeping with rock-star tradition came on stage about 2 hours after the slated time. Uncle, the violinist who looked like one, kept us from falling asleep. Yes, that is all that can be said in the positive about that act. Next up were Nexus, a local punjabi-pop band that I have heard frequent local universities and colleges. Lets just say they are better as a cover band and they did a commendable job pumping up the crowd; their original song was a unenthusiastic bhangra song praising rotund eyes (ankhian gol gol …). 

 After what seemed like ages the band members themselves graced the stage, as they say, the rest was history!

Here is a (super-duper short) teaser from the concert itself… Enjoy!
