Ladies, Never Tasted a Ride on W-11 Bus? Get a Lawn Print!

A Closeup of the W-11
Here arrives the ever awaited, for both lot of Ladies, those who use it and those who get used, the Lawn Season! Its the ho ha time, exhibition after exhibition, designs on designs; the flowers, the various colors and then you witness the total unusual: the innovation, a bus, a Karachi mini bus!

Never had a chance to sit in a bus in Karachi? No problem, we have a LAWN PRINT for you! 

The design goes, a colorful dulhan like decorated bus in the front, a 'W-11' on the back, yes you read it correctly, the famous Karachi bus route W-11 embossed on the back of the dark brown suite.

W-11, a traditional Karachi bus route having about a dozen stops in the city ranges from the famous F.B Area to Kemari with its bride like decorated buses also becoming an international sensation. It’s reaching as far as Australia where the city Melbourne has its own version of Karachi’s bride W-11 running as a tram.

The "Limited Edition” designer clothing costs less; less than the minimum salary set in the government budgets. Even if the difference is Rs. 200, so what? A Rs 5,800 dress is worth it, at least the women would wear it once, once until a week later their Rs 7000 a month kam wali bai comes up with the same dress, a copy of course. So that 'once' makes it worth it, cool! No I am not teasing the high class modern women in our society. The collection is limited to just around 6-8 dresses per design, the WOW Factor! You have a ‘golden fortune’ if you are able to get your hands on one. I understand the drawbacks of a bus ride, the harassment, the dhakkam dhukki, at least you don't have to experience the headache with a lawn print.

I too have some more 'creative' ideas for these ever increasing designers leaving their kitchen chores and jumping into this huge market of the 51%, brilliant minds these 'seasonal professionals' have, I would say. How about a rickshaw, then a peeli taxi, a train, and why leave a PIA jet as many status conscious women would feel it below their status to go for anything to travel on below Emirates. Experience, they should, and lawn helps.

There were more in the collection, there were cycles, yeah bicycles, pity for women, can't own a physical one in Karachi because of the surroundings. A Problem? We have it solved. Can't ride one? Wear it! Look at the advantages of riding the bicycles; not only you can save energy by not using the already scarce electricity to air-dry your hair, you can also control your post marital weight increases. And there comes the Rikshaws, you can expereince the weird feeling of being stared by the Auto Walay Bhai Sab through the rear view mirror. After all it’s all a matter of experience.
In just the same amount an average guy would buy five jeans and wear it for as many months at least. But no, the women do wear it too, even if its once, they do. And what about their wardrobe hunger, the 10x10 cupboard can't be left to rot having empty space and become a victim of complex. When that huge wardrobe is filled, or the collection becomes outdated, or the people they meet have seen them wearing these dresses, then what? Let’s give something to our maid, still left, Selani Welfare Hai Na!

Not only women get affected by this sudden lawn’s tsunami, men do too! Drive on a major road of Karachi and you witness couple of people fighting on the street, you try to investigate the reason of the quarrel, and it’s the same old traffic issue. Move your head slightly, a little up, you see a billboard and there is our ever oye hoe hoe model wrapped in the ‘best collection of lawn one could find ever’! So you now know what distracted our ever nek-parsa men hurling their sedans on the Shara-e-Faisal.

Back to the vehicular clothes, let’s have our Fingers Crossed and wait for the all new upcoming UFO Print; after all it’s all a matter of experience, isn’t it?

Sridevi Killed Sridevi

Fame - Glamour - Popularity: All of these terms are synonymous with the people working in the world of media. While this very fame can bring in tremendous amounts of money and pride, it doesn't guarantee happiness. It doesn't guarantee success.
Sridevi, a household name in most of Indo-Pak homes is no more and many are mourning. Legend that she was, this was expected. They say she died of a cardiac arrest. But is that really it? A little Google will tell you that cardiac arrests occur due to heart rhythms going abnormal. Again, is that really it? Are we getting the whole picture here? No. We are not.

Most Affordable Switzerland in the World - Northern Pakistan

Who isn't fed up with the chaotic lives of our cities? Who doesn't want an escape from the noisy and polluted concrete jungles? I don't think there are any who would reply in affirmative to these questions. Almost all of us want a retreat. Some head to beach, some head to the jungles and some want to vanish in the mountains. But there is a catch:

Do you have the money?

You want to go to the beach? The far-east countries have you covered at a minimal cost. Want a jungle trip? South Africa and other African nations will get you everything in lowest prices. But what about the mountains? The snow peaks, glaciers, valleys and rivers; all of them remind us of Switzerland. But is it even an option for most of us? The answer is probably a 'no' and the reason is again: 'money'. It's sheer expensive!

However we will tell you how you can experience Switzerland for a fraction.

If you're thinking of #Switzerland, it's best to stick to a #budget 'cos it'…

Romanticising A Filthy Souvenir of Partition

'My father gave me this Inverter Wala AC on my wedding...' 'I got this million rupee furniture from my dad..' 'I got all the latest appliances from Daddy Jee on my wedding...' 'Here, you check this car? That's my wedding gift. Thank you Dad!' 
Above are the few lines you will hear from many of the newlywed girls proudly announcing the 'gifts' they got from their parents on their wedding. You will find them telling that to their friends, relatives or their dozens of followers on their Snapchat. Many of the listeners having a parent who cannot afford to compete with these 'standards'.
A papa will now be under pressure to match those 'standards' of the society by hook or by crook. A girl will now begin an agonizing wait while her dad runs around finding an answer of an unending maze. And God forbid the girl isn't lucky to have a father... What happens next is anyone's guess. 
That's the ugly face of the system of Dowry; a …
