An Account From Lahore

25-02-07_1353.jpgThis weekend I had a chance to visit Lahore for the Basant Festival. The experience it self was great as usual. Although my hands hurt by the cuts right now, still while you are in the game you totally forget what’s going on there on your fingures.

All of the euphoria went down the tube, when in today’s morning newspaper I read all about deaths due to basant. Most of them were children, who had nothing to do with the festival. Some of them fell prey to an anonymous bullet from nowhere, and the others died due to the string cuts on the neck.

I regret how the irresponsible behavior of a few causes such loss and agony to many.
