Aye Jazbah e Dil Gar May Chahooon ….

“Har Cheeez Band Ho Jaayay ….”

With apologies from Behzad Lakhnawi’s departed soul (the poet of “Aye Jazbah e Dil” in case you’re not aware).

As if the shunning of All Private Channels from the Cables was not enough, news are Government takings teps to prohibit dish Antennas selling too. With 60+ channels coming on cable, very few people go for exuberant choices available on Dish Antennas.

As I earlier posted about PTV’s Glory Time, the reminiscences of early 90’s is getting settled in. When Dish Antennas came in lime light, every single house in here used to have one installed on their roofs or terraces. A few years later, seeing two dishes erected was a common sight, we are never fulfilled :-) PTV struggled to compete with satellite channels, resulting in tragic presentation, standards lost (if there were any).

Images like the one below reminds me of when I went to buy the dish more than a decade back.

People hungry for the news in the absence of cable networks are buying dish antennas to fish for “the news” in the sky.


Read the news here or the one embedded below.


Happy Watching PTV :o)

Sab accha hay!

    We all need to support the LAW, if we dont support the LAW e.g BE BE of PPP Govt told them that dont do long marches on roads and keep under security shell, but know she wants to see lovers of her party, she provided a chance and time to plan the blast in her road rally in Karachi.

    Now again she is aksing to have road rally in Rawalpindi Liquet Bagh and Govt is not allowing her to have it beecause of the sucide blasts,

    Why she does not understand the situation ?????
    She want to make this country messed up or Trash ….

    simply is that she needs to take rest and fallow LAW..

    Send your thoughts to president Musharaf on this website.

    If he receives millions of messages he will realize what has he done.He is probably suffering from some psychiatric disorder and does not have an insight into it.
    just sent him this message
    you have done a shameful and selfish act in the last phase of your life.You will certainly repent.I sincerely advise you to get help from some good psychiatrist,Dr Fareed Minhas is a good one in Rawalpindi.
