Lahore Nama is getting noticed

Lahore Nama is getting some attention. This is encouraging as the Lahoris across the globe share my sentiments about this inimitable city.. (Raza Rumi)

This is what Koonj had to say in her post entitled A treasure chest for Lahore-lovers:

Thanks to Baraka, a fellow nostalgic Lahorite, I have found Lahore Nama. The blog is a treasure-chest of jewels for those who love the old, old and very, very modern city of Lahore. Lahore is where I spent most of my life. It is one of the largest cities in Pakistan, just on the border to India, and the capital city of Punjab province. The river Ravi runs through it (or one should use the past tense, given the state of the river), and it is the scene of tremendous academic, religious, literary and cultural activity.

I am a denizen of the city – my father, who was born and raised there, describes himself as a “Lahore ka keera” (literally, a bug of Lahore, which means one who knows the city like the back of his hand). I still yearn for it everyday, and whenever I return, I discover secrets and jewels tucked away in its dusty streets and along its willow-lined canal banks. Mughal monuments, Sufi shrines, colonial architecture, the lively world of the inner city and the oh-so-chic world of the upper-classes – Lahore has everything.

  2. Assalam-alaikam,
    although I wasn’t born in Lahore, my sasural is there and I have fallen in love with the city – its food, anarkali bazaar, the style and way of speaking of its people. I can’t wait to visit this year.

  5. Thanks RR for bringing out this Letter from Lahore. Lahore is home to all the people, Punjabis or non Punjabis. The signature tune of “Lhore Lhore ae” tells every aspect, new and old of Lahore as a city for all peoples, all seasons and all times.
