  5. I love Lahore more than any other city . i hav’nt seen people like Lahore any where and its culture as well. We need to save this city from increasing threats of pollution, traffic and randomly built constructions.

  6. Take away this wealth and fame. You may even take my youth but please give me back the rainy season of my childhood, the paper boat and rain water.
    The oldest sign of locality, the old woman whom children called Nani. The stories of Nami about Faires and her wrinkled face telling the ages. The short nights and long tales are unforgettable.
    Coming out of home in scorching heat, Cating sparrow, nigtingale and butterflies, fighting on the marriage of doll, Falling from the swings, the broken
    Tehseen Awan
