spring is here
The semester is ending and I am getting lots of emails from my students on how to get the most out of the summer break. So here’s a little list, in no particular order, (which I might keep on expanding later on) outlining some of the things that might make your summer productive.

But dear rickshay walay stylo bhai , I am posting this picture here in the hopes that it gets viral and you can see it someday.
It seems as if every hour is a rush hour in Lahore these days. At around noon today, I got stuck in traffic near Barkat market with a friend. We were waiting for the signal to go green when I noticed this eloquent display of a emotions at the back of a car. I was discussing the possibility that the driver may be the desi version of Schwarzenegger, threatening the evil drivers of Lahore, promising a return in case they refuse to follow the course set by him.
When suddenly another explanation crossed my mind according to which, “I Will Back” was perfectly grammatical. This was when the car started backing up…
