Our repost of our ATP Mushaira post on Anwar Masood prompted reader Shahran Asim to send us this newer audio recording of Anwar Masood commenting on elections in Pakistan. I thought it was not only hilarious but also pertinent; and certainly worth sharing. Thanks, Shahran.

My favorites here is how he starts just with “theek hai!” and the following (especially his use of “burpa” here):

Taraqee iss qadr burpa hoee hai
kissi soorat koi ghatta nahiN hai
bass itni si paraishani hai Anwar
election sarr pe hai atta nahiN hai

Take a listen. Enjoy.
