    Pinglish has been around for sometime. In the 1970’s, a relative from the UK on holiday was already saying,
    “Othe bintraN vich cold nae lagdee; housaN ‘ch HeataN chchadiyaN hundiyaN ne…”

    Adil,
    On my last trip to Karachi i was horrified to read some English signboards…They were definitely in pinglish! One of the more funnier one was outside a Kebab roll place in Tariq Road “Cheeken Rolles” and the other one which i found troubling was “Erthquak Veectims blood donation” Why bother writing in english? Why not just write in Urdu?
