Owais Mughal

(1) Rustam-e-Pakistan dangal reaches Finals Stage

Mr. Basheer Bhola Bhala has qualified for the Finals of Rustam-e-Pakistan dangal after knocking out Mr. Azhar Lurhka within 10 minutes in the Semi Finals

Following is a photo of Rustam-e-Pakistan dangal procession (July 25, 2008), where wrestlers along with their teachers are passing through the city streets. Will our knowledgable readers confirm if they recognize Bashir bhola bhala or Azam Lurhka in this photo? The guy in pink turban looks like Basheer but he doesn’t look bhola bhala (simpleton) so I am at a loss.

(2) Weather Report for Gujranwala, August 4, 2004

A hopelessly romantic reporter of Jang has fielded this classic weather report about Gujranwala today.

(3) What Happened when a Post Mortem House got shifted

skeletonAfter the PM (post mortem) house got shifted near a boys and a girls educational institute in Shaikhupura; All local social, political and religious parties have joined hands to start an agitation movement. Good to see everyone coming together for a cause. One person has rightly claimed that the reason behind this agitation movement is that new vicinity of Post Mortem house will create scare and panic among the students of nearby institutions.

(4) Ex-Chief Minister’s ‘kharaag

This person has lost Chief Ministership but still enjoys the same un-official perks as before. Should I dare to use the Urdu idiom:

‘zinda haathi ek laakh ka, aur murda haathi sawa-laakh ka’

    I remember a headline of an Urdu daily about the rain related problems of locality in Peshawar, it reads:
    Baarish nay Zargar Abad Kay Massail ko Hazar say Zarb Day Dee.

    @ Weather report for Gujranwala August 4, 2004

    the reportage was in perfect Urdu, but in the last, however,
    the word ” enjoy ” was converted in Urdu, so became as
    ugly as if you received a very parfumed pan ki peak on your
    lovely shirt ! this word is used quasi-total in punjab, why
    can’t they simply say it in urdu
    ” Lutf-undoz,
    purlutf he,
    lutf utha rehay hein !
    Khush-kun
    Man bhata mausum
    Khushgawar mausum se lutf-undoz ho rehay hein,
    or in commun Urdu = bohat mazah araha hey !!

    @Pahlwan ji, kia baat he, keep on wrestling, continue
    this sport, Rustam-e-Pakistan, oay ! Chuk dey !!
