It seems that kulfi carts are becoming the new Rickshaws. The subject of kitsch art and kitsch poetry. As a fan of both, I love these qulfi carts as much as I do rickshaws.

In this picture, the first misra may well relate to this very kulfi cart, viz a viz some of the more decorated ones we have seen before:

Teri saadgi mein itna husn hai, teray singhar mein kiya ho ga
Teray ghusay mein itna piyar hai, teray piyar mein kiya ho ga

Kulfi carts on ATP: 1, 2, 3.

Rickshaws on ATP: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11.

    Nice one. I think the real story here is how important poetry is to ordinary Pakistanis. On their trucks and on their qulfi carts and on their rickshaws, they use it to express what they are really feeling.

    Unfortunately, mummy-daddy types like ‘Tanzeel’ are too sanitized and ‘clean’ to understand the sentiments to the ‘garbage’ awam of ordinary Pakistanis!

    @ Tanzeel
    Be nice :-)
    Mr Bhitai was funny and a constructive critic. You and Mr Musharaf are not.

    It more looks like a garbage cart than Kulfi one.

    Maybe someone should collect all the pictures of qulfi carts in one place. It will be a nice post.
