And I lands in the Multans :) and it’s hot here. America mai na Japan main, hum to cook ho gye sheher Multan main ;)
My God! Airplanes are magical. You realize that when you have travelled via train from Karachi to any city in Punjab
My God! Even the kids cry in punjabi or saraiki on flight to multan
On plane: Ji its OK you may have mine :)
Once off the plane: The same guy fights in punjabi to get on the overcrowded PIA bus ‘ma huni jana a’
Yeah I heard that there’s a lot of construction going on in Multan . Thanks to PM saab. pakistan jae bhar ma, Multan sanwaro

Multan Airport reminds me of those PAF Sargodha Entry Tests I appeared for in 8th grade. Freaky memories :p
Noticable changes in Multan-roads painted
I swear Multan is totally deserted. No cars on roads. Juma prayers it is
One great feeling when you are in the Punjab – you can easily use your mobile without the fear of getting robbed
And driver tells me his headlines of the day- some guys murdered a women in Khanewal by cutting her throat and placing a blanket over it to steal her pension
Oh yeah baby! Fry me up multan. Its the 4th time that I asked the driver if the AC is working. He says it is. I am not convinced.
Lol Gilani’s daughter reminds me of that newspaper article she wrote for Bilawal. That was like honey dipped ice-ball ;)
You ask for any good place for shopping in Multan. And the answer you get is this three-storey Chenone Tower :p always – true story!
The driver took me to a continental guest house :@ He was instructed to let me get rest. These Mothers!
Back on route to Khanewal. It’s like a small drive from I.I.Chundrigarh to Hasan square in Karachi
Majority of the houses in Multan have no paint on the external walls. Or they just get distemper
Passing shah shams shrine in Multan, Pakistan. Shah shams was named so because he is said to have called the sun closer to multan when he was ridiculed by people and zamindar
Multan looks the same way on Friday as Karachi and Lahore look on Sunday (and Islamabad everyday :p) : that is ‘raped n deserted’
You know you are in Punjab when you can see a big double-storey houses. In Karachi you get to see them in selected areas only
Owing to similar design of houses in a Multan you can always tell where the bathroom is located in a house by looking from the outside :p
Omg! I can see lot of Satu Stalls around my roads. Now this is special stuff. Please don’t tell me you have never tried satu
Lots of new societies under construction in Multan – a lot of fraudulent promises to rob people I must say
Multan is building its own defense after such a long time. Good opportunity to play on brand name for DHA.
Ah! Tried to take a picture of Bahauddun Zikriya University – one of largest universities in Punjab. For me BZU is a university whose masters students can’t speak or talk in English – no offence please.
Roads in Multan in day looking like roads in karachi at 4 AM
Just saw a huge boars ‘Dubai Property Dealer – the best in town’ another Dubai dissed maniac?
Multan and its surrounding – mostly crowded with the Barailvi sect in Muslims. Too many people with green amamas (turbans) and mosques with shouting amamas
Pak Arab Fertilizer Company – an associate of Arif Habib Group has made billions by importing cheap fertilizers last year and selling high.
Water parks in Multan: the rule is to stay away from slides. Every day they have injured people there. I used to love water parks in my childhood. With growing age, I find no entertainment as filthy as it can be. If you have been to Eater Park in Lahore and Multan you must have seen people playing volley ball in water pools with aam ki guthli :p
O yeah! Now the belt of mango n orange farms starts now :)
Ah! People swimming in streams in shalwar and no shirt. That’s the classic summer scene in Punjab, Pakistan

Red colored cows are more abundant in Multan than any other city of Pakistan. A pride symbol it is!
Ever took bath in front of a tube well pipe in Pakistan. It has its own ecstasy! Try it dude
Masali school in Muzafargarh – a boarding school breeding gays in Pakistan – I am not exaggerating. A disasterous educational institute
Where else in Pakistan would you stop to buy a water bottle and get lassi instead owing to the unavailability of drinking water? Multan it is :)
Do you know what’s ‘kasi’? A very small village with very less population is called ‘kasi’. They are named like ‘aik kasi’, ‘do kasi’, ‘teen kasi’ …
And I have reached Khanewal finally. Will sign off soon since it will take me an hour to reach home because u have to meet every other guy here
Good thing in small cities is, everyone knows you. Small distances take a longer time to cover because you have to stop so many times to meet people
