An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Basant in Pakistan, a shot kid, and Ganga Ram Hospital!

Unbeknownst to us in India – Basant is a BIG thing in Pakistan. Where every where they fly kites. And when the Pakistanis these days do anything… there is some element of the negative that is somehow thrown in. People use wires as string for the kites.. and use glass covered strings for one-up-man-ship as to who gets more gory! And as if that is not all.. some people fire in the air from the streets.. little realizing that there might be people standing on the roofs in those close-knit streets.. result: many are shot!

Here is a story of this year’s Basant celebration – where it says that how a 11 year kid was killed when his throat was slit by the string! Another kid was shot by one of those retarded celebrating shooters. And where was he taken in Lahore? Ganga Ram Hospital! For a moment I thought that I might have switched pages to some TOI article..
