Cricket is so important



As I watch this semi-final of national 20-20 series in Gaddafi stadium, Lahore, I feel so great looking at this large crowd.

A nation that is so short on entertainment and so high on tension and depression from all sorts of problems is enjoying an evening of relief.

Despite the fact that the match is not as interesting as a usual 20-20, spectators are celebrating every bit of it. Festivals, sports, exhibitions, dramas, movies and all sort of entertainments, that have been part of usual Lahore life have died down to silence not only due to the law and order situation and continued bomb blasts but due to the poor economic condition of the country as well.

I hope things keep going like this and we get back to same old Lahore that is home to dozens of festivals and activities.
