Honey, I am home!

‘Cabin crew prepare for landing’ pulled me out of my peaceful slumber

A few highs and lows and finally the wheels touched the ground

It was still dark outside with only a few illuminated dots miles away

Sun was fast asleep – completely zonked out

As I stepped out of the sardined Boeing 777

A delightful and extremely humid breeze of air fanned my face

My chaotic hair flew back in perfect submission,as I breathed this air

My body loved the dramatic transition

From a snowy London to a springy Lahore

From -2 degrees to 20 degrees.

I had travelled in time, from one season to another

In eight hours, just like a movie on fast forward

Finally, back to where I belong.

Honey, I am home!

Bash or Blood?

During my first year in Uni, I studied Communication Skills. As part of our module, we were supposed to make a documentary film on a subject of our own choice. Me and my two friends chose Basant. Basant is a kite-flying festival which is usually a way of welcoming spring! It is widely celebrated in Punjab, both Pakistan as well as India.

The historic city of Lahore is the hub of all Basant festivities. People from all over the country and even abroad come to Lahore to celebrate the ‘Kite-Flying’ Festival in true Lahori enthusiasm. In the recent years, corporate brands have sponsored concerts, decorated park and gone to extreme  lengths by producing Basant advertisements on TV during the much hyped season. One gets to see Yellow everywhere and hospitable Lahoris are always spotted on the roofs, either flying kites or arranging entertaining barbecue evenings. However, since the past few  years Basant has been banned due to its extreme negative consequences. Metallic twines used to fly kites are a great threat to life and safety.

This short documentary film highlights our concerns, as we aim to get the answer: ‘Basant: Bash or Blood?’

We made this in  2007 so please please ignore some sound and other technical issues.

Made by 3 girls who are still very proud of it.

Hope you enjoy! xx
