16 Reasons why Karachi can never become Lahore

Lahore-Karachi war is not new. The rift between the two biggest metropolitan cities is very old as Karachites keep on throwing shades as how they are better than Lahoris. This war is endless. I believe Karachites suffer with serious impostor syndrome whenever I read the comparisons they draw to look down at us. I am sorry but not sorry at all for writing to all those who keep on firing or lashing at Zinda dilan e Lahoris for one reason or another, and the reasons too pretty baseless. I thought of jotting down 7 points why Life in Lahore is way better than Karachi. But when I started writing I thought 7 are not enough because I had another 9 points to further clear to all the chauvinists and justify why Lahore Lahore Hai.

P.S the article is just for fun so please no offence.

1. We don’t die in a freaking BORI

2. We only call someone “Bhai” if we have same parents and yes we never HAVE to listen to them forcefully.

I hope all the people who have an eye around got me.

3. When a leader dies, we acknowledge the reality of it. No “Jiay” and No “Zinda” hai.

4. We can talk on the phone while walking in our street and we don’t need an extra Nokia 3310 to protect our iPhone.
