Trip to Lahore – Day 1

Trip to Lahore

Trip to Lahore - LUMS Olympiad

Day 1

Every day we pass Malir Cantt road and look at train but right now we are in train and watching the same Malir Cantt road and its heavy traffic and one police officer who is trying to control the traffic. The difference is that when we are in ‘Point’ we are heading towards ‘One of the prestigious university of the world (FAST-NU)’ a sentence which is at peak now a days after organizing ‘unilympics’, which is one of the best event organized by Sportix.

We have been selected as delegates (Participants) for LUMS (Lahore University of Management Science) Olympiad Competition and right now we are in Karachi Express Train. Train speed is approximately 70km/hour, which I guess is very low and is in same pace for about 25 minutes.


Its 6:40pm and Tabish and AI (Ali Iftikhar) are in my compartment and doing recitation. We are scared, you know… little… I guess. Anyways, Akif is still thinking. I don’t know what he wants but he is still trying to find new problems. We call him ‘The problem manufacturer’. Our compartment ‘F’ includes me, Ali Iftikhar, Ali Maisam, Akif, Tabish and Irtaza where Hamza, Hammad, Ali Sheikh and Samad are in compartment ‘G’.


Irtaza has just posted a new facebook status and it reads ‘Lahore trip begins… chuk chuk chuk chuk’


Its 6:55pm and some anonymous uncle, I guess he is Memon, is forcing us to offer Namaz. We are going to offer ‘Bajamaat Namaz’ in train. We have very limited space outside our compartment where we have to offer namaz. I guess width is not more than 2ft.


We have just crossed Malir Bridge and right now we can see our University tower from this small window. One thing that I want to add here is that we all are missing Arqam, who was supposed to come with us but because of unfortunate consequences he didn’t manage to make up this trip.


Do you know we have mosquitoes here? I mean how this is even possible. The clock reads 8:10pm and Ali Sheikh and Samad are in our compartment and Fika (Akif) is making ‘Sheesha’. This is my first trip to Lahore and I am excited actually, I am excited because I am leaving bhains colony for one week. Compartment is centralized AC and environment is peaceful, entertaining, No HQ or Big Picture. And most importantly we are independent. INDEPENDENT for one week… this is another factor of this excitement that we are feeling right now. By the way the second party (Hamza and all other seniors) are in compartment where that Memon Uncle is lecturing.


Right now we are at Kotri Station and trying to figure out how much time we have got because I have watched many Indians movies in which heroine loses her train and then hero comes and then blah blah. All we can see here are many Pathans & weird people. Ali Iftikhar is pissed off because I am wearing his sandals. All I can hear is the whistle of Karachi Express train so let me first reach to my compartment.


Its 9:05pm and we are at Hyderabad junction. Akif and AI are outside trying to figure out what food they should buy. As more and more people are picking this train to reach their destiny we have to be extra careful and so we are securing our luggage, which includes from toothbrush to mp3 player. Oh! I got sms… see you later.


Lolz Hamza bought two dozens of banana, some LAYS and some biscuits. We are going to play board game that Tabish bought. So see you later. Bye
