Nowadays, Lahore can be unsurpassed portray as a city that is just so magnificent, so very wonderful, that every corner and turn of the city speaks of a certain lively, a certain enthusiasm, a courage of life, which cannot be found anyplace else in the world. Maybe it is the adulthood of the city, which manifests itself in a variety of parts of Lahore.

It is there in the monuments, in the bazaars, in the old buildings lining the Mall, or in the huge expanses of the sports grounds in the Cantonment. But most vibrantly, this great Lahore spirit is able to be seen in the people of Lahore, the Zinda dilan-e-Lahore.

Honestly our government and people are so careless that non of the above places are clean enough to enjoy! Plus if you compare LHR to international cities you will be deeply depressed and won't find any real good picnic spots!
