Pakistani girls are preparing for the Punjabi spring festival called Basant. The city of Lahore marks the beginning of spring with the Basant carnival, an orgy of kite-flying, rooftop soirees, garden parties and equestrian events, much to the disgust of Islamic clerics. Lahories and out-of-town enthusiasts don glamorous clothes, in the yellow and green of spring flowers blooming citywide, to bid farewell to the frosts and fogs of winter and usher in spring.
Girls love to wear yellow shalwar kameezes during the season and dress up most fabulously for the occasion. Punjabi girls from Islambad and as far away as Bahawalpur and even Karachi converge upon Lahore to partake in the much awaited Basant celebrations.
People all over the world come Lahore to participate and enjoy Basant festival. Its getting world wide popularity.
