Pakistan In Pictures

Aadab, Lucknow!

From the long dastarkhawan (spread of food) to the rich meals of the Nawabs, Lucknow is known for its hospitality and food. And Avari Hotel is all set to provide the luxury and delight of Lakhnavi fine dining in Pakistan.

Being the latest addition to the hotel, the Lakhnavi is a one-of-a-kind restaurant — it is the only place in the country serving authentic Lakhnavi cuisine.


 Avari Hotel has flown notable chefs from Lucknow to Pakistan, so that they can train the chefs in Lahore. With nearly 20-minute intervals between each course, an average meal can take two hours to finish.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s fashion industry seems hell-bent on defying the country’s current economic conditions, as evidenced by Toni & Guy launching their latest and largest world franchise in Islamabad on Saturday evening. With the addition of the expert salon, it appears the otherwise quaint city will get a chance to add some character to its landscape.

KARACHI: Music knows no boundaries. You need not know the language in which a song has been sung in order to appreciate it. Its beauty lies in its tonality and more importantly, the universality of its message. Speaking of music, a recent development that is music to our ears is ‘Project Lalala’, which has been initiated by the French cultural institution Alliance Fran├žaise.
