La Tomatina festival in Lahore.....ASSHOLERY!
When people complained about Basant and Rung in Pakistan, I was the first one to argue that it was just people having fun! BUT this....this going a little far. In a country where people cant afford to buy a dozen tomatoes for a decent meal, thousands of veggies will be WASTED to ape another country's culture....and the film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara!
Really guys? Reallyyy....????? You done LOST your mind!
If this event actually does take place, it would not just be the wastage of a valuable food resource. The very fact that tomatoes, which are currently among the priciest of goods in the average sabzi mandi (vegetable market), this event is going to be a slap in the face of any underprivileged onlooker. You would be telling him/her that you have the power of not just affording but also wasting an item that costs more than half of their daily wage.
Pakistan...you do realize you will be imitating another part of history soon....the French Revolution happen!
