If you are a Pakistani, you know it’s not an easy job to love the summer season here in the planes.
In fact, most of you will say that that’s an understatement.
But, what is life if we aren’t optimists? So, to pursue that optimism and to take everyone along with me on that ride, I asked around a question that would force people to look for the positive in even this barely-liked season.
Here are 11 of my most favorite answers, all by parts funny, shocking and-above all-overflowing with positivity, to the question-
What do you love about the summer season?
“Longer days. More time to shop.” Zari, 29, HR consultant.
” Two words. Summer dresses-yup, Barns got that right.” SSK, student, 21. (Um. Sure.)
“Lizards. Kidding. This year? The World Cup. FIFA is the bomb.” UR, student, 23.
“Vacations!! Off to Europe, baby.” Gina, teacher, 31. (Take me with you!)
“All the pool parties. The days at the water park. Water fights…did I mention pool parties?” Reems, workaholic, 18.
“The summer break. Why?Cause, hello, brings everyone back in town.” H, amateur photographer/student, 23.
“The tan, of course. Oh. Oh. And the bright colors-like, (they are) everywhere.” Sidu.
” ‘Hot boys’? Or…even better…getting to go back home. In fact, scratch that, mangoes have got to be what keeps me alive in the summers.” Reesh, aspiring philanthropist/student, 20.
“The laziness of it all. The slow mornings with the warm nights and the never ending hang outs all mixed together to give the best of cocktails.” GZ, Business Consultant, 33.
“Swimming. Mangoes. And the spirit of us Pakistanis to do it all despite the killing temperatures.” Dua, student, 21.

The season isn’t so bad after all, or is it?
Enjoy it while it lasts,
