Love and Sex at LUMS 2: 9/11 Destined For Misery


Friday afternoon I had to read Tajwar’s erotic email and since then I cannot help put picture the three scenarios she had put forth in her email. While I regret not being able to witness these spectacles that have apparently slaughtered the LUMS brand; I cannot help wonder in amusement what the contraire is. It has been a year since I have been in LUMS (touch wood) and I was under the illusion that “making third base home runs” was the LUMS culture. In fact I always thought it was the new black and felt like a pariah the preceding year. While I honor either opinions on the subject of PDA, I am still in shock why would anyone want to picture “………. A girl’s half naked leg and a boys hand up the other half of capries”.

I think I am totally missing the point. Are capries a fashion faux pas? And how do you spell capries??

“…………….and he said to the believing men, lower your gaze and guard your modesty” So now I am thinking you lower your gaze and you see half naked legs and that does not leave much of a believer in anyone does it?

So we are in agreement making out on public is a bad idea but extortion and blackmailing a.k.a mass mailing is somewhat suitable. Maybe Tajwar is right maybe it is just lesser of the two evils. We should totally take pictures of Luminites hand in hand and then mass email them around. Then we will be really preserving “the brand”.

I was fasting when I read that email. Curse you people who believe this is a moral issue yet have no concern for people’s sensitive libidos. And talking about over active libidos, yes we have all seen questionable acts of indiscretion but they can totally be ignored. Tajwar complains that her parents were skeptical about sending her to LUMS but wasn’t that in the 70’s. Larki you had four years to bring it up; why now? You have courageously tolerated this fiesta, why are you pulling the plug on it when you have 6 months left? Humari bari ai to main nai khelti??

I have the all the respect on all the opinions (I don’t think that makes me a very subtle person but anyhow) but are we being so intolerant. As JC said ““Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s”. Clearly the man has a point there. In the midst of the mass mailing cross fire innocent bystanders are getting shot. I think one of the liberals expressed harsh opinions on beards. The matter has gone on a tangential path and we see a LUMS divided. Remember the good old days when a boy in overalls was explaining Freud to a girl in a tank top; the cool dudes used to cross dress and it was okay to use four letter words in PDC. Lets us go back to our Luminite roots. We are promoting modernity and our arguments are getting primitive.

Contrary to Tajwar’s claim, it has everything to do with emotional liberal concerns and a religious stand point. The tone was clearly emotional on that end. We have no idea what you went through to be so miserable on the subject. Aunties and virginity was totally out of proportion. The credibility of our institution does not ensure virgins but well educated ladies. At least that is the general idea. And lastly what culture are you speaking off? LUMS is the archetype of the prevailing culture amongst the mummy daddy genre of students. Nothing of the sort has been done which is not already seen across Lahore in every café, car and blind spot

    Dear Mr. Whoever,

    I am amazed that why people are so obsessed with controversial and so called erotic stories which as you have already claimed you hadn’t observed yourself. Writing an article without having solid proof and basing it on just an “erotic” mail which was very successful to catch your attention, is nothing more than stupidity.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t come across any non-luminite who would have ever talked about the 24 hour tableegh process in LUMS conducted by best known Muftis in town and regular visitors like Junaid Jamshed, Saeed Anwer and many others. The problem isn’t with the environment in LUMS, rather problem lies in the mind of many others including you who want to focus on EROTIC and false issues to increase the viewership of your website. And that is really a nasty and cheap way of self promotion.

    Next time its better to get the evidence before writing such a creepy and wortless article.

    P.S: Moreover, replace LUMS with any other university name and you will get more viewers on board.

    Dear. Douchebag Saqib

    I dont know how this article got here caz i published it for Lums Daily Student and not to get viewership of people that never made it to LUMS and are now jealous to up their neck in misery. It was a genuine response to a genuine issue at LUMS wich you wont knw about caz lets face it you didnt get in. And if you want to know the how ignorant you are this topic has been published all thru national newspapers and internationally as well. So do background check before u make uniformed and frankly rude comments on other peoples work.

    “The credibility of our institution does not ensure virgins but well educated ladies.”

    I love this. I’m really sick and tired of how around here, a woman without an intact hymen is considered useless. Whereas the men who want a virgin on their wedding night have been around the block plenty of times- they’re the ones rendering other women “useless”. Thank you!
