These Islamabadis Reading Intense Romantic Text Messages Will Make You LOL

By Ather Ahmed | 6 Oct, 2017

Ever since mobile phones came on the scene, texting has been used as a chichora yet effective tool for flirting in Pakistan. Telecom companies have actually thrived on the culture of lovey-dovey text exchanges among couples, through a host of economical night packages. It appears that even literature has begun to take inspiration from this phenomena.

It was apparently found in the South Asian literature section alongside some of the greatest literary masterpieces to come out from this part of the world. Upon close inspection by a member of comedy troupe Theater Wallay named Rabia, it was found that the book contains an anonymous woman’s text messages to her ‘jaanu‘.

 

And then an idea struck!

“When Rabia brought the book to the next Theatre Wallay meeting, we laughed ourselves silly at the texts, while some texts turned our ears red they were that risque” said Haseeb Ali Chisti another member of Theatre Wallay. These guys went on to do something remarkable with their new discovery.

“We decided to do a series of dramatized readings of the text messages because well, we had to! It’s too good not to be shared essentially” exclaimed Haseeb.

 

Now this is just heartbreaking **sniff sniff**

Here’s part of their video

Theatre Wallay plan to release a total of four episodes on this book.

“Given that there were 10 copies of this book stacked on the shelf while Arundhati Roy’s book only had 5 copies does make you wonder about the reading habits of Pakistanis”, noted Haseeb.
