The Current Insider
Thursday, 31st December 2020
There is no doubt that this has been a difficult year for us. We might be enjoying some cool sunshine today in all major cities of Pakistan thinking, it’s the 31st today. Where did this year go? I don’t think I would be wrong to say that food saved us this year. It feels like everyone cooked, baked, ate and passed the time hoping to survive. Survive we did but what does next year hold? For The Current’s team it was a variety of food: Saman ate ice cream from a local Lahore shop Frostis, Urooj ate French fries (she always does), Ayesha had chicken chili dry,  Amna survived on chocolate and our food reviewer lived on dumba karahi. 2020 left us all uncertain about the future and hum subh nay khoob kahaya, kay chalo kuch tou karein. Nawaz Sharif came under severe criticism for eating pizza and roaming around London and seems like if he isn’t back before Feburary, he won’t be having any Pakistani pizza either. I ate a lot watching Pakistani dramas this year and here is the list of the highest viewed Pakistani drama episodes in 2020 and obviously Meray Paas Tum Ho made the cut. A few new dramas came out this week and Ashar and Ayesha tell you if they are worth the watch. One of our most commented on stories today is that the international furniture brand ‘IKEA’ is coming to Pakistan – sparking the debate: should we make and promote our own furniture instead? I have to admit there was a lot to smile about this year too, news that made us Pakistanis proud, including the eight Pakistani women who are among the world’s 100 most outstanding nurses and midwives. The government has given a go-ahead to purchase a million vaccines that will cover the frontline health workers first – in early 2021. Good things at the beginning of 2021 and drama star Srha Asghar ended her year by getting married in a simple Nikkah ceremony . It’s early in the morning but I’m sure you’ve decided how you are going to spend your New Years Eve. Reply to this newsletter and let us know! Would love to hear from you. 

P.S. I lived on chicken biryani – the ultimate comfort food.

Current Baba’s Prediction 

It’s good to have all those plans and celebrate the new year’s eve but please go easy on the food and drinks, warna kahin overeating ki waja say new year ka pehla din bemaari mien na guzar jaye.
