Love thy neighbour: why the Pak-India 'hotness' debate is futile

pakistan india just a border apart
The tweet seems to be just another attempt to use national rivalry to gain something (in this case, publicity).

Did you catch the big battle between India and Pakistan this weekend? No, not the cricket match, the Twitter battle that ensued when India’s Buzzfeed editor tweeted this:

Socialite Entrepreneurs boost the Economy - Women in Pakistan taking charge of their own destiny

Published in the Express Tribune on May 19th

Designer Khadija Shah with the editors of Paper magazine
There was a time when the only work socialites did was light charity fundraising – organising expensive balls for their chums or sweet-talking friends and family into donating. Not anymore. High society designers like SanaSafinaz are now an economic force to be reckoned with, employing thousands of workers, with sales running into millions of rupees.
The list of what top fashion journalists have termed “socialite designers” reads like a who’s who of both fashion and society. From Khadijah Shah to newcomers like Misha Lakhani, many of fashion’s elite are “it-girls” who certainly don’t need to work and yet have built professional, thriving businesses. Many society women, such as Nadia and Ayesha Ellahi, design on a smaller scale; to the extent where it now seems there is a “designer” in every family.
However, socialite entrepreneurs haven’t limited themselves to just designing clothes. They are running furniture shops, salons, bakeries, shoe shops, gyms and more. Many start out in a small way, holding exhibitions for friends and family. For some, this is as far as they go, finding small-scale exhibitions the perfect vehicle for a work-life balance. Others, however, use exhibitions as a springboard to a more professional approach selling online or even opening an outlet.
