Preparations for Basant reached their zenith in Lahore on Friday, as hundreds of thousands of people from outstation and abroad have reached here for the 24-hour festivities beginning on Saturday night. Shops selling kites and twine were drawing great rush of people, who bought the required stocks despite the high prices. There was a great rush of people at such shops in and around the Walled City, a nerve centre of Basant, and almost everywhere in the expanding metropolis.
