Just read in Daily Times that the prices of Nan are increased by a Rupee by the majority of tandoors in Karachi. Though it will not make a significant difference to most of the readers at KMB, it might cause a stir in the lives of tens of thousands of mazdoors who use the tandoors twice a day for their mid-day and evening meal.
As for me, I still appreciate the work that these tandoor walas do to by providing taza rotiaan at such a low prices. Its a big naimat that we get this huge variety of taza rotian, nan, parathay, sheermaal, taaftan, qeema roti, makayee ki roti, roghni nan, chapati at such a low price. I assume most of the people do not appreciate the fact and take this for granted. Only after you travel abroad or have lived in a foreign country, that you start realizing the bounties that lie in our own land and start missing the things we always take for granted.

reports that the price is raised to save the industry from falling apart. Well, as far as my knowledge goes its famous in the tandoor business that you save one bori (sack) of floor on every bori sold.

Just a random suggestion to all Karachi people, I think you should all try eating sheermaal (beghair chheetay kay) with tea. Its gooood!

    Sofi Sahib you said it right. No one at KMB (readers and bloggers) would get effected significantly. It is the poor mazdoor class that would have to cut down on a meal. May Allah help them and provide them more rizq inshaAllah
