oo i love paans :D and their tiny paan shops are fascinating..they form a part of my childhood memories when these tiny corner shops used to be something of great interest for me...standing on my toes to get a clear view of the practiced motions of the paan wala making paans at a quick speed...and not to forget these paan shops keep packs of cigarettes as well ehehehe

You have a nice blog about Lahore. Lahore is a beautiful city with rich cultural heritage. But I don't like Paan.

I read about it in Vikram Seth's book "A Suitable Boy". I think paan is betelnut.
