The Uprising of 1857 War of Independence

            The Uprising of 1857 War of                                        Independence

        The subcontinent had great importance in the history due to natural resources. It attracted Turks, Afghan rulers and central Asian rulers. Apart from this the Britishers also took interest in the region. They settled here as traders in the reign of Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Later on, they came across the weakness of Muslims and finally they took control of whole sub-continent. The traders became the masters of the region. Muslims and Hindus joined the British government. The government made such policies which were totally antagonistic to local traditions. The policies Pushed them against Britishers. They fought war against the state.

      The British government considered “the
uprising” as revolt. They thought that local were the servants of state and they should not have fought war. The indigenous writers considered if war of independence. In their opinion, the Muslim 8! Hindu soldiers Fought for their freedom and for their legal rights from which they were neglected.

           In general, if we think for a while, we will come to know about the fact that the Britishers were not local ruler rather they were foreigners who deprived their rights and it was right of both Muslim and Hindu to protect their land from foreigners. So that’s why we always consider it as war of independence.

          The Britishers treated Indian bestially. They were sold as slaves in Europe. They were usedas guards. 'Iheir resources were used for London, Under these circumstances, the uprising of 1857 will be considered as war of independence because they fought for homeland and it will not be called as mutiny.

         We have evidence from British history. Benjamin Dissaeli, the opposition leader of British parliament at that time, declared the uprising of 1857 was not mutiny but it was their legal right.

From the above brief discussion, we can simply say it was war of independence. Although it was joint struggle of both Muslims and Hindus,But Muslims were targeted as cause of it.

  The political party of that time i.e congress
 also took care of interest of Hindus.So that's why Sir Syed Ahmed Khan told Muslim not to cooperate  with congress and finally they organized their own political party named as All India Muslim League.

Diversity, the Beautiful

                             Diversity, the Beautiful


          From a scientific perspective, diversity is a key-stone and core function of the entire universe.One can imagine that without diversity all around, the universe would have been a uni-worse place. Global food chain and its interdependency complexes develop a food web among all the members of plants and animals and all those which are living but they do not fall into the category of plants and animals.
   
          Each and every family member of this global food web is an important player and is a key link or a bridging unit of its own limit and level in general or in specific terms among food chain tiers enabling each other to co-exist.

Religio-political history of the global community does not offer much of respectful experiences in its Pool. Even though several examples are attractive and appealing in all societies across the globe. One of such an example cited by Dimont Max in his work  "The Indestructible Jews" that in Medina a society emerged of "three religions and 'one bedroom", wherein "Muhammadans, Christians and Jews shared the same brilliant civilization, an intermingling that affected 'bloodlines' even more than religious affiliations".

                Besides several key verses and messages on diversity in the Holy Scriptures, a representative verse from Quran quotes, ordained by God in the following way "Let there be no compulsion in religion". This human's friendly principle was practically implemented in Medina just after a decade of migration from Mecca by the Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH) in the form of a 'civil code' widely referred as the "constitution of Medina".
 
      According to the law brought forward by the said constitution, 'all the religious and racial communities of the city will enjoy equal rights and obligations under the law and there is no superiority', the prophet pronounced, "for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a non-Arab over a Arab, nor for the white over a black nor for a black over a white except in piety".

Religions of the world in their true sense offer excellent civil society principles, democratic and humanistic ethos including respect for diversity and plurality. Encourage inter - faith dialogue, harmony and consultative processes in settlement of disputes and conflict resolution, which ultimately condemn the rootless theory "The Clash of Civilizations" by Huntington.

        To promote and encourage plurality one may need remarkable ethnic and religious tolerance in the society. Where as the decline and fall of mighty Mughal Empire in India and several others across the globe through the history was largely due to disrespect and reversal of pluralist ethos.

       The Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations in 1948 is very closely lined with the "constitution of Medina" proposed and implemented by the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) except in its geographical wideness. Declaration endorses the 'religious freedom' worldwide. Regretfully, several Islamic states showed their reservations and concerns regarding its universality and Implementation. Although, Pakistan and its neighbors did not see any inconsistency between the commitment to the human rights and Islamic values.

         In a contemporary global scenario, specifically in biological terms, "DIVERSITY" falls into the categoiy of 'Endangered' word functionally not only in the third world countries but even in the developed countries. It is because that the developed countries and the multinationals have not played their due role in promoting and ensuring the implementation of true democratic values neither they have encourage
enough the pluralistic norms across the global village.

          One can evaluate major threats to the diversity are; exploitation of democracy by the super or semi super powers of the world, orthodoxy and secular fundamentalism, geo-political disputes, non - directional and random development, globalization led by vested-interest multinationals and biased international media.

     The only way that diversity could be expressed as a strength and not weakness, if the global cornrniinity, the mighty and the poor both ends reasonably accommodate the ethno-cultural and religio-polittcal variations in their socio-cultural traditions and values'. Otherwise in a world of disrespect and disregard for diversity, one can recall this  statement by a unanimous thinker that "science, thought, humanity how to fly in the air but not how to live on earth."


Sea Buckthorn - History, uses and benefits-A marvelous shrub

Sea Buckthorn -A marvelous shrub

SEA BUCKTHORN (Hippophae Rhamnoides) is a kind of wild bush found in Northern Areas Pakistan, specially abundantly found in the Ghizer district of Gilgit-Baltistan. I still remember chasing around the fields of "Burrie didoure" ,yes!! that's what we call them in Shina, a language spoken widely in the Ghizer District, while running after each other playfully. 
In China it is famous as "Magic Plant" where more than 150 factories are producing about 200 foods, medicinal and cosmetic products on commercial scale. Since the ancient Tibetans started using sea buckthorn more than one thousand years ago, hundreds of Asians traditional recipes have been developed and carried on through generations utilizing the nutritional and medicinal properties of the berry. As attractive as they look, they seems to have a variety of uses too. 

Through the long history of application as food and medicinal ingredients, sea buckthorn berry is known to be effective in treating wounds, inflammation, mucous membrane, related disorders and disease such as cough, sputum, gastric and gynecological problems and tumors. The recent researches have revealed that the use of sea buckthorn products has highly been effective to improve immunity, normalize metabolism of cholesterol, promote blood circulation by removing blood stasis, treatment of gastric ulcers, liver protection, cardiovascular diseases, anemia, aids tumor inhabiting, reduces inflammation, diminishes swelling and accelerate the generation of tissues. Being an individual who suffer from severe acne, I have also been told to use them as a facial scrubs, so all you people out there or anyone going through any skin problems, give it a try!

During the past few decades, inspired by the long traditional use and the increasing public recognition of the benefit of natural products, scientists have carried out extensive research. This has resulted in an improved understanding of the health effects and the comical composition of the berry. It is known that the berry is rich in multiple lipophilic and hydrophilic bioactive compounds such as Vitamin C and E, carotenoids, flavonoids, fatty acids, plant sterols, lignins and minerals.

According to the scientific research, the sea buckthorn fruit and leaves contain more than 200 bio-chemicals substances which are vital for human health. The perfect combination of the bioactive composition e.g. Vitamins, amino acids, flavones, serine, phosphate, amylase, alkaloids, unsaturated fatty acids, phenolic compounds, trace elements keep wonderful harmony with human requirements. The supper oxide dismutase (SOD) content is very high and for this reason sea buckthorn is called as "Miracle Plant" and as high potential for its use in medicine, health care and food products.

Happiness is Home Made

           Happiness is Home Made


        Regardless of whether we live in US, Pakistan or anywhere else, family is the building block of any society and our greatest fulfilment lies there; of course, one needs to give due importance to work, but if any society works diligently every other area but neglects the family, it would be same as straightening deck chairs on the Titanic. 

   We all seek happiness but what most of us discover is that happiness is a home - made product.If you have a strong and effective relationship with 
family member, whether living together or apart.When your family is heading in the right direction, you are better able to perform and focus at work.Thus it is supremely important that at home, with 
your family, you concentrate on creating a beautiful family. 

         Marriage is more than a contractual 
relationship it is a promise from each individual to stay true to their love at commitment while I can't tell you how to choose the right mate. I can advise you to detemuae, what your values and principals are and who might be a complementary accompanion. Happy marriages don't just happen they are created with body, mind heart and spirit no one can afford to get lazy in their relationship with their spouse. It must nurture and tended to and when it gets off the track.

We know with great surety that living principle promises to strengthen us individually in our marriage, in our families, in our communities and places of work.

A Changing Life

                     A Changing Life


What has instant communication via email, texting and social network website done to societies all over the world? What-ever it has done, there is no doubt that it has done, there is no doubt that it has radically changed them. These changes are unlike the current cult of celebrity. It seems that what teenagers most want to be famous.

               Instant messages and profiles on network sites such as facebook and twitter are an alternative way of being recognized and noticed. "Hi! This is me"! They say, 'notice me, and be my friend!. In addition, World news headlines, sports result and weather report can all be texted to your mobile phone. Some office workers are spending 40% of their working on mobile phone. 

       It seems society is in grip of informative overload. This means the concept of seduce is disappearing. For many young people the prospect of being alone without constant electronic communication is a frightening one. 
        That many young people prefer to chat with online "Friend" whom they have never met and never will rather than be with real friends, their families or their own company is also a frightening prospect. 

       Concentrating and focus are lost and tasks are carried out merely in "performing bytes". Because of the speed with which texts are written and sent emails cause misunderstandings and pain, not just among friends, but sometimes at the highest levels of government. There have been national "RUA TXT POET" competitions which have been produced inventive and witty responses. 
    
             Now recently a murderer sent a text from his victim's phone pretending to be her after her death and was caught by the mismatch of their texting style.Handwriting tells us a great deal about the writer's character and mood. What can you tell about someone whose message is printed on a screen in uniform letters? We're certainly in the middle of a technological revolution. But as with all revolutions, only time will tell where it is leading.

Importance of 3D Printing

              Importance of 3D printing 

     Holding your 'suspension of disbelief' for a little longer, a pair of 3D glasses can make your movie watching experience extraordinary. Consider watching Kong - Skull Island in 3D; believe me you will find yourself on the edge of the chair by the time this giant ape appears on the screen. You would see its brooding eyes staring directly into your face.

     I know there is nothing new  about these multicoloured box-like glasses. We all have tried them; they don't fascinate  us anymore! So, what's new then?
     3D printing is the new craze. When techies are going gaga over 3D printed  cars, sculptures and miniatures, doctors and biologists are showing interest in printing living hearts, kidneys and brains. Now, this sounds exciting - and creepy!

      This innovation means taking medical treatment to a whole new level. This promises a new kidney to a teenage girl who visits hospital twice a week for dialysis; a heart to a middle-aged man
who is sick and tired of cardio workouts, regular check-ups and pills; or maybe a brain to an old woman who desperately wants to cherish her memories lost to Alzheimer's disease.

     As I am writing this on June 14, I won't bash my country. In fact, this is the right tune to talk about the advancements we have made in the field of medicine. Sarosh Madhani, a medical student at Aga Khan University, recently proposed the idea of 3D printing a live brain tissue at a health symposium.How amazing is that! For him, Grey 's Anatomy, an American TV show, became a source of inspiration.When Dr Yang- a character in the show mentioned that she wanted to print a living heart, like so many other young doctors, Saros began to think about it.

          Initially, 3D technology was used to create medical equipment using silicon or collagen as ink. Then, medical students were introduced to 3D models of organs to understand human, anatomy. After that, researchers started to look into using stem cells to create living organs -just like the ones found in our body!
      Scientists around the world are already busy growing ears, bones and muscles in their - petri dishes.Poor rats and monkeys have always been,
easy subjects for the scientists; millions of rats undergo surgery for research purposes - don't we hate these 'nasty' creatures? All 3D printed organs are first implanted into tlieir bodies; scientists are happy that these creatures continue to live for several months.

     "Almost every brain disease could be treated if we are able to print brain tissues," Sarosh adds. Every day, thousands of people are injured  in road accidents.Even a little damage to their nerves can have long-term effects on their body. People end up losing control  over their facial muscles or their limbs; for such people, life becomes extremely painful.We know that bioprinting will revolutionizes medical treatments and that scientists are already using sophisticated laboratory machines
to print organ tissues, but we will have to wait. "Right now, research on bioprinting is in its early stages; ethical issues will have to be dealt before technology could be put to use here," Sarosh explains.

        No matter how far-fetched and bizarre 3D printing sounds, it is real and scientists around the world are taking it seriously. As an aspiring neurosurgeon, Sarosh truly believes in the power of 3D technology and thinks we can make
it possible in Pakistan as well. Moral restrictions and lack of funds would surely come in their way, but in the end, everything would come down to saving lives.

Role of Gilgit in Pak Economy

       ROLE OF GILGIT IN PAK ECONOMY

Gilgit is situated at the north of Pakistan. It is the hometown of beauty, various cultures and numerous languages. Gilgit region has been given many names, like Jewel of Pakistan, Asia’s wonderland and Roof of the world. It is considered to be paradise when it comes to explaining the beauty of this region. 

       Strategically speaking, Gilgit is one of the most important regions of Pakistan as it 
borders the territory of Azad Kashmir to the south, the Province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to the west, the Wakhan Corridor of Afghanistan to the north, China to the east and northeast and the Jammu and Kashmir state of India to 
the southeast. It is only 15 km away from Central Asia. 

However, despite the efforts of the local government of Gilgit-Baltistan to officially become a part of Pakistan as its 5th Province, the Pakistani Government has put in little or no efforts to declare this region Pakistan’s official Province. Gilgit play a vital role in economy of
Pakistan as its mountains are full of minerals and precious stones. These are the main source of economy but unfortunately Pakistan cannot get benefit as much as it should. K2 is the second-highest mountain on Earth. It is located in the Karakoram segment of the Himalayan range, on the border between the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan and the
Taxkorgan of Xinjiang, China.  


                                However, those who climb K2 acquire entry via Pakistan as the Chinese side is inaccessible. These mountains, historical places (Gilgit Bridge is just above the river of Gilgit and is the largest bridge on a river in the continent of Asia. Kargah Buddhar), and natural beauty attract the tourist and increase the economy of Pakistan. 

According to a statistical report by Pakistan Association of Tourism, on average more than 20 thousand tourists visited Gilgit Baltistan before 9/11. According to a rough estimation, a single tourist used to spend 3 thousand dollars which roughly makes one fifty thousand PKR as that time the currency value was 50 PKR, therefore it would be a total amount of 3 million PKR, this is about the casual visits. As for as mountaineers are concerned, they spend almost 8 thousand dollars, which is doubled accordingly.

 Wild animals are also found in Gilgit and to get permission to hunt this animal tourists submit a large amount of money to the government. Dry fruits are available in large scale so dry fruits are exported from this area. 

      Glaciers of Karakoram are source of fresh water which irrigate the arid downstream areas of Pakistan through Indus river. Gilgit play a significant role in the economy of Pakistan through tourism (due to its beauty and K2
the second highest mountain), minerals, precious stones and exports of fresh and dry fruit as well as the trade route between Pakistan and China. A lot of good
silk is available in the area at extremely inexpensive rate
.
