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…

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

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 eme…

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

In the Memory of Martyrs of APS Peshawar

Martyrs of APS Peshawar

                  Some color less eyes
                 Some wounded bodies
                     Some torn clothes
               Some notebooks with scars
                         Scars of blood
                          Scars of tears
                        Scars of sadness
                      Scars of innocence
                         All are craying
                       All are screaming
                     What was our fault?
                     What was our fault?

                    We were the flowers
                 Flowers of your garden
                     We had to blossom
     We had to spread fragrance of happiness
            We had to give scent to new spring
                        Ah! Some cruel feet
                     Ruined us, wrecked us
                                  We........
          Unblossomed untouched flowers.....

O! My mom! My beloved mom,I had to sleep in your lap
