A country allegedly and perpetually at the edge of chaos. A nation shrouded in darkness: thanks largely to power cuts, toxic religion, feudal politics, a corporate military and the ever present threat of violence. A state teetering on economic collapse, political fragmentation and imminent breakdown. Is there anything to love about Pakistan? We think there is.

1. The People

They have endured everything. From Biblical floods and massive earth­quakes, military dictators and kleptomaniacs; mad Mullahs, terrorism, drone attacks and suicide bombers; ethnic feuds, gang violence and target killings; stagflation, austerity and food riots; to the humiliation of being described as a ‘failed state’ and being both ‘loved’ and bullied by the US, often simultaneously. And yet their resolve remains undiminished, their hospitality unparalleled, and their determination to overcome bedlam and turmoil unwavering. It’s time we recognised the courage and indefatigable passion of Pakistan’s people.

2. Poetry

There isn’t much that can send a heart racing than a few choice verses of the best Urdu poetry. At around 66 per cent, illiteracy rates in Pakistan may be among the highest in the world, but tap a peasant-farmer on the shoulder and ask him about his favourite poet and you’ll be lucky to escape before having heard an entire divan, or collection from one of the Urdu canons of Mirza Ghalib, Mir Taqi Mir, Khwaja Mir Dard and more. We love Urdu poetry: all the way from the first Urdu poet, Amir Khusro, to countless grandmasters down the ages, right up to Iqbal and Faiz Ahmad Faiz. How­ever, we must also admit that our knees get a bit wobbly when we hear Bullah Shah, and other Sufi poets, in Punjabi. But you don’t have to take our word for it; or feel sorry for yourself if you are not an Urdu speaker. Listen to ghazal and qawwali singers, artists who popularise and keep the tradition alive, such as Noorjehan, Mehdi Hassan, Farida Khanum, the Sabri Brothers and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and discover the magical beauty of Urdu and Panjabi poetry yourself.

3. Classical novels

When the iPhone runs out of juice or when iTunes freezes, we turn to novels from Urdu’s classical age. From the accounts of Delhi gripped by a plague in Deputy Nazir Ahmed’s Toba tun nasuh to the adventures of a speck of dust by Abdul Halim Sharar, the beauty of Urdu prose surely cannot be matched. We particularly love the novels of Deputy Nazir Ahmed, Maulana Rashid-ul-Khairi, Mirza Hadi Ruswa, Qazi Abdul Gaffar, Aziz Ahmad, Abdul Halim Sharar; and the exponents of Urdu literature claimed by people on the other side of border: Premchand, Krishan Chander and Ismat Chughtai.

4. Ingenuity

The ingenuity and ‘can-do’ attitude of Pakistan’s people is a marvel to behold. Pakistanis can design and build anything. Whether you want a nuclear device or a non-stick frying-pan, there will always be a road-side or pavement workshop ready to deliver your order. It will all happen while-u-wait, by a technician who won’t have had more than a few years of primary schooling, and all for one-tenth of its ‘normal’ price. As far as Pakistan’s concerned, Dr Who’s Tardis is not a work of fiction. The nation’s transport planners know exactly how to shoehorn impossible numbers of people into the tiniest spaces. A humble scooter can be turned into a transport system for the extended family; a rickshaw for two can easily squeeze a dozen pas­sengers — sitting atop handle bars, on the driver’s lap, or dangling from the vehicle’s sides. Sadly the ingenuity trait also seems to be shared by Pakistan’s criminal underworld, and by its political classes who continue to break records for diversity in fraudulent methods. Pakistan frequently finds itself in top-ten lists for political corruption. Pakistanis like to joke that the only reason their country isn’t right there at the top is probably because its poli­ticians managed to bribe the eventual ‘winner’.

5. Young talent

We celebrate the amazing young men and women who’ve transformed — and are transforming — Pakistan’s cultural landscape, and in particular the country’s phenomenal movie scene. Inspirational film directors include the Oscar-winning Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, honoured for her 2012 documen­tary film Saving Face about the lives and hopes of women who suffer acid attacks. Then there’s Shoaib Mansoor, director of the hard-hitting Bol (Speak) from 2011 in which a young woman on death row narrates her tragic life story before she goes to the gallows; and who also directed Khuda Kay Liya in 2007 (For God’s Sake), which explores the phenomenon of Islamist activism among the country’s secular elite. No list would be com­plete without a mention for Hasan Zaidi, founder of the Karachi Interna­tional Film Festival who directed Raat Chali Hai Jhoom Ke (The Long Night) in 2000, which has one of the most delicious femmes fatales you have ever seen. We also applaud the nation’s fashion designers; the producers, writers, and actors in comedies and TV plays; a legion of younger musicians and singers; and not forgetting the thousands of young journalists and bloggers who put their lives on the line to expose corruption.

6. Paklish

‘We find there is a very great desire among Pakistani people to become acquainted with the peculiarities of the English language and they have great curiosity regarding it’. ‘Be therefore as it may therefore be’ many Pakistanis speak English. We ‘have, indeed, occasion to express our sincere and heart­felt gratitude’ for preserving ‘the same’ in fossilised late Victorian idiom. Public transport is ‘conveyance’, career is ‘carrier’, a bathroom is ‘latrine’, a lounge is a ‘drawing room’, and a range of other examples ‘can be had’ from local newspapers and books. Even internationally published authors slip into Paklish. We plead guilty too as an odd ‘nefarious plot’ or a ‘Kara­chite’ may have inadvertently crept into this issue of Critical Muslim. As ‘your obedient servants’ we seek your forgiveness. ‘Thank you, please’.

7. Sweets

It’s official: Pakistan is the world capital for people with a sweet tooth. Travelling in a nation of hospitality-conscious sweet-lovers means it is near-impossible to go anywhere in Pakistan without being greeted with a glass of a red-coloured sugary-drink called ‘Rooh Afza’, served on a tray next to a plate of some choice mithai, or ‘sweetmeats’ in Paklish. The sticky and intensely sugary barfis and cham-chams once exclusive to Lahore or Multan are now of course a global phenomenon, but in our humble opinion nothing beats the taste of a crisp jalebi made fresh in front of your eyes. Indeed, nothing beats mithai unless you happen to have a health condition in which sugar could be fatal. Sadly, that includes most of Pakistan where diabetes is virtually a national emergency. We fear that this may put the sweet-meat vendors out of business, unless they embrace ‘modernity’ and start using artificial sweeteners.

8. Mountains and Mangoes

Switzerland has the Alps; Peru is blessed with the Andes, but Pakistan, yes Pakistan, scorns these bumps from a great height, for three of the world’s highest ranges meet in its territory — the Himalayas, the Karakorams, and the Hindu Kush. When it comes to mountains, Pakistan looks down its nose at the rest of the world, and its nose is as high as K2. Pakistani mangoes, ‘the king of fruit’, are just as colossal in taste and juiciness.

9. Missiles

Defence is the one sector of Pakistan’s economy that forever seems to boom, boom, boom. No matter which government of whichever party is in power; no matter if the president is a general, or an elected politician, he will have no problem sucking funds out of health and education and firing it in the direction of the bomb-making Pakistan Ordnance Factory. Pakistan it seems has a missile for every day of the year. Many are appropriately named after Islam’s warrior heroes, the Ghauri, Shaheen, the Ghaznavi. They are also public property, standing phallic and shining at the centres of roundabouts, squares, and even, sadly, universities. Now all the nation needs is to find someone they can be thrown at.

10. ‘Load-shedding’

The Paklish for power cuts is an apt metaphor for the efficient corruption of politicians and energy providers as they fill their pockets and secure their families’ right to rule. What a great display of familial provision as the rest of the country sweats in the dark, patients die in hospitals, the factories come to a grinding halt, and productivity takes a nose dive. We love to get those candles out and wave our fans frantically in the 40 degrees of heat. Load-shedding is also preparing Pakistan for the future — when the oil runs out and lights throughout the planet go off, Pakistan will be way ahead and well prepared to cope.

Fashion trend in Pakistan….

Pakistan is a third world country economically its not that much established that we can afford fashion as our daily life. But I must say that No department of life as be it economic, cultural, religious or recreational has been free from the effect of this great transformation in progress. Every body wants to follow the latest trends of the new era.

It’s in human nature that he always wants change in life, like in basic change in our clothing’s. We may do whatever makes us happy. even if we talk about Pakistan, we come to know that Pakistan has been change a lot, From the independence day of August 14, 1947 up to date, Pakistan’s has been a society in transition. The society of Pakistan is dynamic and therefore ever-changing, and its patterns are changing transforming from time to time.

So if want to move with today’s world we have to follow the fashion,Becaue its today’s need if we don’t follow that people think we r dumb we know nothing about fashion and we cant move in society.

Fashion has gone through changes in this century and especially in women’s fashion, in the dressing and adorning of the hair, became equally complex and changing. Fashion, by definition, changes constantly its almost standing alone in comparison with other walks of life as long as change is concerned. But it is actually we who are responsible for changes in fashion as it is rightly said that “Things don’t change, we change”. Young People enjoy the diversity and change in their looks and outfits and they are playing key role to fashion industry .Young boys and girls are always in craze to look smart and up to date. It is also in human nature to look smart and be appreciated by the social circle of one’s own.

In Pakistan there is three types of people
1. Who follow fashion trends blindly
2. Who follow fashion with there need
3. Who don’t follow any trend at all

But there is a very little room for the first ones, because most of the fashions trends are against Islam. But now I love to share with you this news that some of the famous fashion designers take the Muslim fashion clothing very seriously and they worked a lot in development of Muslim fashion designing. Many famous designers designed Muslim fashion cloths are now easily available on the online shops. One can buy it very easily online or at outlets where they are available with huge discount.

Pakistan, Lahore is a center of all types of Muslim fashion. The major clothing markets offer the latest trends and styles of clothing articles regardless of the origin.

However, only a few years ago buying ready-made stylish abayas in Lahore was not as easy, as only the plain and classic ones were largely available. Today there are retail stores for trendy abayas and hijabs open all around the fashion districts of Pakistan

Muslim Fashion Clothes Fashion entrepreneurs who understood the need for modern fashion Islamic clothing started launching stylish boutiques that offer these garments in an assortment of colours, styles and designs even Pakistani government is souporting the fashion industry in Paistan nowThe Federal Minister, Malik Naeem Khan’s directive for raising the exports of finished goods three-fold within a period of three and half years is highly commendable in principle and is one of the targets required for reducing the balanced of payment deficit in order to put the economy on a sound track.

There is no denying the fact that the exports of value-added products not only accelerate the rate of foreign exchange inflow but help strengthen the local industrial infrastructure also so that they could be able to compete in the world markets.

But at the end I want you to decide that what is good and what is bad for us????

I acknowledge that enjoyment is the part of the life and life becomes so colorless without this, but there are several means of enjoyment. Enjoyment should be productive, free from prejudices, lies and all kind of cheatings. Now we should be care about the norms and values of the society and we should work together for the sake of these……

How to Get Your U.S. Student Visa

Following are some guidelines to help make your student visa application process smooth and successful.

Getting your visa to study in the United States takes time but can be a surprisingly easy procedure. It is well worth the effort. In many countries, the number of student visas issued by the United States has grown significantly in the last year.

While the application process for an international student or exchange visitor visa can be confusing, hundreds of thousands of students are able to meet the requirements for a visa each year. Last year, 534,298 F-1 student visas were issued!

After a college, university, or English language school has accepted you for admission to full-time study, the school will send you a document called an I-20 form, which is the application for an F-1 visa.

If you will be an Exchange Visitor, the organization or U.S. Government agency that is sponsoring you will send you a DS-2019 form, which is the application for a J-1 visa.

First, your school or university will send you a form confirming that you have been accepted at an institution authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization Service (USCIS) to enroll non-immigrant students (the I-20 for an F-1 visa or the DS-2019 for a J-1 visa. You will read and sign this form.)

Be careful to make sure that the name and spelling on your passport is exactly the same as the name and spelling on your application for acceptance to the school and that the school has entered your name as it appears on your passport on the I-20 or DS-2019 Form.

All applicants’ names have to be submitted for a security clearance. Citizens of some countries and students who will study certain subjects at a university have to undergo additional screenings that takes several additional weeks of processing. Again, it is crucial that you allocate plenty of time for the visa application process.

Second, you will need to make an appointment for a visa interview and to pay some required fees. Under a revision in the regulations, Student Visas can be issued up to 120 days before the date on your form I-20. Exchange Visitor Visas can be issued anytime before the date on the DS-2019. You should apply as early as possible for your visa.

Each U.S. Embassy has a website providing instructions on how to make an appointment for a visa interview and other information on the visa application process. The website for the Embassy in your country can be located at:

The website can also tell you the expected wait time for a visa in your country. International student visa applicants should receive priority by the Embassy or Consulate so if your program of study will begin soon, be sure to explain this when applying for your visa.

You may wish to visit or contact the nearest U.S. Department of State-affiliated EducationUSA advising center office in your country. They are located throughout the world and listed at The staff at these centers will be able to explain where to pay the visa fees and how to schedule your interview.

There is a US$200 fee, which supports the cost of the computer system used to record your stay in the United States (SEVIS). You can pay this fee with a credit card that is valid internationally. Go to to pay the fee and make sure you print a copy of your receipt. You must pay the SEVIS fee at least three days before the date of your visa interview. Bring a copy of your receipt to your visa interview

You will also need to pay an additional US$160 for the visa application fee in your country at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate or at a bank that the Embassy designates. Specific information on where to pay the visa application fee can be found at the web site of the U.S. Embassy in your country.


The U.S. Student Visa process is made easy with this multi language DVD and e-book. This package provides easy, step-by-step, instructions that break down the visa application process so you can better understand. You will be prepared with this package!

Third, the United States is using a new non-immigrant visa application form, DS-160 that should be completed on line. This form replaces all of the other forms. Instructions for completing the on line form and links to the form can be found at The website of the United States Embassy or Consulate in your country can be found at, go to the section on Visas, and read about the correct procedure currently in place for Non-immigrant visas.

Complete the DS-160 form on line completely. Again, remember to use the exact same order and spelling of your names as they are found in your passport. Then you will print them out and bring them to the Embassy when you go for your your visa interview.

Photo – You will upload your photo while completing the online Form DS-160. Your photo must be in the format explained in the Photograph Requirements: If the upload of your photo fails, you must bring the photo with you when you go for your interview.

Fourth, prepare for your visa interview. It is extremely crucial that you apply for your visa well in advance of the date your studies begin. If possible, apply three months before you plan to travel to the USA. This will give you extra time if there are delays at the embassy, or if you wish to appeal a decision in the event of a denial.

What you wear is important. Consider the interview a formal event. Business attire is appropriate. First impressions can be crucial, since there will be little time to speak with the officer, who will often have only a few minutes to conduct the interview and make a decision.

Be prepared to give your information quickly and completely. If you are unable to answer the questions in English, and the visa officer does not speak your language, you can ask for an interpreter. Speaking English is not a requirement for a student visa. In fact, thousands of students come to the United States each year to learn how to speak English.

The visa officer needs to know your specific objectives, both academic or professional, for studying in the United States. Be prepared to explain why it is better to study your specific field in the United States than to study at home. Be ready to say exactly what you will study and for what career your U.S. studies will prepare you. Calmly state your education plans concisely and clearly.

If you are going to the USA to learn English and then earn a degree, be able to explain your complete program of study. Remember, it is not enough to just say, “It is better to study in the United States.” Give valid reasons why it is better for you. Visa officers like to hear honest, direct responses to questions. They generally react poorly to applicants who give vague answers, memorize a speech, or make overly solicitous comments about how great and wonderful the United States is.

You should also be able to explain in detail why you chose to study at a specific school and be able to give information about that school and where you will live (dormitory, host family or apartment).

If you will return home to complete university studies after studying English in the United States, bring proof of your student status in your country. A letter from a university professor supporting your study plan can be helpful. Young people around the world are often unsure of their plans. However, in the visa interview it is best to give definite answers. If you seem to be unsure about what you will be doing, the visa officer may believe that you are really going to the United States for reasons other than education.

Grades do make a difference. If your marks are below average, be ready to provide explanation on how you are going to succeed in the United States. A letter from a school director or teacher, or from your U.S. admitting school stating that the proposed program of study in the United States makes sense and explaining your good prospects for success can be helpful. If there were special circumstances (such as a death or illness in the immediate family) that contributed to the poor grades, have the school explain those special circumstances.

The U.S. Department of State (DOS) has implemented an online tool that nonimmigrant and immigrant visa applicants can use to check the status of their application:



You must have adequate, demonstrable financial support to live and study in the United States. Visa applications are generally stronger if the financial support comes from family, employers, or other institutional sponsors located in the home country.

If your parents will pay for your education, be ready to document how your family gets its income. Bring a letter from your parents’ employers stating what they do, how long they have worked at those organizations, and how much they earn.

When visa officers see information that is contradictory or does not make sense, they do not grant visas. If your family can only show enough income to support you in the United States, the officer will become suspicious.

Large sums of money in bank accounts may not be sufficient proof of financial support. When providing information about your bank accounts, ask someone at your bank for a letter that states how long the account has existed, and what the average balance in the account has been. That should convince the visa officer that you and your family have a long and stable history of business at the bank.

“Intent to Return”

Most student and exchange visitor visa applications are approved. The most common reason for a student or exchange visitor application to be denied is that the person applying for the visa has not proven to the Visa Officer that they will return to their country when they complete their studies in the U.S.A. This rule is called Section 214.b.

To determine your “intent to return” home, the visa officer will ask you a series of questions about your connections to your home country and about your study plans. You will have to demonstrate to the officer that your family has the ability to pay for the first year of your proposed stay in the United States and that you have realistic plans to finance the remainder of your education.

You must have all of the required forms with you including your I-20 or DS-2019 and the SEVIS payment receipt. You should bring any financial documents to demonstrate how you will pay for your education and any documents that might help demonstrate why you will return to your country. Some examples of such documents are previous passports demonstrating travel abroad, bank or salary statements, family documents or student records.

If all else fails…

If you are denied a visa there may be something you can do to reverse the denial. You may appeal the decision. In most cases, you will need to provide additional documentation that was not presented with the initial application. In some cases, a visa officer may request additional documents like proof of employment, or ownership of a home or business. You should respond with the information requested.

A fax or email from your U.S. school to the embassy or consulate in your city containing details about your qualifications, and requesting reconsideration, can be helpful in pursuing a successful appeal. Faxes should be addressed to the Chief of Nonimmigrant Visas at the Consular post in question. Fax and telephone numbers are available on the Department of State website at

Once a visa is approved, you should receive your visa within a few days.

What Meets the Expectations of the Connoisseur Coffee Drinker?

Purchasing a top quality coffee is not as easy as it may seem. There are plenty of coffee outlets online that offer a grand selection of this product, but it doesn’t mean that it truly is a selection of the finest coffee in the world.

The best coffee comes down to three important factors: the ingredients it is made with, how it is harvested for the market, and how it is brewed.

The ingredients it is made of:

It all begins with the very best in coffee beans. Some countries are renowned for their development of the coffee beans, and each of them has the ability to produce a very unique cup of coffee that sets them apart from the rest.

Beyond the coffee bean:

Connoisseurs of this amazing beverage have discovered that when extra enhancing ingredients are added in the production of the coffee, it may have this beverage to new heights in both pleasure and aroma. Not every additional ingredient has the ability to do this, but there is one that is rocking the world of coffee lovers around the world and that is the organic ganoderma.


Using resources from the earth as nature intended us to is the only way we can be sure that we are getting all of the benefits that resource is comprised of. It makes sense for coffee connoisseurs who insist on the best to then also insist on it being organic.


This is one of the most unique mushrooms in the world that only grows on certain trees throughout the tropical regions of Asia. Coffee makers have discovered the wealth of benefits that the ganoderma possesses and have used it in their exquisite brands of coffee. Like any quality ingredient it comes down to choosing only the best of the Ganoderma which is to be found in the Wuyi Mountains in the region of China’s Fuzhou. To the Chinese the ganoderma lucidum means “spiritual potency”, while to the Japanese it means “king of herbs.”

Harvesting for the market:

The proper harvesting of the beans and these extra ingredients like the ganoderma is extremely important. For example, plastic bag harvesting of the ganoderma lucidium renders it much less potent.

Bringing it to market:

There are many ways that the coffee lover can purchase their coffee. They have choices of buying it from their local stores, going to coffee shops or even buying online. Each have their advantages but also some restrictions. One of the truly better methods of purchasing coffee that can be counted as best of the best is through online buying. This method of purchasing has many more benefits to it when compared to others. The true coffee connoisseur not only develops a talent for knowing the best coffees but adapts the ability for knowing who is capable of providing this and which coffee providers have made the best choices in their coffee offerings.

SAM Gano

If you want the finest blends of coffee that goes a step above the expectations of the coffee connoisseur then seeking out those that contain Ganoderma is the best choice.

Tips for Choosing Perfact Pet You

If you are planning to extend your family by getting pets at home, you need to think thoroughly before owning one. They require different amount of attention, grooming, feeding, cost, care, housing, training, socialization and medical needs. Just like humans, they also need proper nurturing and safekeeping. What type of owner will you be? Are you a beginner who is planning to own a pet for the first time? Or are you a previous owner who lost your old and is now looking for a new one? It would be easier for you if you have a previous experience but for first timers, you need to understand your reasons because owning a pet is a big responsibility and not a form of childish play. You also need to know if you are already prepared to own a pet considering your personality, lifestyle, financial resources, home environment, health condition and psychological well-being.

Decide what kind of pet to consider. For sure you already have choices in mind as to what kind of pet you might own. Study about their breeds or species, physical features, natural habitat, social and health needs. You also try visiting shops to know what pets will match your preferences or ask friends who are also pet owners for recommendations. Regardless of size, pets can be dangerous for you and to other people if not well taken care of. That is why it is important for owners to know every detail concerning them. Before committing, members of your household must be willing to provide a good home for the animal.

Look for a pet that matches your lifestyle. They can also become great buddies. Dogs are sociable creatures. Cats are attention seekers. Birds are fascinating animals. Fishes are magnificent. Rabbits and hamsters are adorable. Look into your home. Do you have enough space for your pet? Will it be for indoor or outdoor? Pets such as dogs and cats may not do well in cramped spaces. What type of person are you – interactive to animals or not fond of physical contact to them? Some pets also need to socialize. Are you physically healthy to cuddle with pets? Do you have allergies with fur? Check your medical condition to know what type of pets will suit for you. Are you home most of the time? Or do you need a pet sitter to look after your pet? Growing pets need more attention. Do you have enough financial resources? Pets need grooming and medical assistance. You should consider these factors before continuing your plan on getting a pet.

Examine if you will be able to sustain your pet’s needs. After taking into consideration those factors, decide if you will pursue your plan. Did I meet the qualifications of being a owner? Am I capable of taking full responsibility over my pet? Will I be able to sustain my pet’s needs? If your answers are all yes, then you can go ahead and get your pets now.


Does Being a Bit of a Jerk Help Football Coaches Win?

With football season upon us I decided to look into it a little further. First I checked to see who coached the teams that won all the BCS and college football playoff championships. That list contained 12 coaches and the 17 most recent champions. I did an informal study contacting coaches and players that either coached with or played for these 12 coaches and asked them to rate from 1 to 10 the level of jerk in them with 10 being highest.

I went in expecting a majority to come in with high averages, but what surprised me was that only one of the 12 came in below an average rating of 5. Not a single one of the remaining eleven coaches on the list came in below an 8.25 rating and the majority rated at or over 9. Although this is far from a comprehensive study these numbers seem to back up the opinions of the coaches I had the original conversation with.

Interestingly, neither of the two coaches who won 7 of the 17 championships between them (covered here) were among the top 3 highest scores in these ratings. So perhaps having too much jerk in you can turn things the other way?

I’m sure there is convincing data to be found arguing that having a good amount of jerk in you is not beneficial, but it seems like for every Joe Paterno (perceived nice guy) there are a lot more John McKays and Paul Bear Bryants to be found. Similarly, in the NFL there appear to be contradictions like perceived nice guys head coaches Marv Levy, Bill Walsh and Dick Vermeil, but without research perhaps there was more jerk in them than we publicly perceived? Sometimes jerk’s are like wolves in sheep’s clothing.

As one of the all-time biggest pacifists, John Lennon, said “You have to be a bastard to make it, and that’s a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth.” As I surmised earlier, perhaps being too much of a jerk could turn things against your success as a football coach, but if Lennon was right, more is better for a music act.
