The Himalaya Range or Himalaya Mountains

Proud to be a Pakistani | The Himalaya Range or Himalaya Mountains ( literally "abode of snow"), usually called the Himalayas or Himalaya for short, is a mountain range immediately at the north of the Indian subcontinent. By extension, it is also the name of a massive mountain system that includes the Karakoram, the Hindu Kush, and other, lesser, ranges that extend out from the Pamir Knot.
Together, the Himalayan mountain system is the world's highest, and home to the world's highest peaks, the Eight-thousanders, which include Mount Everest and K2. To comprehend the enormous scale of this mountain range, consider that Aconcagua, in the Andes, at 6,962 metres (22,841 ft) is the highest peak outside Asia, whereas the Himalayan system includes over 100 mountains exceeding 7,200 m (23,600 ft). However the Alleghenian mountains, formed during the formation of Pangaea, likely rivalled or exceeded the Himalayas in height.

The Himalaya Range or Himalaya Mountains



The main Himalayan range runs west to east, from the Indus river valley to the Brahmaputra river valley, forming an arc 2,400 km (1,500 mi) long, which varies in width from 400 km (250 mi) in the western Kashmir-Xinjiang region to 150 km (93 mi) in the eastern Tibet-Arunachal Pradesh region. The range consists of three coextensive sub-ranges, with the northernmost, and highest, known as the Great or Inner Himalayas.
The Himalaya Range or Himalaya Mountains
Some of the world's major river systems arise in the Himalayas, and their combined drainage basin is home to some 3 billion people (almost half of Earth's population) in 18 countries. The Himalayas have profoundly shaped the cultures of South Asia; many Himalayan peaks are sacred in Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.
The Himalaya Range or Himalaya Mountains
Geologically, the origin of the Himalayas is the impact of the Indian tectonic plate traveling northward at 15 cm per year to impact the Eurasian continent, about 40-50 million years ago. The formation of the Himalayan arc resulted since the lighter rock of the seabeds of that time were easily uplifted into mountains. An often-cited fact used to illustrate this process is that the summit of Mount Everest is made of marine limestone

Minar-e-Pakistan

Proud to be a Pakistani | Minar-e-Pakistan is a tall monumental minaret in Iqbal Park Lahore, built in commemoration of the Lahore Resolution. The minaret reflects a blend of Mughal and modern architecture, and is constructed on the site where on March 23, 1940, seven years before the formation of Pakistan, the Muslim League passed the Pakistan Resolution (Qarardad-e-Pakistan), demanding the creation of Pakistan. This was the first official declaration to establish a separate homeland for the Muslims living in the Indian Subcontinent. Interestingly, the site is also where Nehru and the Indian National Congress declared Indian independence from Britain in 1929.
Minar-e-Pakistan


The monument attracts visitors from all over Pakistan, as well as the inhabitants of the Walled City of Lahore. The large public space around the monument is commonly used for political and public meetings, whereas Iqbal Park area is popular among kite-flyers.

With the growth of the city and location of the monument at busy intersection of Circular Road and Multan Road, air pollution from traffic-congestion is continuously damaging the marble structure which is now in need of refurbishment.
The Minar-e-Pakistan is located in the provincial capital of Punjab, Lahore
The top of the Minar-e-Pakistan has been closed to the public to deter suicides by people jumping from the top. As of 2005, at least 26 people had committed suicide by jumping from the minaret. The artificial lake around the monument is also reported to be a suicide spot.

Pakistani student attains 28 A’s in O levels

Once again a student of Beaconhouse Complex Islamabad, Syed Zohaib Asad astonished every one by acquiring 28 A’s in Cambridge ‘O’ level examination, setting a new record at international level.

Zohaib Asad became an ‘Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award Winner’ after gaining higher marks in June 2010 Cambridge ‘O’ level exams in the course ‘Human and Social Biology’.

Earlier, Ibrahim Shahid who is also student of Beaconhouse School System attained 23 A’s in O’ level exams and maintained a record. Syed Zohaib Asad has emerged as a symbol of pride for the nation through gaining such remarkable success that his teachers and fellows are feeling pride of having interaction with him.
 Zohaib first took medicine as his domain of subjects but turned to Economics and Business soon after discovering his interest and potential. “I changed my subjects in the middle of O level study period and prepared exams in the time period of six months,” he said. “I spared seven to eight hours a day for the preparation of my exams with full concentration. It is important to give quality time to the studies with entire focus on every subject,” Zohaib said.

Zohaib is eager to serve his country after studies and want to go for specialization in Economics and join Finance Ministry. He also urged the students not to strive for breaking records but serve the country with dedication.

For Zohaib, home environment plays greater role in the success of any student as he says “I am fortunate to have such parents who provided me a relaxed atmosphere to concentrate fully on my studies”.

Zohaib expressed dissatisfaction over prevailing discriminatory education system in the country and said that there must be unified curricula and equal access to educational opportunities for every child.

Students must not rely on guides, key books and guess papers as well as rote learning for preparation of exams and thoroughly comprehend the concepts as it could better develop analytical approach in them, he said.

Identifying talent or potential of the students at their teenage can help adopt career oriented studies and productive fields in a long run.

Truck art in Pakistan

Proud to be a Pakistani | Cultural Values | Truck art in Pakistan | Just like the Billboard painting performed in Pakistan, there is another indigenous form of art performed in Pakistan and it is the Truck Painting. With its all colorful floral patterns, depiction of human heroes with creative aspect ratios, calligraphy of poetic verses and driver’s words of wisdom, this form of art is truly a part of Pakistani transport tradition.

Truck art in Pakistan
Truck art in Pakistan  
Many trucks and buses in Pakistan are highly customized and decorated by their owners. These adorned vehicles are considered as moving art, or jingle art. Because of their unique decor style, these vehicles are quite distinct in layout from other trucks around the world. Each part of the vehicle is decorated differently, with variations depending on the regional style. Although the decorative process is usually very expensive, it is still practiced throughout Pakistan as well as a few other countries of South Asia and Central Asia with great zeal and aesthetic zest.In Pakistan a truck driver/owner usually pays $3,000 to $5,000 for their vehicle's external decoration. This decoration includes structural changes, paintings, calligraphy, ornamental decor and more. Mirror work on the front and back of vehicles and wooden carvings on the truck doors are commonly used. Usually, the driver or the owner takes the truck to a coach workshop soon after its purchase for this decoration. The artist embellishes each truck according to the particular tastes of the driver.
The sides of the truck depict different scenes through their adorned artwork and may include metal "decoration pieces" which draw additional attention to the vehicle. The exterior of the trucks are often adorned with poetry.
