Brief Escape

At the eve of American Independence Day a face book friend of mine living happily with her husband in Minessota had complained that firecrackers had made her dog run away from home, the dog was found afterwards when someone posted information about him on internet. Now dog psychology in Pakistan and USA is based upon loyalty to his master, a Pakistani dog even dogs in USA and elsewhere at the time of crisis stay and help their masters, Susan's dog while escaping from home at the time that loud explosions of firecrackers were all around, has indicated a new trend in dog's psychology in USA, her dog has become suddenly important because of his un dogly behavior.

Many friends are asking about delay in renewal of my contract with FATA Disaster Management Authority Peshawar which was ended on 31st of December 2013, some new trends in Pakistan are largely responsible for that delay, I am more then willing to continue as Monitoring Officer and as usual help my country fellows at the time of crisis, and all concerned shall rest assure that new trend like Susan's dog's behavior has not made me escape from FDMA I am still loyal to the Organization and patiently waiting for renewal of my contract from the last six months, and do have a copy of notice as proof regarding me and my other 58 colleagues contract which indicates end of it.

Roads in Kohat need repair

Kohat 6-4-2014 

Jarvanda road Kohat has become full of broken patches amid heavy rainfall, road near old Sadar police station was also damaged amid heavy rainfall previously; Kohat Bannu road till Jerma Bridge also contains broken patches on it in abundance. Most affected community is public transport vehicle drivers whom are round the clock moving on these roads while their vehicles get damaged, a public transport driver laments that cost of repair increases from the income which he gets as public transport driver, some of the drivers are working for their public transport vehicle owners on daily wages, their plight becomes horrible when the vehicle gets damaged and sometimes they have to pay for repair for their daily wages.
Dr. Khalid resident of Sheffield County in London and resident of Kohat once moving on the road had told this scribe that to save the kidneys roads shall be carpeted and jerk free. He says that slight jerks on road are more damaging for kidneys and shall not be there. Damaged roads are hazardous not only for vehicle owners but for the passengers too whom are mostly from general public.
Road damage amid heavy rainfall reflect poor construction of the road, an engineer says due to heavy commission paid by contractors as bribe little money remains for road construction, some of the roads were only constructed on papers, others are of the view that lack of expertise in road construction can also be the reason behind poor construction of roads, some of the newly constructed roads evaporate amid heavy rainfall like make up vanishes away from face when water fells on it. Road constructed by Turkish firms and even roads constructed inside Punjab by local contractors are better than roads in KPK, Murree Islamabad road is the best example of road engineering in Pakistan.
Experts are of the view that factors leading to poor road construction in KP shall be removed to have better roads in this province.

Drought in Thar causes deaths of children(updates)

What is happening in Thar area of Sindh Pakistan is outcome of natural disaster known as drought, shortage of rainfall for long period of time has caused death and devastation there, being a realistic person I do not expect from newly independent Pakistan having 66 years of age and home of thousands of tribes and clans with extremely low literacy ratio, that its people will be able to develop a first rate social security system like Great Britain, USA or Saudi Arabia where each unemployed person gets handsome unemployment allowance from government, in Saudi Arab each person has been paid handsome allowance soon after his birth.

Inter tribal and inter regional jealousies and biases coupled with large scale ignorance prevents our newly born state from being a welfare state, more the 121 children in Thar are now dead their deaths were caused by drought largely responsible for creating conducive conditions for their deaths, aid agencies working there are trying hard to save the drought hit people of Thar, media men there are reporting corrupt practices in distribution of aid there and some people are demanding distribution of aid through Pakistan Armed Forces so it can reach to the drought hit people of Thar.
Large scale displacements are also reported in media from Thar which has also become concern of UNHCR too, probably they will also start their operations there soon.  The magnitude of disaster is quite big and requires effective response from international community too.

Number of dead children hit by drought in Thar area of Sindh Pakistan has been increased to 142 now, media reports reflect that aid goods have been reached to Mithi capital city of Thar but distribution is a problem, due to remoteness of Thar's villages in desert people are still stuck in difficult situation there.

With the demise of two more children in hospital at Mithi Thar, number of dead children has been raised to 144, according to a private TV channel broadcast Pakistan Army has reached there to help drought hit people of Tharparker Sindh, people in remote villages of drought hit Thar are still in difficult situation there.
