Fountain of Hindus

Dwellers of two hundred houses in Dolay kalay a remote area of Lachi village of Kohat situated on Kohat Bannu road are deprived of clean drinking water since long, a dweller of Dolay Kalay says our women, children and young people do walk one kilometer to fetch some drinking water from fountain situated in a stream, the fountain emits small quantity of clean water and it takes good period of time to fill a pitcher from it, due to large number of people fountain in one day not everybody can get water from it. the fountain is centuries old and is known as Hinduano China “Fountain for Hindus”, the other source of water is near the hill at a distance of one and a half kilometer from Dolay Kalay village where a water pool is utilized by both animals and people for drinking water.
Water inside the Dolay Kalay village is very deep down below the earth and digging of so deep wells are financially not viable for the low income dwellers of the said area. People of the village have contributed money to dig a well inside the village with the help of a sensitive man good in ascertaining existence of water with his stick, so far the well dug there is not functional might need more digging deep to reach water in it. In today’s world in which people are buying residential plots on Mars Dolay Kalay dwellers are still deprived of clean drinking water facility while living on planet earth.

Sports man spirit

Politics and cricket both are dependent on good pitch, weather conditions and fitness, abilities and capabilities of players, right and well informed decision making ability of team captain and crowd support.
The difference between cricket and politics is that cricket match is played between two teams, while in politics many teams can participate in elections and in post election activities.
Like cricketers some politicians also have the virtue of ‘sports man spirit’, if their team lose elections they accept the polling results and do wait for their turn till next elections. All such politicians are widely respected in society because of their strict adherence to rules of the game.
Some intolerant cricketers when declared out by empire often hit the wickets with bat, extremely intolerant ones attack empire or the bowler responsible for sending them back to pavilion, some intolerant bowlers also resort to body line bowling to hit bats man of rival cricket team, such cricketers are often banned from international and national cricket and thus they lose their status as cricketer.
Cricket is a clean game, and game of virtuous, tolerant and truthful men and women because of strict observance of game rules at international and national level. In Olden times LBW decisions in cricket and allegations of rigging in election were sort of mysteries but now with advent of video cameras both LBW decisions of cricket match empire and rigging allegations can be easily confirmed and reconfirmed by watching videos of both practices.
Politicians as compare to cricketers often lack physical fitness in third world countries, due to absence of any selection criteria and where political institutions are not so established. Cricketers and politicians are purely professional beings in developed countries. While in developing countries people of both these categories are immature and often lack expertise.
To be a member of parliament one needs qualities of a test cricketer, inside the parliament session situation like test match exists often. Both government and opposition members try to score high inside the parliament in terms of necessary legislation.
In countries like great Britain and other developed countries where virtues of cricketers are also part of their society in general domain of politics is also quite clean and professionals they opt for it or when asked to take a responsibility accepts it. It is sports man spirit which can keep cricket and politics clean which seems lacking here in Pakistan and many other developing countries too.

Fresh displacements

Increased number of freshly displaced families of Khyber and Orakzai Agency tribal area has been witnessed here in Kohat; militant’s attacks on check posts in Orakzai Agency and ongoing Khyber 1 military operation in Bara area of Khyber Agency have compelled tribal families to leave their homes in a hurry and to take refuge in settled areas.
Kohat, Peshawar and Hangu districts of KPK are witnessing the arrival of freshly displaced tribal families, due to their common borders with Khyber and Orakzai tribal areas. An elder in Kohat says large number of families have arrived in Kohat from tribal area of Orakzai and Khyber Agency.
Permanent refuge facility in shape of residential facilities to accommodate   displaced families has become need of the hour after each return, the returnees are compelled again to come down from tribal areas to settle areas, no permanent solution to existing violence in these areas seems feasible.
Bajure Agency returnees are comparatively living in peace though a bomb explosion caused deaths were reported by media channels earlier this week, returnees of Maidan Khyber Agency and returnees of Orakzai Agency are again in difficult situation and are coming down towards settled areas again.
Their return was facilitated by UNHCR, NRC and number of other NGO’s, trauma hit tribal displaced families are not only in need of residential facilities and food but do need medical facilities along with psychological treatment.
