After rains it turns green and many water streams flow through it making some good #waterfalls. . Very few people are aware of such beauty of Tharparkar.

اڄ وري واپس پنهنجي ان دور ۾ موٽائي وئي آهيان جڏهن دنيا جي جنهنجهٽن کان آزاد پنهنجي دنيا جا مزا ماڻيندا هئاسين۔مونکي ياد آهي ته جڎهن اسڪول جو گهنڊ وڄندو هو ۽ استاد موڪل ڪندو هو اسان سڀ ڀرواري ميدان تي راند کيڏڻ ويندا هئاسون۔

مونکي ياد آهي ته ان دوران برف جا ٺهيل رنگين ڳنڍا ڪيترو شوق سان کائيندا هئاسين۔ مونکي ياد آ ته انهن ڏينهن ۾ ڪيڏو خوش هوندا هئاسين۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔


#Sindh #Pakistan still suffering from poverty, illiteracy and professional begging.(By Mehwish Abbasi)

Pakistan is one of the richest countries in Asia but the people of Pakistan are suffering from poverty. The main cause of poverty is that they are not getting their basic rights. Most of the poor people are begging in the streets of different cities of Pakistan. If their rights were given they would not beg.However, nowadays some people have adopted begging as profession/ business. Rich/influential people post beggars at different points in different areas. Mostly the beggars are children and women so that we take pity on them as per human nature. These beggars work for their lords in lieu of salary. I request/suggest the government to take a serious action and stop this business (professional begging) on the one hand, and on the other, some worthwhile steps must be taken for the rehabilitation of genuine beggars.



Water the most commercial product of century by Mehwish Abbasi 

#Water has become the most commercial products of the century. This may sound bizarre, but true. In fact, what water is to the 21st century, oil was to the 20th century.To get bucket of drinking water is a struggle for most women/girls in #Sindh #Pakistan.

In many rural areas, women/girls still have to walk a distance of about 2.5 kms to reach the source of water. They reach home carrying heavy pots, not to rest but to do other household chores of cooking, washing, cleaning, caring of children and looking after livestock. Again in the evening she has to fetch water. Thus a rural woman’s life is sheer drudgery.

Credibility of Sindhi channels and media by Mehwish Abbasi

Our #Sindhi channels have lost their credibility, I always feel ashamed and disappointed watching Sindhi channels whose priority is not Sindhi culture and rituals who have forgotten the real identification of #Sindh and Sindhis.Since last few days host of Sindhi Tv channel #KTN #AamirShah is under debate of speaking Urdu during his show #Hojamalo.

In case of Aamir Shah firstly the channel is Sindhi so the transmission must be based on Sindhi language (apart of any special transmission), secondly Aamir Shah’s Sindhi language is also not pure Sindhi, thirdly I have also noticed that Aamir has craze of speaking Urdu with audience even he also speaks Urdu with Sindhi audiences, fourthly Aamir mostly select Urdu songs to sing during his show.

Another thing other Urdu Tv channels hosts never speak Sindhi during their shows neither they play Sindhi songs nor they have any Sindhi speaking guest etc.

Our Sindhi channels must give priority to Sindhi culture and Sindhi language boycott Aamir shah and boycott such other hosts and transmissions.

We respect our national languages but if the channel is representing Sindhi culture and language then they must give priority to that.

I request all Sindhi channels and their honors to play Sindhi culture based dramas and songs kindly don’t ruin our culture by showing wrong image of Sindhis and Sindh we have good stories to play on channels we have good characters to show world and we have good examples.
