Pakistan flexing the economic muscle

Keeping in view the recent macroeconomic trends, there is not less to say about optimistic development for the economic recovery after years’ long prevailing doomsday scenario. The Prime Minister Imran Khan’s heart was in the right place when he indicated a broad-based recovery in the days to come. The sign of this reversal can be observed in the recent reverberation in manufacturing as evinced by record cement sales, amplified demand for cars, motorbikes and white goods, resumption of the construction industry, etc. No doubt, domestic consumption is the major driving force behind the scene. It is a healthy sign that the prese

Changing face of education

We are living in post Covid 19 world. As a matter of fact, Covid 19 has laid very deep impact on every sphere of life. There is no exception to education whose face is changing faster than we think.

New ravi, new lahore, naya pakistan

The idea of a new Lahore beside Lahore is, in fact of immense importance for “Lahore’s survival” which has changed “dramatically” in the last couple of decades. Last month, the prime minister inaugurated the ceremony of a multi-trillion rupee development project, under which the Punjab government plans to develop a “most modern city” over an area of more than one 100,000 acres near Lahore. The prime minister let the people know that the modern city project was “vital to save the historical city of Lahore from environmental challenges in the wake of unplanned settlements”.

Covid-19 vs world

Gone are the days when humans had to defend their countries on borders against foreign invasion. Coronavirus invasion (Covid-19) is unique in the sense that humans can offer no defense despite the fact that the war is being fought on every doorstep. Prior to passing away, the infected ones transfer death in the form of Covid-19 to others they’ve been in contact with, thereby setting in motion a chain reaction that could encompass all humans on earth if timely precautionary measures are not adopted.

What the future holds in 2020 globally

Get ready for the first complete synthetic human brain, moon mining, and much more. Maybe robotic moon bases, chips implanted in our brains, self-driving cars and high-speed rail linking London to Beijing. According to a dazzling number of technology predictions that single out the year 2020, it’s going to be to be one heck of a year. Here, we take a look at some of the wonders it has in store. 2020, of course, is just a convenient target date for roughly-10-years-off predictions. “It;s not any more particularly interesting, in my opinion, than 2019 or 2021,” says Mike Liebhold, a Distinguished Fellow at the Institute for the

Death in the name of drug

Fake medicine is a worldwide phenomenon but Pakistan is worst hit. According the the World Health Organization (WHO), as many as one million people die every year worldwide from ingesting counterfeit medications. No data is collected as how many people dies in Pakistan every year due to fake medicine. In Pakistan, in 2012, in one incident alone, 120 people died after taking counterfeit heart medicine. On national assembly floor in 2010, the then interior minister Rehman Malik estimated that between 45-50% of Pakistani drugs were fake or of substandard quality. Instead of taking solid step to curb down this tendency, the government

Cost of business in pakistan

Pakistan is a country which owes much to the business community in its making. The founding father Muhammad Ali Jinnah appealed to business community during Pakistan movement as well as after its founding. Of course the business community helped strengthen the national economy but unfortunately business people were never appreciated, encouraged and painted as the real heroes of Pakistan. Instead they were portrayed as villain in our literature and movies. Despite all we want a strong national economy. How can we achieve this target? This is really a million dollar question. In our country we need to let our people know that busi

Beginning of the end an appeal to world's conscience

Of all the doomsday theories, one relates to unrestrained nuclear war wrapping up the whole world. Keeping in view of such scenario, the metaphorical Doomsday Clock has been formed and maintained by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists since 1947. As a matter of fact, it represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe in the form of nuclear risk or climate change. The Clock represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as "midnight" and the Bulletin's opinion on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of "minutes" to midnight. The current setting of the Doomsday Clock shows we are two m
