Culture of Pakistan

...ELEMENT OF PAKISTANI CULTURE The society and culture of Pakistan comprises numerous diverse cultures and ethnic groups: the Punjabis, Kashmiris, Sindhis in east, Muhajirs, Makrani in the south; Baloch and Pashtun in the west; and the ancient Dardic, Wakhi, and Burushocommunities in the north. These Pakistani cultures have been greatly influenced by many of the surrounding countries' cultures.The past few decades have seen emergence of a middle class in cities such asKarachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Hyderabad, Quetta, Faisalabad, Sukkur, Peshawar,Sialkot, Abbottabad, and Multan. Rural areas of Pakistan are regarded as more conservative, and are dominated by regional tribal customs dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. Literature Pakistani literature originates from when Pakistan gained its nationhood as a sovereign state in 1947. The common and shared tradition of Urdu literature and English literature of South Asia was inherited by the new state. Over a period of time, a body of literature unique to Pakistan has emerged in nearly all major Pakistani languages, including Urdu, English, Punjabi, Pashto,Seraiki, Balochi, and Sindhi. Poetry Poetry is a highly respected art and profession in Pakistan. The enthusiasm for poetry exists at a regional level as well, with nearly all of Pakistan's provincial languages continuing the legacy.

...BIASED EDUCATION SYSTEM OF PAKISTAN AND ITS CONSEQUENCES “I go to school, I am in sixth grade, can I speak as fluently and write as efficiently as you can Madame when I will reach you age?” asked my maid’s daughter one day with a bright sparkle in her eyes. Her question caught my heart and I stared her for a moment and realized that would saying “YES” is true enough or saying “NO” is justified? Alas, I couldn’t answer her question, for even I am amazed what the answer could be. The high low standards are not only the matter of brands, luxuries and fame, this dune of difference has captured a huge market in all domains, especially the education sector. The concept of slum schools (generally known as PEELA SCHOOL culture in our society), that are being opened in most of the poor streets and eating up lot of funds in the name of providing education. A number of small private schools, charging a huge amount of fees and a lot of government school, which are only used for election purpose in our country. The gap among the classes have crushed the mentality of every person, even two persons holding same degree are not qualified at the same level. Is that they are not competent enough to learn? Or they are not wealthy enough to afford big schools, or they don’t have shaky tongues to speak so called shaky English that they can become a burger child? It is all because of ununiformed standard of education system. If we particularly have a glimpse of Pakistan, there are several......

...human being, value systems, traditions and beliefs." PAKISTANI CULTURE Pakistan is the country full of natural and cultural wealth. Pakistan has its own unique and specific cultural identification. Culture and heritage of Pakistan reflects the extra ordinary skill and devotion of Pakistani people. Pakistani people are playing a vital role in the presentation, development and promotion of Pakistani culture. The Pakistani culture is dominated by Islamic tradition and heritage. Islamic heritage has great impact on Pakistani culture. In ancient times, Pakistan was a major cultural hub. Many cultural practices and great monuments have been inherited from the time of the ancient rulers of the region. One of the greatest cultural influences was that of the Persian Empire, of which Pakistan was a part. In fact, the Pakistani satraps were at one time the richest and most productive of the massive Persian Empire. Other key influences include the Afghan Empire, Mughal Empire and later, the short-lived but influential, the British Empire. Punjabi Objectives Pakistan is a country of diverse communities with cultural traditions, belief systems, value systems, life styles, dialects and aspirations which determine the objectives of the policy, which are listed below.

...the house, doing laundry and making beds. It always leaves a feeling of guilt and remorse in the pits of her stomach. She shuts the door and goes to the protruding faucet next to which is a large container which she fills with water. There is only one temperature; cold. The cold water is comforting in the blistering heat that is beginning to set in already. After her shower, she dresses in her favorite set of salwar kameez; a light pink with embroidered flowers, and makes her way to the kitchen. The smell of Puri wavers to her nostrils even before she enters the kitchen, making her mouth water. Puri is a favorite breakfast for all in Pakistan; composed of unleavened bread deep fried in vegetable oil and eaten with halwa. As she eats she listens as her mother and aunt talk of the troubles of Pakistan. At first glance the country of Pakistan appears insignificant, a nation stunned into a long and painful silence after one of the world’s most traumatizing earthquakes. One would think that from this crumbling place could come nothing but sadness and despair. However, at a second glance the eyes begin to make out life behind the wreckage. Slowly the merchants clear the dust from their doors and open up once again to catch passerby’s eyes with the smell of their ripe fruit or the shine of their gleaming trinkets; children once more immerge from their homes with their father’s cricket bats in hand to play the most popular Pakistani pastime, and every morning each man and women......

...Topic: Birth of Pakistan (1947) The British Parliament passed the Indian Independence Act on July 18, 1947. The Act created two dominions, Indian Union and Pakistan. It also provided for the complete end of British control over Indian affairs from August 15, 1947. The Muslims of the Sub-continent had finally achieved their goal to have an independent state for themselves, but only after a long and relentless struggle under the single-minded guidance of the Quaid. The Muslims faced a gamut of problems immediately after independence. However, keeping true to their traditions, they overcame them after a while. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was appointed the first Governor General of Pakistan and Liaqat Ali Khan became its first Prime Minister. Pakistan became a dominion within the British Commonwealth of Nations. The boundaries of Pakistan emerged on the map of the world in 1947. This was accomplished on the basis of the Two-Nation Theory. This theory held that there were two nations, Hindus and Muslims living in the territory of the Sub-continent. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan was the first exponent of the Two-Nation Theory in the modern era. He believed that India was a continent and not a country, and that among the vast population of different races and different creeds, Hindus and Muslims were the two major nations on the basis of nationality, religion, way-of-life, customs, traditions, culture and historical conditions. The politicization of the Muslim community came about......

After the Muslims were able to gain power in the 1930s formation was requested by the Muslims for independence. India and Pakistan were granted this formation by the United Kingdom in 1947. Pakistan was originally divided into two wings, east and west. It wasn’t till 1971 that the east wing was considered another nation called Bangladesh. Due to regional confrontations and domestic political upheavals never being resolved two wars were fought between India and Pakistan in 1947 and 1965 over territory. Since relations between India and Pakistan have been rough, but both countries are trying to make amends. Other struggles Pakistan has faced is very early in its development they had lost several prime ministers that set a course of political instability in the country.

...Pakistan is a beautiful country. It is the land of the pure and the land of dreams, where each day the sun rises to mark a new beginning. Founded back on the 14th of August 1947, it is 65 years old. When Pakistan first came into being, many people said it would not survive. However, it is true that our forefathers faced several problems and had to make many sacrifices, but today, as the 21st century progresses, Pakistan has surely come over hurdles and made developments in many fields of life. Pakistan is a country that possesses a store of talent; however the problem arises when it comes to using that talent, as for many years now, Pakistan has been facing serious issues that include terrorism. Terrorism has led to a rising death toll and destruction of homes, markets, businesses, etc. the constant blast of guns and bombs has instilled a fear in the hearts of the people. One of the major problems that Pakistan is currently facing is the load shedding issue of electricity and gas. It has resulted in absolute chaos. Industries are collapsing, people are facing the evils of unemployment and there is general disorder in the country. Businesses are also facing closing issues. It has resulted in inflation as production of products is low and therefore it has increased demand rates where sufficient materials are not being provided. Load shedding is also causing a menace to the domestic sector as now we have to work by candlelight, generators, U.P.S etc. the studies of...

Education in Pakistan

...Education System of Pakistan (Argumentative Essay) By: Salman Awan Class: BBA 2-G Mentor: Miss Beenish It is common knowledge that education plays a cardinal role in a nation’s stability, development and progress. Educated people are aware of their rights and duties, thus through their awareness they go on to create an environment full of people who know their moral obligations and who can play their part in the society. Sadly, numbers go on to show that only 4% of Pakistan’s population has Bachelor’s Degrees, of which 1.9% has fake degrees. Although the fact that only 2.1% population has Bachelor’s Degrees is something to worry about, but there are much bigger bugs to squat. Parents pay hefty sums of money to send their children to schools where they only memorize things rather than actually learning and get no sort of physical education or get to take part in any extracurricular activities, our 9th graders still think that atom is the smallest unit of an element because of our outdated education and education for women is still believed to be taboo in rural societies. Education is one of the main foundations of a country and if our education system is not fixed, Pakistan will remain in the darkness forever. Thanks to my father, I got to study in some renowned schools which weren’t so friendly to his pockets. All the principals made him believe that if I study in their school, I’ll become a possessor of unrivalled sagacity, wisdom or I might even become...
