Pillar in an Economy

For every nation, there are few pillars, and they are considered as building blocks of a nation. These pillars are Military, Judiciary, and Youth! The stronger these pillars are, the more developed, and the more successful a nation is. The role of youth holds the central place, in deciding the fate of a nation. A very important fact is, that those countries, and nations which keep their youth-focused in the right direction and on the right path, and those countries, who consider their youth, as an important factor of their life are more progressive. Manpower, especially youth are the torch bearer of every nation.

Here in Pakistan, our youth lacks proper guidance, & leadership. All other developed and progressing countries in the world are aware of their worth, and they consider their youth as their asset. The reason for the success of these countries is they provide all the life necessities of life to their youth. Like Education, employment, health, and other facilities. If you are concerned about your youth, and you put it in the right direction, then you will see how productive and how different the results are.

We know, that Pakistan is in danger, and we are surrounded by different threats, including internal and external forces, which are trying to sabotage Pakistan and its peace. There are so many contradictions and problems, which are not letting us be ONE! To be united, we must eliminate the problems and internal disputes, which are among us. We should consider our youth as our power, and they should also consider serving their country as a national responsibly.

 

Pakistan’s Media

Media is a propagation medium through which information is disseminated. Media is a very powerful tool for change. What we see on our television screens, or what we watch largely affects our beliefs and our behaviors and thoughts.

Media is considered to be the fourth pillar of the state. In the past few years, Pakistani Media has emerged as the quickest way of information sharing. With the advent of privatization culture, Pakistani Media as aroused as the vibrant force. Pakistani Media has turned into a gun. You can use a gun either to defend yourself, to protect others or to kill others, This is what we are doing,. This is what Pakistani Media is following, they have turned themselves into guns, GUNS which are used to malign and kill others, rather than protecting or giving them a safe side.

In Pakistan, our Media works on an ideology of ratings rather than any moral or ethical stature.Media has the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, they can control the minds of the masses. Media can link governing bodies and the general public for a positive change. They can help the governing bodies to make decisions.

Pakistani media can’t deliver a news without sensation. Unfortunately, Pakistani Media has turned into a bullying machine, and they are not afraid to cross all the ethical and moral lines. An example is when Hamid Mir was attacked, GEO’s newsroom in no time threw blame on Pakistan’s top intelligence agency, and defamed DG ISI without any proper proofs and investigations. There are such other issues where media to behave irresponsibly.

Media should work in promoting and developing social consciousness and actions that are essential for development and betterment of society rather than spreading sensational news and implicating yellow journalism. Besides spreading exaggeration, Pakistani media should resolve the matters with the positive attitude. Media is supposed to play an important role.

 

Save Kashmir

The history of Kashmir is a 65 years old conspiracy that enslaved Kashmiris, and India deprived them of their basic human rights. The dispute arose between Pakistan & India as India claimed that State of Jammu & Kashmir is theirs whereas at the time of partition it was declared as Pakistan’s territory. The state of Jammu & Kashmir which lies in the northwest of the subcontinent has a majority of Muslims, and this was the reason that they declared to go with Pakistan rather than India at the time of partition.

Kashmiris believe that they belong to Pakistan due to their religious majority of Muslims, and in UNSC, Pakistan rejected India’s claim to Kashmir as Kashmiris are not willing to get under India’s administration so no one can force them to be a part of India. Moreover, Kashmiris oppose India because of the brutality and abuse of human rights by Indian Government.

Kashmir is unfinished agenda of Partition of the sub-continent. It was the reason of two wars between Pakistan and India and India is continuously denying the will of the Kashmiris as they want to get independence. It is one of the most dangerous conflicts that can cause a nuclear war.  United nations should take a notice of this issue and they should consider Pakistan’s resolution of declaring Kashmir as Pakistan’s territory.

Agriculture and Climate Change

Agriculture is both a victim and a cause of water scarcity. Water of appropriate quality and quantity is essential for the production of crops, livestock, and fisheries, as well as for the processing and preparation of these foods and products. Water is the lifeblood of ecosystems, including forests, lakes, and wetlands, on which the food and nutritional security of present and future generations depends. At the same time, agriculture is the largest water user globally, and a major source of water pollution. Unsustainable agricultural water use practices threaten the sustainability of livelihoods dependent on water and agriculture.
Additionally, climate change will have significant impacts on agriculture by increasing water demand, limiting crop productivity, and reducing water availability in areas where irrigation is most needed or has a comparative advantage. A growing number of regions will face increasing water scarcity. Climate change will bring greater variation in weather events, more frequent weather extremes, and new challenges requiring the sector to take mitigation and adaptation actions

Carbon farming and soil-friendly farming practices have become the calling card for climate change adaptation and mitigation for a simple reason: healthy, productive soils require carbon while a stable climate requires less carbon. Some of these practices have been well-known for some time but have not been adopted at the necessary scale, or have been discouraged by incentives and input subsidies that perpetuate unsustainable practices. No-till is one such practice

The concept of no-till agriculture resonates around minimizing soil disruption through obviating plowing of fields. Every year, roughly 60 gigatons of carbon enters the soil organic carbon sink as decomposing plant matter. Nearly 61 to 62 gigatons of carbon are lost from this pool as soil organic matter is oxidized by the atmosphere through tillage and erosion. Instead of plowing, farmers leave crop residue on fields after the harvest where it acts as a mulch to protect soil from erosion and a source of organic matter. This mulch reduces evaporation, which promotes water conservation and can be extremely useful in arid areas where water availability is limited. Crop residue furthermore provides soil organisms a source of food resulting in increased diversity of soil flora and fauna. Organisms like worms create channels in the soil that foster root growth and alongside the lack of tilling, contribute to a more stable internal structure that is resilient to environmental stressors and improves capacity for growth.

Under the right conditions, no-till is a climate-smart agricultural technique that supports food and nutrition security while providing resilience to climate change.
