DevelopmentGilgit - Baltistan is completing its 2 years of online service is completing its 2 years of voluntary online service.  The network started its function with a website and is now recognized as a pioneer in online journalism in Northern Mountain regions. Pamir Times magazine and daily news is now successful to attract a large number of audiences from all over the Northern Areas.

The main objective of this forum was to provide a centralized Knowledge Management and Networking plateform to the people of different villages of Gojal in order to discourage fragmented efforts and encourage a sense of belongingness with each others. 

During this period we received a large number of feedbacks from our regular readers and visitors.  Now in this stage we want to increase the scope, improve the services and strengthen the network based on our 2 years of experiences.

We need valuable critics and feedbacks from all honorable audiences, contributors and well wishers in order to strengthen this voluntary venture.

  17. Congratulations for completing two years with success and many thanks to for bringing all of us togather in a plate form where we can share and comment on every event from all around the world…….. cleberate it guys and keep it up.


  18. It is wonderful to go through the Pamir times some times which provides to us some times good glimpses of happenings in our part of the world.

    Some of the above comments are selfcongratulating, do we need to think beyond what we have done and learn from our mistakes. Before claiming any achivement we need to be realistic, we shold not be making false claims otherwise people will make fun of us and we will be taken a non serious punch of idiots. Please those who are not aware of the fact that we are not only the first online newspaper in the area, there are others such as K-2.

    all the best for furture of this initiative.

  21. I would say it was a great online journalism initiative. News dissemination from Gojal remained pretty good. But It requires coverage of news from other districts of NA specifically Diamer, Ghazir and Baltistan.
    Individuals specifically interns and students could be encouraged to undertake case studies present it on Even during summer breaks students in groups can carry- out research or case studies and share it. Some of the thematic area may include community development initiatives, indigenous farming practices and evolving trends, pastures/ livestock management, tourism trends and impacts.
    conservation, village banking, housing patterns and disaster risks could be other options.There could be many more interesting themes!!!!!!

    I presume that will grow both horizontally and vertically in its size and scale.
    Best wishes
