  1. Dear Zulfiqar,

    Thanks for yet another good news, but spellings of the title of your news item and the seminar poster/ banner don’t match.

    For the benefit of readers like me, please tell us which one is the correct one and why. Educating the readers should also be one of the PT objectives.

  2. Respected Mutabiat Shah Sahab

    I appreciate and respect your sharp observation. Indeed the term counseling has been spelled wrongly on the banner.

    I hope that the organizers of such events, before counseling others, also reflect, on their own preparation levels.



  3. Dear Uncle Mutabiat Shah,

    It gives me immense pleasure to hear from you and hope that your intellectual contributions will always be a sign of courage for young generation. People like you can make a difference in the society through knowledge and wisdom. We are always anxious to learn from our elders with due respect.

    I would also like appreciate the effort of AKYSB for organizing career counseling and hope to replicate it in other locality of the region.

    Thanks Pamir Times and Gojal.Net for bridging the gaps and make us the member of global society.

    Thanks and regards
