  1. A token of appreciation to the AKYSB, congrats to the winning and the runner teams.
    With which notion and motive had the AKYSB invited the Chief Executive, Mr Gazanfar? It gives an awkward sense that the AKYSB has invited him to a gathering being organized by them to take some chance from the opportunity.
    If it was not so, it is the AKYSB to make him understand that he is not going to deliver a damn hell speech of his long list of what he has done and what he has not……… and by the way from where madam Atiqa has appeared there? of course she might be on a visit to enjoy the autumn in hunza…..and make some innocents fool.
    Politicians who are there just to spoil us and make buck ,must be aware than now it is the time to keep themselves aloof, No need of political speeches in public places,they don’t have difference between a funeral,wedding, sports, and political gathering. they just have to utter where they see a group of people…..i have a suggestion for them why don’t they start amusing Montessori students. Do your job and have some money.

  6. Winning and losing both are part of any game; what is most important is the way one accepts the result; always better, if taken in a more sporting spirit.

    Wish that the sporting relations between Gulmit and Shishkat villages grow further, become stronger and healthier leading to better understanding and congenial interactions at all levels of in.

    The sports managers/ organizers of both the villages are expected to ask their respective teams to show more sport spirits in future encounters in all sporting events.

    Both the winning and runner up teams are however congratulated on their successes and exhibiting sporting spirit.
