    Pope John XXIII said ‘Men are like wine. Some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age’. The same quote could be apply to institutions and Pamir Times being a young institution of our age in our area ‘Gilgit-Baltistan’ could be said is the one which is improving and is not the one which turned into vinegar.

    Before saying Happy Birthday to Pamir Times, it is important to feel and realize the pain and difficulties that come across when someone wants to turn a huge fantasy into a reality, particular one that is belongs to the public domain and open for all sought of criticism and cry. Pamir Times, started as it looks with a tiny step towards providing a platform for exchanging information and ideas for the relatively small community of Gojal, Hunza. However, PT’s flavour being universal has attracted thousands of others across cities and countries in East and West, particularly those who have any kind of interest in Gilgit-Baltistan. The challenges and hurdles which were faced by Pamir Times when it has ‘Spoken Truth To the Power’ are enormous. On times Power Blocks have tried to annihilate the Pamir Times and struggled to turn it into vinegar but we salute Pamir Times to keep its ideals of speaking truth to the power by representing masses which has made it the finest wine for all those who have tasted it.

    Happy Birthday Pamir Times, for completing another successful year of taking intellectual, political, social and cultural initiatives and rousing transformation of democratic values among men and women of Gilgit-Baltistan and Hunza. We hope you would keep this light of advocacy and awareness on the path of democratic values, social justice and equal right for everybody that guarantees peace, progress and development for all. Happy Birth Day!!!!

  4. Congratulations! Zulfiqar and team!!!Meanwhile,pamir Time has produced,politicians like Noor Muhammad,a vocal,vibrant and vigilant person(VVVP) and today Zulfiqar rose to a position of national fame journalist jumped into high ranking development professional and people like us around got much knowledge and ideas on positive and sustainable development in our society and the beloved country.
    Of course PT is an example of communty based knowledge management and sharing information for rural and specially mountain areas of pakistan and the world.
    As an academacian by profession I would like to ask our students at university graduates to make PT as their topic of thesis just as

    Pamir Times role in knowledge management of Hunza-Nagar valleys

    As well as a dessertation for PhD is also possible because it is one of the first in its nature of media which has been playeding an integral role in communication of Gojal and Hunza-Nagar communities world wide .
