When I get up early in the morning, my eyes, almost always, fall on the white painted wall, in the middle of which is located a window, opening into a green colored orchard.

In the nights, when the outside is dark, and the sky is moonlit, the view through the window is breathtakingly awesome. The colors inside my room remind me of the national flag especially when there’s a crescent illuminating the sky.

Always in my prayers, I thank Pakistan for everything she has provided me. After the womb of my mother, the land of Pakistan was the only thing which has opened its lap, and provided me opportunities, since my birth.

You got my respect beautiful Pakistan. Salaam Pakistan!

God has blessed Pakistan with almost everything. Colored every year by four seasons, Pakistan is home of K2, the world’s second highest mountain. It is a land of raging rivers, and calm lakes, hissing forests and barren deserts, fertile fields and juicy fruits, some of the world’s oldest cities, great monuments, flora and fauna, shrines, and one of the fastest growing economies of the world.

My beautiful country Pakistan is exhibiting excellence in every aspect of life, despite of all the odds. In education, we have world recognized and top ranking institutions like NUST, LUMS, AKU and QAU. The students of these institutions have always made Pakistan proud both professionally and personally. When it comes about the health and hygiene, Aga Khan University Hospital has won many hearts, and now leading in Asia, and generally in the world for being a trust-worthy hospital by providing its patients a best and world-class treatment.

In Information Technology Sector, we created legends like Arfa Karim, the Youngest Microsoft Certified Information Technology Professional (MCITP) of the world.

In sports sector, Pakistani sportsmen and women have entrancingly achieved many milestones, and hoisted the flag of Pakistan in different countries of the world, with pride and dignity. It’s worth mentioning here that Pakistan is one of the best producers of the world, when it comes to sports goods.

Similarly, we’ve one of the world’s strongest armies, having the ability to defeat our enemies, with the help of the world’s top intelligence agency, our ISI. Pakistan also crowns a title for being a country having a world’s highest ATM located near Pakistan-China Border in Hunza Valley.

Pakistan is also the home of legends.
