About two weeks ago a friend of mine had been admitted in the hospital for abdominal pain and diagnosed with 1.5mm gallstone. While searching for a suitable treatment for gallstones, I found the following information at ABC HOMOEOPATHY website. My friend has an appointment for endoscopy after 2 weeks. Last week I advised him to try this remedy before he goes for endoscopy. Yesterday he took the final dose of Epsom salt and Olive oil and today morning three stones of about 7mm diameter were expelled which I have seen myself. I am confident it will work the same way for other gallstone patients too.Read More »REMOVING GALLSTONES NATURALLY
There is a well-built view that Pakistani identity is troublesome in western countries. It is more serious for Pakistanis than Indians; Bollywood stigma is not more precarious than someone perceived to be representing an extreme view of life. It is true that after 9/11, we are looked down as religious and repellent to western culture and values. The regular barrage of negative reports about Pakistan in media has tarnished the image of those who come from that part of the world. It hurts to know that those who respected Pakistani community and considered our people as intelligent and hardworking found us possibly dangerous or least against their values and customs. The truth is that most Pakistanis living in western countries still live in the old world, dominated by their religious fervor. From seventies to nineties, we never observed veil on Pakistani Read More »How it feels to be a Pakistani in North America

Rudyard Kipling’s 19th-century “Great Game” encompassed mostly the region mow comprising Pakistan and Afghanistan and adjacent areas. It remained an area of turmoil in the 20th century. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and the subsequent events that led to the ouster of Soviet forces and the emergence of the Taliban in Afghanistan in the last decade of the past century brought things to a head.
Robert D Kaplan’s 13th book, Monsoon, expands the area of “the Great Game” in the 21st century and examines the role of the US in the Indian Ocean. The interested powers include China, Russia, India and the emerging countries at the rim of the Indian Ocean. The search for energy and its denial thereof are what drove Japan to battle in the Second World War. The 21st century “Great Game” still has oil and gas as objectives, but the primary riches are greater (and now definable), the untold wealth buried in the triangle where the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan meet with Iran’s.Read More »21st century ‘Great Game’

* Issue divisive for Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition
LONDON: Britain is to cap the number of skilled workers entering the country from outside the European Union at 43,000 a year, down 13 percent from 2009, but at the higher end of recent proposals, the BBC reported on Tuesday.
Additionally, staff transferred by companies from another country would be exempt from the cap if they earned more than 40,000 pounds a year, the broadcaster said. The BBC gave no source for its report, and officials were not immediately available for comment. Read More »UK to cut skilled non-EU immigrants by 13 pc: BBC

Until 2007, Pakistan was regarded as one of the four fastest growing economies in Asia, the others being China, India and Vietnam. Goldman Sachs, an international investment bank, included Pakistan, along with Mexico, South Korea and Vietnam, in the club of the “Next Eleven” (N-11), on the basis of their potentials to emerge as major economic powers.
But in just three years, the Pakistani economy has ceased to be of interest to international forums.
At the recently concluded G20 Summit in Seoul, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission of Asia and the Pacific set up an experts’ group to present the Asia-Pacific perspective on the current global economic challenges,. I was one of the members of the group assigned the responsibility to prepare the views of the Asia-Pacific region. The group discussed the economies of countries including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Pakistan’s economy never made it to this particular discussion agenda.
