We love shouting out load “Pakistan Zindabaad” But there are few who are working on a far extent on branding/improving the image of Pakistan. Today I came across Another reason to be a proud Pakistani. Read about such a person who is a well aged guy but his effort for Improving the image of Pakistan is great. The guy I am talking about is named as Jamil Ahmad, hes 80 years old and hails from Islamabad. Hes a former civil servant.
This guy had interest in the tales of Long-Forgotten Pakistani Tribes, well the history of tribes that used to exist is quite rich and one could make number of documentaries on them.
This guy almost 40 years back completed his first and last novel called “The Wandering Falcon”. His book, tells the stories of tribal chiefs, political agents and colonial officers in the decades before Pakistan’s tribal regions became synonymous with al-Qaeda and the Taliban. He completed it by hand and his wife typed it up. Later he took the novel to the London publishers but they rejected it and then it was left in a drawer and forgotten. It was when his brother entered the unpublished manuscript in an online competition as his novel was quite rich with a lot of history in it it got shortlisted a week back, he was named on the shortlist for the region’s biggest book prize, the $30,000 Man Asian Literary Prize.
The judges of the competition described the book as a “sensational debut” and a “blistering critique” of misguided attempts to stamp out tribal identity.
So guys this is a new hero made in Pakistan. An author who don’t knows how to type and whose story/novel got rejected by London Publishers is now one of seven writers shortlisted for the Man Asian Prize, which is due to be announced in Hong Kong on 15 March.
What a talented nation we are, lets utilize the talent in the right way and raise the name of Pakistan high in the world. Lets Pray that he brings the award home.

For those who say “Pakistan is not much talented” I am like “Are you kidding me? HUH!”
Pakistan is a country which is blessed by Allah in many ways and its talented Inhabitants is one of that form. Yeah Pakistan has got many inspiring and talented Singers, Musicians, Photographers, Film-Makers and writers. Oh the writers here remind me of Sayeda.
Sayeda is a great asset of Pakistan, she was born and raised in Gilgit, an upper north range of Pakistan. She is busy as always in raising the image of Pakistan in front of the world and is one of the beings who make me feel Proud while saying Yes! I am from Pakistan.
Just recently she took part in an International Competition which took Place in USA. That competition was based on research of Drugs and its effects. The competition was open for 25 countries. The best part of this competition is that its winner is a Pakistan. Yes its Sayeda. Among all the 1900 participants, she stood first. What a great achievement she achieved.
Now comes the most Interesting Part. For this competition she compiled a book on Drugs and its uses with the Main Heading Drugs Free World. The book was compiled in 9 days with the use of Internet and News Paper. Whata hard work!! Seriously it Payed off.
This Achievement today made my day and of many other Pakistani’s who saw this come on news.
Sayeda If you read this sometime. I would let you know that your achievement is really a big one and yes it makes a big difference. We all are proud of having you in Pakistan and moreover in this world. You are just a blessing.
