Read, Think & understand the game International Powers are playing with us with the help of !

Electricity produced in Pakistan is from three main sources.

1). Hydral
2). Thermal (Gas/Steam/Furnace Oil)
3). Nuclear

There are four major power producers in country which include Water & Power Development
Authority (WAPDA) , Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC), Independent Power
Producers (IPPs) and Pakistan Atomic Energy
Commission (PAEC).

Below is the break-up of the installed capacity of each of these power producers (as of June-2008).

1. WAPDA

a. WAPDA Hy dal

Kot Addu Power Company Limited (Privitized)                1638 MW 

Total  (IPPs)                                              ===>   6365 MW

4. Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission
KANUPP                                                                     137  MW   
CHASNUPP-1                                                              325  MW 

Total (Nuclear)                                          ===>   462  MW

 

Hydal Electricity generated by WAPDA varies between two extremities i.e. between minimum of
2414 MW and maximum  of 6761 MW depending upon the river flow through the whole year.
Total Power Generation Capacity of Pakistan (including all sources) is 19855 MW and the
electricity demand (as of today 20-04-2010) is 14500 MW and PEPCO is merely generating
10000 MW.
So it is obvious that these 15-20 hrs power shutdowns in most parts of the country are not
because of the lack  of generation capacity but only because of IMF / World Bank policies
imposed on our nation by Govt. The Power Generation companies are not buying Furnace
Oil from PSO by saying they don’t have money to do that but we are all paying for Electricity
that is generated from Furnace Oil. This is the reason that top  refineries like PRL are operating
at 40% capacities. IMF / World bank has imposed to reduce budget deficit  by importing
less crude oil. But due to this fact all our industries are under severe crisis. None of our
political  party who are in Assembly is ready to speak on it because every one is blessed by
US / IMF / World Ban k.
Dear Pakistani’s,
This is a time to show your social activism your power and strength. It is your silence which is
deafening and your couldn’t care less attitude which makes the people in power more powerful
evasive and secure in their Air conditioned offices.
PLEASE STAND UP AND BE COUNTED:
Please create awareness,  spread the message …….

WE WANT ELECTRICITY IN PAKISTAN.

Electricity now is @11 Rs. per unit, and it will increase after every two months as directed
by (American) IMF policies.
Also CHINA offers to Pakistan Electricity for just Rs.200 Monthly Bill and Unlimited
Usage of Electricity but our government is not taking the offer seriously. This is because
there will be neither kick backs nor  any commissions to be pocketed by the strong mafia
of politicians and bureaucrats.  These people are there because of your votes. Let them serve
you rather than rule you……

NOW THIS IS OUR TIME TO SHOW THE GOVERNMENT YOUR STRENGTH. 

Sydneysiders welcome in 2012 with a fantastic fireworks display launched from barges on the water, building rooftops, and from the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. TV coverage on Ch9 with the audio simulcast on 2DayFM. “Time To Dream”!

Made up of 11000 shells, 25000 shooting comets and 100000 individual pyrotechnic effects, it will be viewed by 1.5 million people around Sydney Harbour (that’s a third of the population of Sydney), and around 1 billion people globally on TV.

PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY

Posted: January 1, 2012 in Global, uncategorized
Tags:

A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see; asked the students,’ How much do you think this glass weighs?’ ’50gms!’ …. ’100gms!’ ……’125gms’ ……the students answered. ‘I really don’t know unless I weigh it,’ said the professor,’but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?’ ‘Nothing’ the students said. ‘Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?’ the professor asked. ‘Your arm would begin to ache’ said one of the students. ‘You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?’ ‘Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress; paralysis; Have to go to hospital for sure!’ ventured another student; all the students laughed. ‘Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?’ asked The professor. ‘No’ the students said. Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?’ The students were puzzled. ‘Put the glass down!’ said one of the students. ‘Exactly!’ said the professor.’ Life’s problems are something like this. Hold it for a few minutes in your head; they seem OK. Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache. Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything. It’s important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but MORE IMPORTANTLY to ‘put them down’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep. That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh & strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!’ Remember to   ‘ PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY !

 

گلاس نیچے رکھیے

ایک پروفیسر نے پانی کا گلاس ہاتھ میں لے کر اپنا لیکچر شروع کیا
اس نےگلاس اوپر اٹھایا تاکہ سب اسے دیکھ سکیں۔ گلاس میں کچھ پانی تھا اس نے کلاس سے پوچھا اس گلاس کا کتنا وزن ھوگا۔
کسی نے کہا 50 گرام ، کسی نے 100گرام اور کسی نے جواب دیا کہ 125 گرام
ایک نے کہا میں اس وقت تک نہیں بتا سکتا جب تک اسکا وزن نہ کرلوں
پروفیسر نے کہا لیکن میرا سوال یہ ہے کہ کیا ھوگا اگر میں اسے کچھ دیر اسی طرح پکڑے رکھوں۔

کلاس: کچھ بھی نہیں
پروفیسر: ٹھیک لیکن کیا ھوگا اگر میں اسے ایک گھنٹہ تک اسی طرح پکڑے رکھوں
ایک طالب علم: آپ کی بازو درد کرنا شروع کردے گی
پروفیسر: بالکل درست، کیا ھوگا اگر میں اسے سارا دن پکڑے رکھوں
کلاس: اپکا بازو تھک جائے گا اور بازو کا پٹھہ بری طرح متاثر ھو سکتا ہے
پروفیسر: بالکل درست لیکن کیا اس دوران گلاس کے وزن میں کچھ فرق آئے گا
کلاس: نہیں
پروفیسر: اگر گلاس کے وزن میں کوئی فرق نہیں پڑا تو پھر بازو پر اتنا برا اثر کیوں پڑا۔ ایک منٹ تک کچھ نہیں ھوگا ایک گھنٹے میں بازو میں درد محسوس ھونا شروع ھو جائے گا دن میں بازو کا پٹھہ بالکل شل ھو جائے گا آخر کس وجہ سے
تمام طالب علم یہ سوال سن کر پزل ھوگئے کہ اسکا کیا جواب دیں
ایک طالب علم: اپنا کلاس نیچے رکھ دیں
پررفیسر: بالکل درست ،زندگی کے مسائل بھی اسی طرح ہیں
انہیں کچھ دیر اپنے ذہن میں رکھو ٹھیک۔ان کے بارے میں زیادہ دیر سوچو گے تو یہ درد سر بن جائیں گے۔ انہیں جتنی دیر خود پر سوار رکھو گے یہ اتنے ہی بھاینک محسوس ھونا شروع ھو جائیں گے۔اور آپکے ذہن کو مفلوج کر دیں گے آپ کچھ اور نہیںکر سکوگے

یہ ضروری ہے کے مسائل کے بارے میںسوچو لیکن ہر رات سونے سے پہلے انہیںذہن سے اتار دو۔ یعنی اپنا گلاس نیچے رکھ دو اس طرح یہ مسائل پریشان کن نہیں ھونگے آپ ہر روز تازہ دم اٹھیں گے اور ان سے نمٹنے کے لیئے نئے ذاویے سے سوچ سکیں گے۔ اور آپ ہر مسئلے کا مقابلہ آسانی سے کر سکیں گے

یاد رکھیں: اپنا گلاس آج نیچے رکھ کر سوئیں۔

Study and Visa guide for Study in Germany(MS Study)
*Errors and Omissions accepted.

Section 1: Pre Application.

First of all you have to visit DAAD website. Search for all the courses you are interested. Check out the basic requirements and also check the webpage of that particular program. You can also find the information about other programs by visiting the mentioned websites. Also you can collect information by contacting with seniors students or on different yahoo groups to have up-to-date information.

When you are done with short listing the Universities and Programs, check out the requirements of that particular program by visiting the webpage of that program (IELTS/TOEFL, GRE or German Language etc). Ideally you should have IELTS/TOEFL. GRE is not compulsory in all Universities but compulsory for some programs/Universities (TUKL, TUHH etc). If you have GRE then it can give you an advantage for admission, but normally Universities consider academics only.
International Master Programs are usually in English, but there are some programs partially in German Language. If the course requires you to have German Language then you can learn in the nearest GOETHE Institute or any private institute also.

Section 2: Application Procedure.

Normally you have to apply online for a program through particular program website (not for all the Universities). Following information/documents you have to provide:

1. Personal Details.
2. Academic Qualifications (Bachelor -> 12th -> 10th).
3. Work Experience (also Internship).
4. Research experience or Publications.
5. Information about recommenders. (Usually 2/3).
6. Statement of Purpose or Letter of Motivation.
As said before some Universities first demand to have online application. In this online application they short list the candidates for further procedure, but in some Universities after online application you get a PDF format application form (filled by you online) and you have to send that particular application form to University along with required documents.
Now coming to documents you need.

1. Transcript and Degree.

Usually you have to send the transcript of you bachelor transcript/degree. If you are still studying at time of application then you can send the result of previous semesters and later you can provide them the full transcript. (I don’t know what is the time limit because never experienced it).

• You can attest the Transcript/degree from your University/Notary Public. Normally Universities demand notarized documents. Some Universities also demand transcript/degree attested by the University in sealed envelope (like TU Darmstadt), in this case you have to send as it is recommended.

2. IELTS/TOEFL/GRE.

For IELTS you can attest it by Notary Public. For TOEFL/GRE you have to the send the result through ETS. As I know they charge some amount to send your result to respective institute. I don’t know the whole procedure because I had IELTS.

3. Letter of Recommendation.

Normally Universities demand 2 Letters of Recommendation. If you are working in any organization then you should have one Letter by the Employer and one from the educational institute where you studied your last degree. If you are still in college, get two recommendation letters from your professors. Try your best to get it from a professor who has a PhD and not from a junior lecturer or an assistant professor. It is always recommended to have the letter neatly formatted , spell checked and printed under the college letter head or under the letter head of the concerned professor and don’t forget to get the signature and seal of the professor in the letter. Once the letter is complete, put it an envelope carrying the name of your college. If that’s not available put it in a white envelope, seal it using good quality glue and take a seal and signature of your professor across the flap of the envelope. Please avoid using brown, orange or any other envelopes for recommendation letters.

Following details should be on LOR.
• Full name of Recommender.
• Email and Telephone Contacts.
• Position of recommender.
• Name of University.
Important: Some universities have their own specific format for recommendation letters. You need to download the form, get it filled by the recommenders and send it to the university in a sealed envelope. Make sure you visit the university website or contact the course coordinator to know exactly how the recommendation letters need to be sent (like in TU Munchen you fill the online application form and then you get PDF format of filled application form along with LORs at the end).

4. Statement of Purpose (also Letter of Motivation/Intent).

This is the most important part of an application. Spend considerable time on preparing, refining, and proof reading this document. Think of what will go through an admission committee members mind if he/she finds silly spelling or grammatical mistakes in your SOP!! It’s a clear indication of lack of professionalism on your part. Keep it short – within a page or two. Focus on why you are interested in that particular specialization, how your BE course has prepared you for this particular specialization (give details about your electives, projects, seminars etc.,), your long term research interests, possible research topics for your MS thesis and what are your plans after completing the master’s course.

Important: Do not copy readymade SOP’s available in the internet. Use it as a template but blatant copy-paste job makes it easier for the reviewers spot it and that can ruin your chances!

5. CV

Detailed CV (one or two pages) containing your personal information, educational information (bachelor’s and 12th grade is sufficient), work experience (including any internships), paper presentation in national or international seminars, publications in reputed journals and your hobbies/extracurricular activities. In the extracurricular activities section mention only about the recognition or prizes won at the state, national or international events. Do not include stuff like won inter-school dancing competition while in 5th grade or adjudged as the best singer of our apartment block!!!

6. Other Documents.

If you have other documents you can send them along with your application package, but don’t send useless documents/which are not necessary for admission decision.

Section 3: Sending Documents.
Once you are prepared with your all required documents, send them to the university/department address via courier. You can use any courier service which is reliable. In my case sometimes I used DHL and most of times I used Pakistan Post (Registered Service Only). DHL takes 4-5 working days and Pakistan Post takes about 15-20 working days. Fortunately I had no problem with anyone of above. So make one packet and put all your required documents in an order. There is no specific order for putting your documents but for guidance you can use the following order. (In descending order)
1. Application form (University’s/Department)
2. Educational documents(MS-> BS-> Fsc-> etc)
3. Language certificate (everyone which is available or required).
4. Statement of Purpose/Letter of Intent.
5. Experience certificate/Extra qualification certificates.
6. Any extra document which is required.
7. Letters of recommendation.
Usually don’t staple the documents. Only just put them in one big envelop and go to the respective courier.
Once again use attested copies of your documents and don’t use photocopy of attested copy. Also don’t send any original document. For any specific information it is better to be in contact with course co-ordinator for any extra document or about attestation of documents but normally as I said before Notary Public is enough (in my case I attested through Notary Public or through my University). If university asks you sealed documents then do as requested (in case of TU Darmstadt they ask the attestation of degree by the respective university and in sealed envelop).
So at this point your documents are ready to send. So send them and keep on tracing them. Usually university respond you immediately after they receive your document but sometimes they don’t reply immediately so don’t worry if your documents are delivered then no need to worry about misplacement here.

Section 4: Decision Time.

Normally Universities take 2-3 months for making decision. Sometimes they make overall decision for all the candidates and sometimes they make decision after regular time intervals. It is not necessary also that university makes decision after the deadline. They can make decision before the deadline also (like TU Darmstadt etc) but at least you have to wait until the deadline or the date they give you for final results.

Section 5: Learning German:

During the decision period you can join any institute to learn German language because it’s better to have some idea about German language beforehand so that you would be able to make conversation with people here.

There are many institutes offering German Language courses.
1. GOETHE Institute (Lahore and Karachi)
2. NUML
3. Punjab University.
There are also many other private institutes those offer German courses so you can join whatever you like.

Section 6: Admission Decision.

Once you get admission your university informs you through email/softcopy of your admission letter and after 15-30 days you get your hard copy of admission letter at your home.

In case of negative response they also inform you about it (sometimes they don’t inform through hard copy; only through Email.)

Section 7: Bank Account Opening.

Once you get admission then you have to open bank in Deutsche Bank. You go the respective Deutsche bank branch with your admission Letter, Passport and National ID card. If you have short time and your hardcopy of admission letter is not available then you can make print of your soft copy and show them. They accept in either case (they just need admission Letter).

Follow the following steps for account opening:
1. Go to the embassy’s website before going to the bank and find the amount which is required to be blocked ( in my case it was 7776 Euro with monthly limit of 648 Euro and you have to mention this amount on the form which the Bank will provide you for filling out the information). So fill out the required information and ask them for help if you need it.
2. After filling out the application form and stamped by the Deutsche Bank branch you have to send that application form along with the copy of admission letter and your passport to the desired address (this address will be available on the application form). Photocopy of your Passport and admission letter should be attested by the Deutsche Bank branch (they will return you above three documents fully attested).
3. Once you complete the documents, send them through DHL or any other courier service ( I did through DHL).
4. After 4-5 working days you get information about your bank details through an email (pdf file). Once you get your bank information then you have to transfer the required amount to this bank account. You can use the foreign currency account (Your’s/your father/any other member/friend; I used of my friend to transfer the amount). If you don’t find it then you can transfer the amount through Dollar East also. It is also a safe way to send but they charge extra amount. You can check for latest rates.
5. Once you will transfer the amount from Pakistan then after 3-5 working days you get the notification by Deutsche Bank the you amount has been transferred( Pdf through Email). One page will be in German and One page will be in English stating your amount in the bank account). At embassy you have to show only print of this Pdf file (no other financial proof).

Important:

1. Minimum amount should be 7776 Euro in your account with monthly condition of 648. But better you transfer more than 7778 Euro because once your amount will be here they will charge around 15 Euro and later 50 Euro when you will activate your account after coming in Germany. So it’s better to transfer 100-150 Euro extra. Any extra amount more than 7776 Euro will not be blocked; you can get this amount directly after coming here. So you can deposit extra amount which you like.

2. Sometimes it happens that you open account on the base of admission letter of one university and later you go to another University, but that doesn’t matter because you can access your account anywhere in Germany and you can activate at any Deutsche Bank branch here after coming ( for example I’ve my account in Munich because first I had the intention for TU Munich but later I applied visa for University of Stuttgart; so this thing doesn’t matter).

Section 8: Embassy Appointment.

(For Islamabad case only; because there is somehow little different case in Karachi)

When you send your bank documents to Hamburg (for account opening) then at that time call the German Embassy to take an appointment for visa because they give you appointment after time period of 20-30 days (because in winter semester many students apply for visa and Embassy processes around 20 candidates per day). So it’s better to take appointment well before time and during this time your account and amount transfer will be done. They ask you about your name, date of birth and give you date and time for your interview (with token number).
You have to take appointment by phone. Use this link to make an appointment:

Section 9: Visa Documents.

Now you have to prepare for visa interview and prepare your documents. Following are the documents required. Arrange them in the same order which is mentioned here (otherwise you have to arrange at time of Interview). You need 3 sets of documents (make one original set and 2 sets of photocopies in following order for Original and same for Copies).

1. Application form.
2. Passport Copy (1st four Pages only)
3. List of Relative and children outside Pakistan.
4. Security Questionnaire.
5. Applicant’s Declaration.
6. CV
7. Academic Documents (Degree->Transcript->HSSC->SSC).
8. Other educational and Experience documents.
9. Proof of Blocked account (print of Pdf file); only German page is enough.
10. Health Insurance (here you have to show your travel insurance which you can get through companies mentioned on Embassy’s website. It is not necessary at time of Interview but it’s better to take with you because I didn’t take and she said to send it later through Fax).
11. IELTS or German Language Skills.
All the above documents are important other than at # 8 (because they don’t consider it for study visa and it’ll only make more documents). Well you have to attest only your original documents (no need to attest photocopies). Original degree+transcript through HEC/Foreign Office and HSSC+SSC through IBCC/Foreign Office.
You are also required 4 photographs. Staple 3 photos on application forms on the space available for photos (don’t paste) and put the 4th photo with a paper clip on original application form. All documents should be duly signed by the candidate where it is required.
So that’s it with arranging your documents.

Section 10: Visa Interview.

You should be there well before time. You can use Shuttle Bus Service to go to embassy which will be available outside Diplomat Enclave. You should be at Shuttle Service station 45-60 mints before starting your interview because it takes some time to purchase ticket and other such stuff. So at your assigned time you will enter in the Embassy and there will be a counter when you enter in Main Hall. You have to deposit visa fee (60 Euro) at that counter and you will get a receipt (more information you can find on Embassy’s website). You will find your token under specific counter. So you have to go at that counter and have to appear for Interview.

Following are the questions usually asked during your Interview:
1. What you have studied?
2. What are you going to study?
3. How long this course is?
4. Why you selected this University and course?
5. How you find information about this course/university?
6. Do you have any friend in Germany?
7. About family (members, what they do)?
8. About family financial status?
9. Who is going to finance you?
10. Some other general questions related to you/famil/course etc.
Interview will be for about 15-20 mints. During the interview answer all the questions confidently.
So now you are done with your interview. After 4-8 weeks you get response about your visa.
Wish you best of Luck. May ALLAH help all of you.
This information is for public use so guide the other students as much as possible for you.

The youngest IT certified professional Aarifa Karim is hospitalised and in critical condition Aarifa Karim, a Pakistani girl from Faisalabad who became the world’s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) in 2004 at the age of nine, is in a critical condition in a hospital in Lahore, Express News

 

Karim’s father told Express News that she had an epileptic attack on December 22 which damaged her heart and her brain. Doctors said that she is on a ventilator and they might have to unplug her machines as there are hardly any chances of saving her, but they cannot take any decision against the family’s will. After the news of Karim’s condition emerged, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif took notice of it and announced providing economic support to the family, but Karim’s family refused to take the money. Karim had also earned the Fatima Jinnah gold medal and Salam Pakistan Youth Award in 2005 over her achievement, and was also invited to the Microsoft Headquarters in the US by Bill Gates for being the World’s youngest MCP. Karim earned her first flight certificate by flying a plane at a flying club in Dubai at the age of 10, and was invited by Microsoft in 2006 to be a key-note speaker at the Tech-Ed Developers Conference, where she was the only Pakistani among over 5,000 developers. She is currently 16 years old and is studying at Lahore Grammar School Paragon Campus.

I pray to ALLAH the Most Merciful for her health and full recovery soon (a’ameen). Let everyone of us pray for her five times in our prayers. Long live Aarifa Karim.
