A few months ago, Project Peshawar made headlines for being the first international bilingual film to come out of Peshawar. The film recently premiered in the K-P capital late last month and received a lot of positive feedback. But film-maker Irshu Bangash told The Express Tribune that there have been people from the local entertainment industry who are trying to sabotage the film, claiming that it spreads a negative image of the city and “promotes western values” instead of local cultural values. Starring Afghan-Dutch actor Shoaib Lodin as the lead,

For most stray dogs, life rarely has happy endings. There is no Lady to their Tramp, and no Dear family to adopt them. Their collar-free lives are littered with instances of picking at scraps to survive, being beaten or threatened by mean passersby, and eventually ending prematurely with a poisoned meal or a bullet fired during a culling operation. Long story short, it’s not exactly how best friends would expect to be treated. Pointing to a group of strays sitting under a tree, Zeba Masood tells The Express Tribune how

The Ministry of Railways is planning to connect Peshawar with Afghanistan’s Jalalabad through rail link in order to facilitate the people of both countries, sources in the railways department said on Monday. A feasibility study titled ‘provision of rail link from Peshawar to Jalalabad through Loi Shalman Valley (145 Km)’ is under process, the said. “Pakistan Railways is making all out efforts to execute the project which is likely to be completed by December this year,” the sources claimed. It is still undecided whether the inclusion of existing track from

The history of English literature, as it is read, taught and enjoyed, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, would forever remain incomplete if it does not find adequate mention of sir Zia’s contribution to it. Syed Ziaul Qamar, who died three days ago on August 24, 2017, had this unique ability of making one instantly fall in love with English language. One wonders how many thousands of his students knew that this man dressed more often than not in western apparel and speaking English language with an enviable savoir faire came from a

Bridges have long fascinated people. Be it the 300 metre-high Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge in China connecting two mountains, the iconic tourist favourite Brooklyn Bridge in New York or the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Italy, considered one of the oldest in the world which survived World War II, bridges draw crowds to awe and inspire them with the feats of human achievement. It may not be wrong to say that bridges capture the human imagination like no other form of infrastructure does, perhaps because their inherent function appeals to the most

A team from KPK, iGEM Peshawar, has made it to the International Genetically Engineered Competition (iGEM), which will be held from 9th to 13th November 2017 at Boston, USA. 337 teams from 48 countries will be trying their best to bag the coveted prizes at the annual iGEM event. Last year, a team from iGEM Peshawar participated in the event for the first time and won the Bronze Medal at the 15th annual event. They earned accolades for their efforts to engineer a bacteria that can detect air pollutants such

Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government is planning to organise a grand cultural event to mark the centennial celebrations of the Pashto literature. Deputy Director K-P Directorate of Culture Shahbaz Khan said that they had been working to promote both tangible and intangible components of the Pashto culture internationally. “We have specialists working on different aspects of culture including research and documentation, languages and literature, visual arts and crafts, and steps to integrate culture with modern technology,” Shahbaz added. To create financial opportunities for local artisans, a business plan is being formulated by

The City of Flowers, Peshawar – Once known to be a place of story tellers, where nomads and travelers from all over the world would come and tell stories of their journeys, share experiences and spread knowledge and education. Since, Pakistan became the front line state against terrorism, the northern province, KP (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) in general and its capital city, Peshawar, in particular, became the victim to all ills, and almost every individual, organization and business have suffered one way or the other. Though, education has been the prime focus

Finally the result is out and admission season for matric pass students has begun, you will witness numerous private colleges offering admissions to these students especially if you are residing in FAQIRABAD or somewhere around this area. I reckon Zaryab Colony Faqirabad should be given the 2nd name “Base Of Educational Avocations”. Every unemployed educated individual have started the venture of opening a new college in a compartmented yard by partnership in this area and subdue the students mostly from undeveloped districts/agencies through different tactics like free tuition classes for
