NOSTALGIA FOR THE GOOD OLD DAYS
 
 
ISSUE # 52-----Dec 26 - Jan 01, 2006

The Aga Khan, since assuming the office of Imamat in 1957, has been concerned about the well-being of Muslims, particularly in the face of the challenges of rapid geopolitical changes. Over the four decades there have been major political and economic changes around the world. The Aga Khan has adapted the complex system, pioneered by his grandfather, to a new world of nation-states, which even recently has grown in size and complexity following the newly acquired independence of the Central Asian Republics of the former Soviet Union.
The keen interest of the Aga Khan in Pakistan can be gauged by the large number of agencies involved in various economic spheres. A quick review of the work done in Pakistan shows not only diversity of programs but the aim remains improving the quality of life of people, be it education, healthcare or employment generation.

  KALABAGH DAM

Kalabagh dam issue has once again appeared on the surface of the political fronts. The government seems to have a valid point for advocating the construction of water reservoirs in the face of fast depleting water resources. According to an estimate the agriculture which is the backbone of the national economy would be in need of water to cater to over 20 million acre feet of land to avoid a national disaster by 2020.
While the opposition, in the Province of Sindh, has its own reservations especially on the back of existing state of affairs regarding downstream flow of water in the Indus which they argued already presenting a deserted look and if the water flow was diverted towards the dam that would add to the problem.
