    Proud on such sisters, daughters and feminine of Gilgit-Baltistan and women folk of this great Country-Pakistan. Saida You are Beacon for the YOUTH specially our daughters and Youngster of Gilgit-Baltistan. We all are interested to know more about SADIA and her parents. My request goes to the team of PT to have a detail interview of SADIA and share it on this and other electronic media really good for the YOUTH.
    It proves that genious and knowledge is boundryless.

  6. Ejaz says:

    perhaps no one from LUMS and IBA participated 🙂

    • Yasir Hunzai says:

      I doesnt matter because it was an international competition….Nobody knows your LUMS or IBA internationally.
      Be open minded and appreciate the achievement. 🙂

    • Kamran says:

      Dear Ejaz,

      If you cannot appreciate someone, dont dare to show your narrow mentality.

  7. karim shah says:

    well done for getting the great milestone and congrats for the life time scholarship

  8. Baig says:

    Bravo sadia. keep it up.
    @ Ejaz, please don’t think that IBA or Lums is the only institution to have bright students.

  9. Abbas Ali Khan says:

    Well done my daughter,We are proude of you, keep it up.

  10. Sajid I. Barcha says:

    Congratulations on the win!

    @ Ejaz
    That was an incredibly foolish comment.

  11. Marvelous achievement Saadia. God give you the courage and knowledge to prosper in life.

  12. Ghulam Ahmed says:

    Well done Saida good on you !

  13. Dr.Sabit Rahim says:

    Writing involves thinking and creation, which is not an easy thing. I wholeheartedly congratulate Ms.Sadia on her excellent achievements. Furthermore, I strongly support the comment made by Mr.Toojik and reitrate his demand for providing more information about this rising star of Gilgit-Baltistan. PT team assumes that we know every body in that vast regions of ours. Please have an in depth interview of the young lady for the benefit of all.

  27. Murtaza Mughal says:

    Guys! It’s natural that all of us are eager to learn more about this outstanding daughter. First of all my congrats to her parents also, they nurtured her in such a way that she was able to achieve such a pride on international level. It’s also a lesson for us (parents), not to discriminate between sons and daughters as usually we do. My appreciation also goes for Pamir Times for timely publishing this and hope to serve the deprived nation in the future.

    Her father Mirbaz Khan son of Mirza Khan, a businessman, originally migrated from Khanabad, Shinaki, Hunza, further migrated from Sultanabad, near Danyore, Gilgit and now settled in at Sonikote, Gilgit is well-known for his social work.

    I wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

  35. fatima aman says:

    She made all of us proud. Its indeed a very good news. I hope our youth will get an insight motivation from this success story of a young girl. I wish sadia and her family many many Mubaraki.

    I would highly appreciate if Pamir Times try to bring forward her thoughts which she has reflected in form of essay. We are eager to read.


  36. Hina Sher says:

    Dear Sadia,
    Heartiest congratulations on this brillinat success.You are an exemplary figure for the youth of our time.It proves that knowledge knows no boundries and to be diligent means you own the world.You should try to dessiminate the information to provide a guidline for the youth.If possible I would suggest that you hold some presentations in differnt institutions in Gilgit Baltistan to spread the awareness about such oppurtunities.I am sure there is great hidden talent in the youth of our region and they need guidance and motivation for such chances.Moreover your success on international level is an honor not only for your and your parents but for the whole country. Knowledge is an ocean so you are honored to contribute to this ocean.I suggest that you should try inspire the youngsters of Gilgit Baltistan through your maximum interaction to them on collective level through your talks and presentations.
    Once again congratulations from me and my husband Sher Baz.

    Keep it up.

  37. Trangfa Maujood says:

    The dark clouds of politicised discourse has engulfed the literary landscape of Gilgit-Baltistan. While we hear a great deal about the impending great game, the tales of corruption, the infiltration of People’s Liberation Army, issues around Diamer-Bhasha dam, yet we seldom talk about great creative arts. This is indeed pathetic.

    By winning an international essay competition Sadia Mir has pumped fresh air in the otherwise culturally dormant Gilgit-Baltistan. For her extraordinary achievement I send my best congratulations.

    But I am wondering if it is possible for PT to publish her essay, and let us know little bit more about this courageous young lady. I would reiterate Dr Sabit Rahim’s suggestion that you guys should publish an interview or a profile of Sdia for the benefit of us all as well as for inspiration to other young literary individuals. We need further information as to which competition was this, where was it held, and what are other opportunities for people like Sadia to participate in such competitions.

  41. Haqiqat says:

    Le trangfa,
    I am sure that your utopia is Shishpar meadows but not in reality because there is no internet (and must not be an internet) in the meadows (at least for now). Yet, your comments arrive at a daily basis?? How do you manage this???
    I write it because, (in my own perception) there is none than myself who crazily loves the nature and its wilderness to such an extreme level where people can’t even imagine.
    I am much more inspired with your word’ Shishpar meadows’ rather than the subjectivity of your comments.
    No doubt, that your comments are matured but more mature (to me) is Shishpar meadows.
    I Know that this is the end of the season to be on the pasrures, but I strongly long for a visit by the mid November as I leave from Paris to be there on 7th November on a long vacatioàn of 3 months. I would sincerely be pleased if you could respond on the e-address below.

  42. Haqiqat says:

    the correct word in the last paragraph is “pasture”.

  43. Amna zamir says:

    dear sadia,
    Many congratulations for your success. I pray to God that you may achieve trillions of more accomplishments.

  63. Mir Hassan says:

    LUMS and IBA are even not comparable to UET and NUST which hold some Place in the top five range on international university rankings
    UET Lahore has 281st and NUST too is in top five hundred . Your IBA and LUMS are not even mentioned there .Go to Q&S international rankings .
    you should accept the achievement . she has got the first position on international scale . The whole idea of even mentioning LUMS and IBA seems totally preposterous .

  70. Congrates Sadia!!!!! as the talent of GB has started making its place nationally and internationally, your this achievement is a catalyst in the process….. I also salute you for brining the GB community together for being emotionally proud to be part of that part of the world….. indeed it is a great contribution towards raising the self esteem of the youth; in people’s confidence on the hidden talents; and above all giving the message that no matter where you nurture or study, you can turn impossiblilites into possibilities.

    Whish you best of luck for more successes ahead..
