INTRODUCTION:

Different countries have different origin stories for Labour Day or May Day. However, the emphasis of this day is usually on the accomplishments and efforts of workers. It raised awareness about the rights and opportunities that every worker should have for their own health and advancement.          

As we all know, a Labourer is the component of society that underpins all economic progress. Also in today’s mechanical age, the value of a labourer has not diminished. Labour contribution is critical in industries such as manufacturing, commerce, agriculture, construction of houses, bridges, and highways, and so on. So, we can say that Labour is the accretion of all human physical and mental endeavour operated in the production of goods and services. It is the fundamental element for the output.

What Is The Purpose Of Labour Day?

Labour Day, an annual celebration of workers and their accomplishments, began during one of the most difficult periods in American labour history.

To earn bread in the late 1800s, at the pinnacle of the United States’ Industrial Revolution, the average American worked 12-hour a day and seven-day a week. In spite of some federation controls, children as young as 5 or 6 worked in mills, factories, and mines around the country, receiving a fraction of what their adult companions did.

People of all ages, particularly the poor and recent immigrants, frequently worked in hazardous conditions with little access to fresh air, sanitary facilities, or breaks.

Labour unions, which had first emerged in the late 18th century, became more influential and vocal as manufacturing gradually supplanted agriculture as the source of American employment. To protest unfair working conditions and force employers to renegotiate hours and wages, they started organizing strikes and demonstrations.

Many of these incidents were violent during this time period, including the notorious Haymarket Riot of 1886, which resulted in the deaths of several Chicago police officers and staff. Others established long-standing traditions, such as the first Labour Day parade in the United States, which took place on September 5, 1882, when 10,000 employees took unpaid time off to rally from City Hall to Union Square in New York.

The concept of a “workingmen’s holiday” caught on in other manufacturing cities around the country, and several states passed laws to recognize it. Just 12 years later, when employees of Chicago’s Pullman Palace Car Company went on strike on May 11, 1894, to protest pay cuts and the dismissal of union leaders, Congress legalized the holiday. This was indeed a horrendous day in the history of American Labour protests.

The American Railroad Union, led by Eugene V. Debs, called for a boycott of all Pullman railway cars on June 26, crippling rail traffic throughout the country. The federal government intervened to end the Pullman strike. To put a period in the Pullman strike, the federal administration sent troops to Chicago, which led to a surge of riots that resulted in the deaths of more than a dozen workers.

Therefore, we celebrate Labour Day in order to pay tribute to those labourers who sacrificed themselves for the great cause.

Who Initiated The Celebration Of Labours Day?

In the aftermath of the widespread violence, Congress passed legislation making Labour Day a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories in an effort to mend relations with American workers. The head of the state Grover Cleveland signed it into a new rule in June 1894.

Many people give credit to others, some say it was Matthew Maguire, a secretary of the Central Labour Union, who first proposed the holiday, while others say it was Peter J. McGuire, cofounder of the American Federation of Labour. However, the real founder of Labour Day has yet to be named more than a century later.

What are the Traditions Of Celebrating Labours Day?

International Labour Day, also known as May Day or Labour Day, is observed as an official holiday in many countries around the world to honour the achievements of workers. On this day, a variety of programmes and events are planned. Various banners and flags in various colours are also painted by the labourers. Various news and messages about Labour Day are broadcast on television and social media to raise social consciousness among the public.

As a result, every year, on May 1st, Labour Day or May Day is commemorated in various countries around the world to raise awareness about the rights and opportunities that every worker should have for their livelihood.

How is Labour Day Celebrated In the Recent Times?

Despite the fact that Labours Day weekend is now synonymous with barbecues, weekend getaways, and summer clearance sales, worker-oriented Labour Day parades and celebrations abound in hundreds of cities across the United States; it happened in 2019. Faces of all races and ethnicities could be seen in pictures of those parades, as unions today are more diverse than ever before.

Because of COVID-19, parades were cancelled in 2020, but some unions commemorated the day by doing good deeds. According to NBC 4 Los Angeles, a Labour group in Los Angeles came together to fund a food distribution that served thousands.

The AFL-CIO and other unions are now dominated by Labour leaders who are focused on day-to-day problems rather than broad social change. Unions also try to benefit their members by endorsing political candidates, funding political action groups, and taking positions on topics such as human rights and workplace security.

CONCLUSION:

Labour Day is a day for unwinding and rejuvenation. It is also a good time to remember those who fought for workers’ rights and implemented reforms. They set a great trend for the generations to come. However, the Labourers were only granted their minimum legal rights because of a few people who came forward and urged others to do so as well. Now, it is time for us to strive for the daily wagers, especially in our premises, who work endlessly for relatively low margins.

5 Greatest Scientific Inventions for Mankind

0

All scientific inventions are phenomenal and extremely effective and have transformed the lifestyles of mankind considerably. Truly speaking, since the time when rock was struck to create a sharp-edged apparatus to the first appearance of the wheel about 5500 years back in Mesopotamia to the Mars rovers, a motor vehicle capable of traveling on the Mars planet and still making innumerable headways like unprecedented and rapid development in the field of internet. Undoubtedly, there is a large number of scientific Inventions. However, the following five are the most distinguished ones keeping in view their everlasting significance and efficacy.

1. The Wheel

The wheel is not a sudden or dramatic discovery and advancement and therefore can not be regarded as a breakthrough invention like the lightbulb, the telephone. In fact, the archaeologist’s pieces of evidence suggest it is about 5500 years old exploration and found in Mesopotamia, a historical region located in West Asia. At the inception, it was not employed for transportation purposes. Rather, it was used as the potter wheel, a machine that ushered in a revolution for ancient people. In due course of time, the amalgamation of the axel and wheel brought about the preliminary model of transformation. Subsequently, this type of transportation evolved into further substantial forms, especially with the advancement of science and technology. Ensuring the origination of the wheel, the Sumerian, the earliest renowned civilization of Mesopotamia, developed the sled, a vehicle-type object employed for traveling purposes.

Indeed, the use of wheel has been the same, but the contemporary wheels are quite distinct from the older plain wooden ones. The advancement in material science has given rise to various tires in respect of cars, bicycles, trucks, etc. Above all, the wheel has contributed in every field, whether it is agriculture, commerce, and the individual life of a man, found as a pivotal component of our way of living.

2. The Compass

Prehistoric seafarers, known as mariners, would navigate using the stars; however, that technique was not workable while they used to navigate on cloudy nights or during the daytime, at times would result in harmful consequences, especially for voyage away from their local areas. It was important to have an appropriate device whereby mariners could ascertain their direction during navigation. The compass was produced for the first time by the Chinese about two thousand years ago. At the inception, it was named “South Pointing Fish.” It is commonly known as a magnetometer that computes a magnetic flash, especially a magnetic field. A few compasses measure a change in a magnetic field, direction, or strength regarding the practical direction or location. It shows a diagram usually identified as “compass rose,” displaying main routes in terms of directions such as West(W), East(E), North (N), and South(S), and the gradient rises the clockwise direction. Over time, the significant technology progressed and moved on to the Arabs and Europeans. They made several changes using science and technology advancements. Thus, the compass helped the mariners navigate securely everywhere. This invention and subsequent remarkable developments have made headways in respect of the sea trade and navigation as a whole.

3. The Telephone

Admittedly, the invention of the telephone device significantly provided an unprecedented facility of human interaction to a greater extent. It is the apparatus employed to pass on and collect sounds. The word telephone originated from the word tele and phone that means far and voice, respectively, in the Greek language. Its pioneers confronted many controversies, for many inventors were engaged in its work, especially the voice transmission using a wire. However, Alexander Graham Bell, a Scottish scientist, and engineer were credited with this invention and patenting, considering it the first functional telephones in March 1876.

Undoubtedly, the telephone was an essential invention for mankind that helped enhance the exchange of information and contributed to the communication revolution. Thus, the telephone can be regarded as the best invention, enabling instant voice communication amongst people worldwide regardless of any distance issue. Moreover, it has revolutionized the entire global communication as well as trade and business considerably.

4. Penicillin

Penicillin is regarded to be a set of antibiotics acquired from Penicillium molds. It was not invented, rather discovered by Alexander Fleming, a Scottish scientist. Due to time, the different methods were also devised in respect of extensive isolation and penicillin production. This work earned Alexander the Nobel Prize in Medicine/Physiology and has protected millions of lives. About one to ten persons suffer from an allergic issue, especially to the antibiotic. It does away with the bacteria and helps prevent the germs from combining a molecule, peptidoglycan, in the wall of a cell, thereby giving it the strength required to remain in the human body. This drug disables the wall of a cell and affecting germs to die, and subsequently enabling the individual to get better from an infection caused by a bacteria.

5. The Internet

The Advanced Research Projects Agency Networks (ARPANET) was the first network that implemented IP/TCP protocol suite in Jan 1983; thereby, either technology got to be the technical base of the internet. At which point, the researchers started amalgamating the “network of networks.” No single person can be credited with the invention of the internet, as it was the endeavor of a large number of researchers, engineers, programmers, and of course, scientists. Undoubtedly, innumerable people put their efforts into developing the internet, but Lawrence, a computer scientist, is often credited in this respect. The internet has become part and parcel of our lives, and without whom, nothing seems complete. The internet has brought about a sea change in every walk of life. It enables people to improve their lifestyles and access things that would not have been accessible previously. One can see the utmost significance of the internet from the United Nations’Nations’ proposal to make it an integral part of fundamental human rights. Thus, the internet has played a vital role in shaping our lifestyles. It would be providing many more platforms in the form of opportunities, particularly in e-commerce, virtual education, and even in the medical field.

These are just a few of the amazing inventions that we have mentioned. The world has witnessed a lot of them. Undoubtedly, these inventions have made life much easier for humans and will continue to facilitate us. It is hard to imagine how life would have been without these inventions.

BENEFITS OF FASTING IN RAMADAN FOR BELIEVERS

0

When we speak about preparing for Ramadan, we also think about ways to improve our good deeds, such as reading more Qur’an and praying more at night. After all, Ramadan is all about optimizing our efforts!

However, we seldom consider the main activity associated with Ramadan: fasting. During Ramadan, we must fast every day, and we should reflect on how beneficial this action is to our hearts, minds, bodies, and, eventually, our relationship with Allah (SWT).

In this article, we are going back to the basic Benefits Of Fasting In Ramadan For Believers.

The Physical Benefits

Fasting lets us take care of our bodies, which Allah has given us as an Amanah (trust). Here are some of the physical health advantages of fasting on a daily basis:

     • It prevents us from obesity and the diseases that come with it.

     • It helps to minimize inflammation.

     • It improves cognitive function and can aid in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.

     • It helps to regulate blood sugar levels by lowering insulin resistance.

     • It improves cardiovascular wellbeing.

     • It has the potential to slow down the aging process and prolong life.

In the end, we fast for Allah’s sake, not to lose weight, prevent heart disease, or because it’s “healthy for us.” So, each time you fast, make the correct intention and alert yourself of it.

 The Mental Benefits

Fasting benefits our psychological health by strengthening our relationship with food.

 Food is one of the most precious gifts that Allah has bestowed upon us. It provides us with the pleasure of sharing a meal with our loved ones, the delight of enticing aromas and delightful tastes, and the enjoyment of artistic expression by cooking and experimenting.

However, our relationship with food has become unbalanced, particularly in this day and age. Nowadays, we eat because we’re lonely, socializing, nervous, or just selfish. We eat fried and sugary foods without thinking about it, then go on strict diets to detox, only to continue the cycle!

 Fasting is an excellent way to change our attitude towards food. During Ramadan, in particular, we:

• Must stop planning our days around mealtimes.

 • Put an end to your materialistic relationship with food.

• Listen attentively to our bodies.

• Keep in mind that food is a necessity.

 • Each time we eat, we should remember Allah.

The Spiritual Benefits     

Fasting, Alhamdulillah, is beneficial to our bodies, minds, and souls! It is a special investment in the next life and helps us spiritually in this life:

  1. It Boosts Our Taqwa

 Taqwa has been interpreted as being aware of Allah, fearing Allah, or simply being pious. It has the deep sense of being alert over our own lives, as if constantly aware that Allah is watching us. As a consequence, we improve as individuals, are less likely to slip into poor habits, and are more willing to seek out the deeds that satisfy Allah!

  • It Leads Us To Jannah

On the day of judgement, we can only imagine what it would be like to be summoned to the gate of Ar-Rayyan (the gate of Jannah). We can’t imagine what it will be like to enter Allah’s Jannah through this doorway. The days of fasting bring us closer to our target.

  • It Comes With Incredible Benefits

Fasting, like many other good deeds, would lead us to Jannah and keep us from Hellfire. But what exactly is the benefit of fasting? What is it that we can only achieve by fasting for Allah’s sake?

According to scholars, the reward of fasting is Allah Himself, because we are sacrificing our own essential needs of food and water for His sake, and He will reward us with Himself in the next life! There is no better ‘time of joy’ than this – it is the pinnacle of achievement.

How To Stay Fit And Feel Healthy

0

Staying fit is becoming harder and harder as years are passing by. In today’s generation, where most people are addicted to their gadgets and social media, it has become quite a challenge to stay fit and feel healthy. This is not just speculation; obesity is growing worldwide and has become a real problem. And after the Covid-19 pandemic, things have gotten even worse. The lockdown has forced even overweight people to stay at home regularly to go to the gym.

Laziness and procrastination, in general, have caused obesity to become such an issue. Some people even think that they can never become fit because of how unhealthy they have become. However, this is not true at all. Anyone can become fit and feel healthy. All you need is determination. If you also want to learn a few tips on staying fit and feeling healthy, keep on reading this article.

Tip 1: Be patient

It is very easy to start working out and changing your diet. The first few days can go by pretty easily. However, the main issue is not beginning to work out or change your diet; it is to maintain your diet and keep working out in the long run. Most people who start working out to stay fit or lose weight stop only after a week or two. This is mainly because they do not see any results. The frustration of not seeing any results makes them wonder if working out is worth it. They lose all their motivation when they start and eventually go back to their unhealthy lifestyle.

This needs to be stopped. Losing weight is not an easy task. If everyone started seeing results this soon, no one would then be obese. All you have to do is be patient. Yes, a tiny portion of people does see results quite early on in their diet change and workout routine. However, this does not mean that every human body works the same. Some people have significant metabolism, which is why they lose weight so quickly. Trust me, sooner or later, you will see results if you remain patient. A few months of patience will grant you results that will satisfy you. In the end, it will all be worth the wait and hard work.

Tip 2: Calculate your calories

I know this may sound like quite a hassle for most of you, but calculating your daily calorie count helps a lot in maintaining your fitness. There are ways in which you can calculate how many maximum calories you can consume per day to reach your goal. You need to be in a calorie deficit for weight loss, and for trying to gain weight, you need to consume more calories than your BMI (Body Mass Index). You can easily find tons of BMI calculators online. To know how many calories each of your meal has, you can use apps such as Myfitnesspal. Myfitnesspal is probably the most popular app for calculating calories. You can even scan a barcode in Myfitnesspal to get every piece of information about the product you are eating. It will feel a hassle at first, but you will eventually get used to this.

Tip 3: Change your diet

This seems like an obvious thing, but for a large majority of people, it doesn’t. Many people who try to become fit will start working out daily and will start going on walks and runs. They will work really hard on trying to achieve their goal, but they don’t ever see much difference. One of the reasons for this is that they don’t change their diet. Unless people start eating healthier foods in healthier amounts, they will not see much difference. People need to understand that working out does not necessarily need you to eat even more food than before. Instead, it would be best if you only ate in sufficient amounts. A lot of the time, people eat even when they are not hungry at all. Eating out of boredom is a real issue, and a lot of people go through this without even realizing it. If you are reading this article and have just realized that you may be one of those who eat out of boredom, now is the time to change your diet routine.

Tip 4: Get enough sleep

Getting enough sleep is key to staying fit and feeling healthy. You cannot feel healthy in any way if you sleep any less than 6-8 hours. Get 6 hours of daily sleep at the very least. If you sleep any less than that, you will feel exhausted for the rest of the day. Yes, coffee can help you remain active, but that isn’t the best way to remain healthy. Instead, try to sleep early and wake up early in the morning. There is no better feeling than waking up early in the morning with adequate sleep. When you wake up early, you will also have a lot of time that you can use to do different things. Some people go out jogging in the morning while others workout or do a simple exercise. You can utilize this time to workout as well.

If you have trouble waking up early and sleep for too long, try this trick. Instead of keeping your alarm beside you, you can keep your alarm a bit out of your reach. Keep it where you will have to come out of your bed to close it. This way, you can solve your problem of constantly sleeping after turning off the alarm again and again. Try this trick and see the results for yourself.

Tip 5: Drink a lot of water

Drinking a lot of water is key to losing weight and staying fit. As we all know, our bodies are mostly made up of water. Thus, in order for it to function properly, it needs sufficient water. Our whole system, which includes all the organs, cells, and tissues, cannot work healthy unless you drink a lot of water. Make sure you stay hydrated throughout the day by drinking fresh water almost every hour.

There are a lot of ways in which drinking water makes you stay fit and feel healthy. It helps you get rid of all the toxins and other wastes in your body. Moreover, it helps make your spine and joints stronger. Dehydration causes your body to go through headaches, feel fatigued, and even affects your mental health.

So how much water should you drink per day? Most people struggle to calculate the exact amount of water they should drink in a day. Some studies suggest that everyone should be drinking around 6-8 glasses of water per day. If you don’t know how much water you should be drinking per day, follow this study, and you should be doing just enough. Don’t slack off when it comes to drinking water. Drink between exercises or whenever you go out of your room.

Tip 6: Do not go the crash dieting route

Sometimes people don’t have the patience to wait for months to see their workout and diet results. Therefore, these people take extreme measures to lose some weight. They start skipping meals and go on a very high-calorie deficit diet. Although they do lose weight in quite a short amount of time, this comes with heavy side-effects. You will never see a doctor recommend to anyone for crash dieting. This is because they know exactly how rough and dangerous it is to crash a diet. We all know that taking extreme measures in anything is never going to be good. What crash dieting will do is slow your metabolism heavily. Therefore, you will gain weight very quickly after you are done with the diet.

Moreover, your body will be devoid of the natural nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Your immune system will be damaged, and you will be at the risk of getting dehydrated and sometimes even cardiac stress. In conclusion, a crash diet is definitely not a healthy way to get fit.

There is just no point in trying to stay fit if you use crash dieting as a method to lose weight. Most people who crash diets go back to their normal diets after achieving their goal and gain even more weight than before. Adopt a diet that you will be able to continue even after achieving your weight goal. Make your diet a routine and your workouts a habit. You will never be able to stay healthy for a long time if you don’t do so. Lose weight sensibly and healthily.

Tip 7: Start having fun in your exercises

One of the reasons why most people either quit exercising or don’t bother doing so is because they feel like they are forcing them to do all the exercises. Workouts can never be fun if you treat them like this boring thing that you need to do. Yes, exercises and workouts are very tiring and require insane amounts of hard work, but you will only feel this way for the first few days. You may not even be able to perform some of the exercises on the first day; however, don’t give up just yet. Try it again the next day and keep trying until you finally do it. The satisfaction you will get from finally being able to pull off such a challenging exercise will be worth all the hard work. This will give you even more motivation, and you will start having fun in your exercises. Set goals in your exercises and try to achieve them no matter what. You will eventually love exercising after you see the results it produces.

Another way of exercising while having fun is to involve your friends. Humans are very sociable beings and we love chatting and discussing things with other people, especially the people you love. You can motivate your friend to start working out, and then both of you can join the gym. You can go out on walks and runs with your friend and talk to them the entire time. You will not even notice that you would’ve covered several miles of walking. Both you and your friend will push each other to stay motivated, and therefore, you will get used to exercising in a very fun way. If you absolutely despise exercising and working out, try playing some sports. Playing sports such as Football and Basketball includes running a lot. The competitiveness of playing these sports with your friend will push you to play better, and thus, you will get fit without even noticing.

Tip 8: Start slowly

As told before, many people quit trying to stay fit because they feel like this is just too much of a hassle for them. They start off very motivated and work very hard in the beginning. They would even change their diets completely in an instant. However, this is not the best way to try to get healthy. Instead, because they work so hard and change everything drastically, they end up quitting after not seeing results. This is why it is very important to change things in your life gradually. It would be best if you started changing your daily routine slowly, changing one thing at a time. When you change your diet slowly, you will feel much more comfortable, and you wouldn’t have to go through all the tough days that those people who change things drastically go through.

Conclusion:

Achieving your goals is definitely possible. Anyone can get fit and healthy no matter how you are. It is never too late to start working on yourself. Go ahead and follow all of these tips and start changing your lifestyle now. The earlier you start working on yourself, the easier it will be. Wasting time would only make things even harder for you. Good luck with staying fit and feeling healthy. 

TOP 12 TECHNOLOGY TRENDS TO FOLLOW IN 2021

0

A lot has changed this year. We have got a worldwide pandemic; we are all stuck working from home. As every industry is grappling with the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, technology has been maintaining its pace from broad acceptance of telemedicine to the remote workforce.

 The techdevelopments that gained ground in 2020 range from edge AI5G, and advanced artificial intelligence to growing momentum for next-generation talent management and technology that focuses on sustainability.

High tech, financial institutions, health, goods, and media are all seeing new opportunities as a result of the digital shift since 2020.

The Covid-19 turmoil has intensified global digital transformation due to necessity. Keeping up with fast-changing technology, trends are crucial as businesses rush to create new digital capabilities to establish agility and restructure for the post-pandemic environment. The year 2021 will be vital for the enhancement and redesigning of technologies, particularly those that gained popularity during the year of social distancing and lockdowns.

It is very important to stay in touch with the current tech world to analyze the changing scenario of our living. It is also a good way to make our lives effective by following technology trends. So why not have a look at the appealing and emerging technology trends. Here are the Top 12 Technology Trends To Follow in 2021:

12. Green Tech              

While 2020 was all about combatting the Covid-19 pandemic, 2021 may see a reenergized focus on another big matter, namely climate change.

Ironically, the pandemic has activated much required climate-friendly actions. Industries have expanded their utilization of digital devices, lowering the need for employees to commute and travel.

“We believe governments will use the momentum of 2020 to pave the way for a green recovery in 2021 in the wake of the pandemic’s destructiveness. Digital technologies will play a major role in contributing to effective solutions for other energy-intensive sectors, influencing consumer and producer behavior,” predicts Sandberg.

Not only will we see climate laws come into action, but AI will also, on a bigger scale than ever before, enable brilliant energy solutions. In cities all around the world, AI will be carried out to optimize power consumption in data centers or mobile base stations. It will enable us to make renewable energy, such as wind energy more predictable, and smarten up cities by optimizing transport and foreseeing the quality of air.

Outside the cities, new automated robots will act in the fields, helping farmers striving to find enough farming laborers. Automatic weeding with machine vision will facilitate the use of pesticides, thus contributing to decreasing the environmental impact of agriculture.

11. Total Experience (TX)

To turn the company result, Total experience blends customer experience, employee experience, and user experience. The aim is to enhance the overall experience at the intersection of all of these components, from technologyto staff to consumers and users.

Was There Any Fair Leader Throughout The Course Of History Of Pakistan?

0

INTRODUCTION

In the course of Pakistan’s 73-year history, there have been several different attempts radically to change Pakistan by three civilians (one at present) and three military regimes. Yet, they all have not been able to win the nation’s hearts, and the new regime has also been seemingly failed. Every single one of them found their governments ingested by the elites. They had hoped to displace and engaged in the same patronage politics as the regimes that they had overthrown. None could find a new mass party staffed by professional politicians and ideologically committed activists rather than local feudal and urban bosses plus their followers. In this post, we shall compare the achievements of different governments of Pakistan to find out: Was there any fair leader throughout Pakistan’s history?

A Brief Look At The Different Leaders of Pakistan

General Ayyub Khan and Pervaiz Musharraf were once the military rulers from 1958 to 69 and 1999 to 2008, respectively. Both took Kamal Atta Turk as their role model, the greatest secular modernizing nationalist and founder of the Turkish Republic. General Zia ul Haq, a military ruler from 1977 to 1988, took a very different course trying to unite and develop Pakistan through enforced endurance to a stricter and more stiff form of Islam merged with Pakistani patriotism. Then there was Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, founder of the Pakistani people’s party and Pakistan’s civilian ruler. In the 1970s, he tried to rally the Pakistani Masters behind him with a program of anti-elitist economic populism mixed with Pakistani nationalism.

Democracy in Pakistan

Pakistan’s young democracy started in 2008 when Pakistan People’s Party won the elections. In  2013, it was the first time throughout the history of Pakistan that power was transferred from one Democratic Party to another. And the same thing happened in 2018. Since the inception of Pakistan, everyone has tried to make their tenure impactful in different ways.

Indeed, except for Bhutto none tried seriously to curtail the clans. However, after a short while, Bhutto’s PPP too had ceased to be the radical party of its early years and had become dependent on the same old local clans and local patronage.

But here the questions arise: Was there any fair leader throughout the history of Pakistan? Was there any leader who was able to bear the burdens of a suffering country like Pakistan?  Indeed, except Quaid e Azam( founder of Pakistan), a couple of these types of leaders might be honest and loyal to Pakistan, but with few imperfections. Following are the two most loved leaders throughout the history of Pakistan.

1. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (1971-77)

Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto is the most popular personality in Pakistan’s history. It is commonly said that after partition, Pakistan has seen only one leader or loyal man in the shape of Bhutto. ZA Bhutto approved his correct charismatic personality by forcing the dictatorial regime to step back from office with immobilized popular power. Many reforms took place under Bhutto’s regime, such as bureaucratic reforms, first and the second phase of land reforms, economic reforms, and Constitution(most significant achievement of his). He also developed strategies to curtail the Army. Because at that time, Army was one of the immense powers in Pakistan, and he wanted them to practice their actual job only. He also contributed to the formation of the Para Military Force against the establishment.

However, along with his many significant contributions that made Pakistan economically stable, he was also one of the people behind East Pakistan’s separation. He had made many errors. To preserve his government, he agreed to give up East Pakistan. He did not like opposition parties at all. He was accused many times of suppressing the voice of opposition leaders.

But all in all, he was a great leader in the history of Pakistan. He took many measures to fulfil the given promises and was successful to much extent. But at the same time, parochial elite class and establishment hampered him from practicing his ideas. These prestige-loving classes collaborated against Mr. Bhutto. But he thoroughly succeeded in formulating an independent foreign policy of Pakistan.

2. Pervaiz Musharraf (1999-2008)

During his years in power, Pakistan maintained consistent and profitable policies of liberalization, deregulation and privatization. Financial recovery, institutional reforms and promising administration were Pakistan’s established prerogatives. For financial recovery, the government sought a two-pronged policy of securing macro-economic strength and initiating structural reforms for self-sufficient advancement. As a result, the economy had improved at a typical rate of 7% per annum in four years. Its growth reached a record degree of 9% in 2004-2005. Growth of substantial scale manufacturing which was 3.6% during 1999-2000, documented an average boost of 11.31 % per annum from 2000-2007. Foreign Exchange reserves had passed over the US$ 16 billion marks. Per capital, revenue had improved from $526 (1999-2000) to $925 (2006-2007). GDP upswing, which was 3.9% in 1999-2000, grew at an average rate of 6% per annum during the interval from 2000-2007. Total GDP, which was approximately Rs 2,938.4 billion (1998-1999), registered a tremendous spike in 8 years and ranged between Rs 3,826 billion (1999-2000) and Rs 9,970 billion (2006-2007).

But apart from that, like everyone, Musharraf also had come across with failures. Many bad things happened in Musharraf’s tenure, the martyrdom of Akbar Bugti and Lal Masjid event, mishandling of Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry case, the proclamation of emergency, and victimization of opponents, the martyrdom of brave Benazir Bhutto and shrewdness of Asif Ali Zardari, etc. These all incidents persuaded Pervez Musharraf to tender his resignation on 18th August 2008 to avoid the impeachment process’s humiliation.

However, because of his contributions, the world started to recognize Pakistan as a religiously tolerant and financially stable country. He was the first military ruler in the history of Pakistan who did not impose Martial law. He wanted to shape the country with immense pluralism, equality, freedom and literacy.

CONCLUSION

From the above facts, it can be concluded that Musharraf was the all-time loyal leader to the country with relatively fewer errors. If it were not for Musharraf, Pakistan would have still been in the shadows of immense economic crisis, no freedom of speech and fake accusers of blasphemy. Along with that, he was a great ambassador of Pakistan. He represented Pakistan in many events. He was famous for his vehement speeches and humor.

Interesting International Cricket Records That Seem Impossible To Get Broken

0

Cricket is constantly evolving as a sport. There have been many changes in cricket over the past few decades. Some rules have changed in the past few years, and it has made cricket an even more competitive sport.

This competitiveness has made it harder for professional Cricketers to break the previous records set by amazing players. In this article, we will be discussing some of these interesting records that seem almost unbreakable.

1. Most sixes in an Over:

Herschelle Gibbs: 'That was my only bloody wish, to win a World Cup' | The  Cricket Monthly | ESPN Cricinfo

The record for most sixes in an Over in International Cricket is six sixes. Only two people hold this record. Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh. Herschelle Gibbs struck 6 sixes in an over while playing against the Netherlands. He became the first person to achieve such a feat in International Cricket. It seemed like such a thing could never be achieved ever again.

However, in the same year, Yuvraj Singh equaled the record for the most sixes in an over, playing against England in the 2007 T-20 World Cup. No player has been able to break this record ever since. Alex Hales hit 6 sixes in an over, but that was not in International Cricket. 6 sixes do seem the limit, but it is not.

We all know that there is a possibility of a no-ball being balled, which could help break this record. So seven sixes in an over are possible, but it would need quite the luck to pull this off. Thus, this interesting record seems impossible to break.

2. Most wickets in an inning:

Jim Laker: His Story, Technique & Incredible Nineteen-For | Wisden Almanack

There are only two Cricketers in history who have managed to take all 10 wickets in an inning—England’s Jim Laker in 1956 and India’s Anil Kumble in 1999. Anil Kumble’s 10 wicket haul is more famous since it was more recent. In a test match against Pakistan in Delhi, Anil Kumble bowled the whole Pakistani team out in a single inning. Kumble’s right arm leg-spin was just too much for the Pakistani batsmen to handle that day. Not even a single batsman that day could manage to survive Kumble’s wrath. No one has been able to break or even equal the record ever since. And it seems this record will never get broken since the maximum number of wickets a player can get is 10.

3. Most wickets in Test Cricket:

534 Days To Go – Murali's Magic Milestone

Test Cricket is all about patience and tactics that work out in the long term. When compared to T20 and ODI, Test Cricket is the most challenging platform. This is especially the case for bowlers. Bowlers have to bowl for entire days without getting wickets. The batsmen’s defensive approach in Test Cricket results in a lot of blender bowlers losing their patience. Test Cricket drains the energy of the bowlers. This is one reason why many International Cricketers prefer to play ODI and T-20 over Test Cricket. To take one wicket is a great deal in Test Cricket.

However, to take 800 wickets like Muttiah Muralitharan seems almost impossible. And over the course of time, cricket has become even harder for the bowlers. This makes it even harder to break Muttiah Muralitharan’s record. You would have to take wickets constantly in every single test match you play to break this record. With the current state of bowlers, who do not like playing in Test Cricket, this record seems impossible to break.

4. Most runs by a Batsman in an inning:

On This Day 16 Years Ago Brian Lara Made History by Scoring 400 Runs -  EssentiallySports

Players are given great praises for scoring 100 runs or a century in an inning. Scoring a century is not that common for a player. Scoring 200 runs in an inning is even harder and even rarer. These special double-centuries are remembered for years. Triple-century or 300 runs in an inning is extremely rare. Not everyone can score 300 runs in an inning. There have been very few players who have reached this milestone. Such innings are remembered for a very long time.

However, the record for the most runs in an inning is held by none other than the great West Indian Batsman, Brian Charles Lara. Lara scored an unbelievable quadruple-century or 400 runs in an inning vs. England in 2004. Lara broke the previous record of 380 runs in an inning by Australia’s Matthew Hayden. Nowadays, such a record would seem impossible to break because cricket has gotten much fast-paced, and teams are now ready to take risks to win the Test match.

Most teams now declare an inning if they feel like they could bowl the other team out before they could chase the target. Therefore, innings nowadays do not usually last longer than a couple of days. Not to mention that scoring 400 runs in an inning is an arduous task in itself. 

5. Highest career batting average:

Ashley Mallett on the young Don Bradman | The Cricket Monthly | ESPN  Cricinfo

Having a high batting average shows how good a player is. Most players celebrate if they have an average higher than 50. To have an average above 60 is even better, and only the very best players in the world can achieve such a status.

However, there is only one player in the history of cricket that could achieve an average unmatched by everyone else. That player is Australia’s, Don Bradman. Bradman had an average of 99.94. The difference between Don Bradman’s average and the second place’s average is greater than the difference between the second and the 50th place. Bradman played 52 test matches in his career and scored 29 hundred and 13 50’s. He had a high-score of 334 runs. Ironically, Don Bradman got out for 0 runs in his very last innings. If he had scored even a few runs, he would have been the first and only player with an average of over 100.

Unfortunately, Don Bradman did not get a chance to bat twice in his last test match since Australia won quite easily. This record seems unbreakable in today’s climate.

Conclusion:

These were just five of the many interesting International Cricket records that seem unbreakable. Honorable mentions include AB Devilliers fastest Century and Shoaib Akhtar’s fastest delivery bowled. Even though all of these records seem very tough, they are still not completely impossible to break. The old record for the fastest century held by Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi also seemed unbreakable once. Although it would require something very special to break these records
