Parsan Karimabad valley lacking basic facilities
According to media news Pakistan celebrated education and Malala
day with the hope that the government will provide equal education
opportunities for everyone. The government has also launched a four
year literacy programme under which more than three million
children of poor families, especially girls, will get free
education in Pakistan. Unfortunately, despite declining graph of
education system, the government is just doing cosmetic steps to
satisfy people. Original conditions of education are far from ideal
Education is the response to the challenge of the cosmic creative
force. Response must equal challenge, otherwise the individual and
hence the society faces stagnation decay and disintegration.
Chitral is an administrative district in the extreme north of KPK
Province of Pakistan. There are many educational institutions
working in Chitral imparting general education but no technical and
vocational institute is operating both in private and government.
The district has 98 per cent literacy rate, the highest in the NWFP.
There are over 600 primary schools for boys and girls in Chitral
But some of the villages are still facing educational problems. One
the valley is parsan karimabad .Although parsan has an outstanding
performance in education. Our encouraging aspect of the situation
is that we are in 2ndposition as compare to other villages of
Chitral, having a literacy rate of 91%. There are govt schools but
none of them are at secondary level and students have to travel a
huge distance from parsan to susoom.
Recently We came across destructive floods and earthquakes, yet the
most heart wrenching incident occurred on March 19, 2016. We lost
our little school going souls who were swallowed by snow avalanche
while they were returning back to homes after attempting a
matriculation papers. No one knew that they had parted from their
families in the morn to never return back!
although it was hardly two or three hours paper that made them go
through those risky and several spans snow covered hills, or the
lack of examination center near, and lack of board BISEP
management and lack and dull motion of secretariat education in
Chitral that drew them very close to the famished mouth of death.
We know not; what we know is, we have lost the innocent souls! This
all happen due to far distance, lack of availability of secondary
school and lack of examination Centre in parsan. Enrolment with
education institutions is fairly unequal in our area. But still
after the parsan valley awaits progress and prosperity of the
My humble suggestion and request to government functionaries,
public representatives is that we should not indulge in an
unnecessary point scoring. I am sure you will agree with me that
the problems connected with education business are highly complex
and are multiplying exponentially day by day as the run-of-the-mill
performance shown by all those associated with this important
department in one capacity or the other has miserably failed to
produce the desired results.
It is a time to awake the government functionaries, public
representatives of Chitral to make a possible measure &take
initiative toward karimabad valley especially in parsan valley.
Help a valley to more furnish and build a secondary level school
for parsanian, For upcoming years govt and BISEP should have to
conduct the examination Centre some were in parsan in order to
minimize future uncertainty. Education is the key to development. A
country cannot develop economically unless her literacy rate is
