The game has become a large part of people’s lives. Since the early 20th century, polo has been played every summer in this part of the country.Before deciding which teams will participate in the tournament, preliminary matches are held both in Chitral and Gilgit. The final teams are selected based on their overall performance. The local jury chooses only the best, most hard-working, and dedicated players.Until now, hundreds to thousands of polo matches have been held. It would not be wrong to say that polo has become a prominent Pakistani sport. The game was played for the first time in Persia in the 6th century. From there, it spread to Arabia, Tibet, China, Japan, and many other parts of the world.In Pakistan, Shandur Top is the only place where polo matches are held in their purest form. The three-day Shandur Polo Festival has steadily developed into a massive annual celebration.

INFINITY


Being a born again Christian at a young age is quite tormenting and challenging. People of every religion can attest to this. Many young people would suggest that being religious is 'uncool'.Its said that if you bring up your children to believing in God, even if they diverge along the way they will finally retrace their parental footsteps. In my case, I was brought up in a family where my grandfather was a priest, my dad a church elder, and my mother a women's honcho. Growing up in such a family made Christianity inevitable for me and my siblings.Challenges presented themselves when I became a teenager and natural curiosity grew in my soul, as it often happens to teens. My desire to try new things ate me up but my ego turned me desperate. How could I afford not to experience some of these activities? My self-esteem was dwindling, believing that partying, drugs, and being sexually intimate were 'cool'.I ended up giving up living the 'cool' side of life. I started being friends with members of the opposite sex with who I could not have been intimate before marriage as it is a sin.After my teenage years, I started perceiving life from a different angle. I stopped focusing on being 'cool' and I got serious with life. I 'manned up'! I turned to the God my parents introduced me.

WORLD


On April 16, Turkey held a historic and controversial referendum brought forward by the governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), aiming to approve 18 amendments to the Turkish Constitution. These amendments were primed to give Turkey's current President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, sweeping powers, including merging the office of Prime Minister with the presidency, giving the President more control over judicial appointments, and making him the only official capable of announcing a state of emergency and dismissing parliament.President Erdogan rode a wave of nationalism following a series of terrorist attacks that have recently plagued the country, in addition to an attempted military coup last July, to justify this referendum. The vote ultimately came down in favour of the Yes vote with 51.41%, while the No vote received 48.59%. This is far below the 55% threshold that Erdogan was predicting. The large metropolitan centres of Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir all rejected the proposals.Since the referendum's outcome was publicised, several videos have appeared disputing the validity of Erdogan's victory. One shows a village leader putting numerous voting slips in a ballot at once, while another chooses 'Yes' on three different pieces of paper. To top it all, a member of the Council of Europe observer mission said that up to 2.5 million votes could have been manipulated. The Yes vote's margin is 1,124,091 votes. President Erdogan is, of course, rejecting these claims and his government has proclaimed that foreign observers lack objectivity on the matter.The Turkish government has wasted no time shortly after the referendum to heighten tensions with Cyprus, performing military exercises off the southwest coast of the island, near natural gas fields that have recently been discovered and to which Turkey is attempting to lay claim.
