Very nice. Tree's have a very good effect on human psyche. We need more parks are playgrounds in Pakistan as IK says. I am keen to see all those VIP houses converted to public places like libraries and parks where we can all relax and enjoy ourselves. Haters will hate, IK is on the right track as always.

صرف دو کام جوجلد سے جلد ہونے چاہيں پہلا يہ کہ کرپشن کے خلاف سخت قانون سازي کي جائے اور دوسرا يہ کہ بلدياتي انتخابات ہوں جو آئين کي دفعہ باسٹھ اور تيرسٹھ کي حقيقي روح کے ساتھ منعقد کرائے جائيں اگر يہ دو کام ہوگئے تو اسي فيصد گندگي خيبر پختونخواہ سے ختم ہوجائے گي اور صوبہ حيرت انگيز طور پر خوشحالي کي راہ پر گامزن ہوجائے گا

Planting trees is desperately required. On my recent trip to Naran Valley, I was shocked to see how the trees were vanishing due to timber mafia

We need these trees in forests as they help in landslides as well. If all the trees are cu without any new plantation, we will eventually run out of wood
