“To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”
Greetings dear Wanderer,
Welcome to Project Pakistan blog.
Project Pakistan aims to be a mosaic of positive imagery for my country Pakistan.
The year is 2011 and with all the negative International news coming out of Pakistan in recent times, my goal is simple, I aim to share the other half of the coin for all my readers. All and any positive news coming out of Pakistan will be shared.
From pictures, videos, articles, to international or local accomplishments , all will be gathered under “Project Pakistan.”
This is a lifelong commitment of changing damaged Pakistan’s perception and I hope Project Pakistan’s mosaic will achieve its objective of “Pushing CTRL+Z , one Mind at a time”
I thank you for the time to read and visit this blog. Share my message with your family and friends, dont be afraid to leave a comment or share a story you feel moved by and lastly lets ALL push “CTRL+Z , one Mind at a time”
Images from space confirm Pakistan earthquake created a new island
We now have confirmation from space that a new island has formed off the coast of Pakistan. Yesterday, NASA sent their Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite to check on the situation, and it took the picture on the right above (and below). The island is most likely a pile of mud from the ocean floor that erupted as a mud volcano shortly after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck northwestern Pakistans taken by the Landsat 8 satellite on April 17. The region has seen mud volcanoes in the past, including one spied by satellites in 2011.
The volcanoes form when mud and or water is squeezed out of the sediment on the ocean floor, which may have been caused by the earthquake in this most recent instance.
