Popularity and Ignorance of Jackal
‘Two hundred and fifty children of Government Primary School # 2 located in Kazim Abad area of Nakbund Kohat attend their classes under a tree, and bring bottles filled with water to drink in school because no drinking water facility is available in the school,’ master Sikandar Shah has said. Clever school master Sikandar Shah had saved his wheat crop from rain and was laying on a cot in Hujra Jalal Khan owned by Nazim Nakbund Mr. Farooq Muhammad Khan and his brothers with ease, when I had reached their with Nazim Nakbund in the evening on Tuesday. In Pakistani villages farmers lack storage facility, after cutting the wheat crop they leave it in the field and when rain fall occurs wheat becomes soaked with water, in the sun farmers dry the wheat again but obviously quality of the wheat and its taste becomes adversely affected. Jolly master Sikander Shah is also a good cook, once British diplomats when came for hunting with Naeem Khan brother of Nazim Nakbund Mr. Farooq Khan for hunting, master had cooked food for them in the rest house, he is keenly interested in visiting Great Britain and USA, when another villager present in the Hujra had told master Sikandar Shah that he is well known person in Nakbund area but he by himself can not recognize all of the people living in Nakbund, master had abruptly replied that like jackal he is well known but does not know anyone by himself. Peasants for 340 kg wheat cut the wheat crop for feudal of their area, men and women both cut the wheat crop in Nakbund together, and their children play under the tree near the crop field. Interestingly no modern equipment for cutting of wheat crop is under use in Nakbund village, while we were gossiping in Hujra Jalal Khan with villagers, suddenly sky became cloudy and for next half an hour heavy rainfall was witnessed in the area, on the way back from Nakbund I have seen bundles of wheat plants soaked with water still scattered in the fields, due to lack of proper storage facilities this wastage occurs almost every village of Pakistan, my own hunch is that the moment our farmers became able to erect storage facilities Pakistan will definitely become self sufficient in respect of wheat, which our government is compelled to import every year.
