BKS Swabi, Pabini

Class 7th


My father runs a general store in our locality while my mother is a housewife. I was admitted in Baacha Khan School in 4th grade where I found a platform to present my abilities.

As a student of Baacha Khan School Pabini, Swabi, I was one amongst the 12 selected participants out of hundreds of contestants from both India and Pakistan in painting competition for Aghaz e Dosti Peace calendar 2017.

In the painting competition, I drew a pigeon as an emblem of peace and harmony between the flags of Pakistan and India. I did not know that my idea would be this much admired and appreciated. I was elevated and overtaken with excitement when I saw the feedback and response from all around. Not only from my own country but the neighboring country India as well

I owe my success to my teachers who had been cooperative and encouraging throughout. I still remember how relieved I felt when I saw those genuine and sincere expressions on their faces when I was being awarded and when my painting was chosen for peace calendar 2017.

I strongly believe in the Baacha Khan’s philosophy of non violence. I think war is not the solution to both the countries’ problems.

Pigeons are a symbol of Peace. Through my drawing, I wanted to convey how common citizens like us want an end to war and enmity. My art piece is an epitome of harmony, love and mutual understanding.
