Wallpaper for October 2010 from Paniala, Pakistan
October is going busy and it was really difficult for me to choose wallpaper for this month. So i decided to put on a wallpaper from my jeep trip to Paniala back in summers 2009 since I have lots of memories attached with that trip. So this month is dedicated to my journey to “Paniala”
Paniala is a small village located in the north of district D.I. Khan of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa about 55 km away from D I Khan and approx 300 Km from provincial capital Peshawar. The Link Road (also known as Gilloti Road) from main Peshawar Road that connects with Paniala is of about 18 km.
The name “Paniala” originated from “Panjh Naala” means 5 Naalas stemming from “OOBO SIR” (in Pashto) means “head of water” and then combines into one form. The water is then supplied to whole of the village and nearby towns for feeding and cultivating the fields. And then from passage of time the name Panjh Naala changed in to “Paniala”.
The green grassland comprises sandy area and a population of 120,000 citizens. The inhabitant comprises Marwats, Khels, Hashmis and Qureshis. Local language spoken is Pashto with soft and sweet dialect. The prominent shrine of Haji Baba and two important grave of Sahabis (RA) are also situated.
Famous fruits of the town are Mangoes and Dates. “Dhakki” is one of the famous and delicious amongst all dates and is a major part of export.
The famous nearby picnic spot is the mountainous hilly region of Sheikh Badin that comprises lush green forest, an old nonfunctioning post office and police station of British time.
