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.

    Danial Shah,
    I have been watching your efforts and I really appreciate, I have something to say though.
    I have been to Paniala many times and like going there whenever I get an opportunity. My friends there have shown me such awesome natural scenes, I will cherish whole life. I am also a wanderer and like sightseeing places , but have hardly seen so wonderful sights even in Europe, believe me.

    Two things:-
    1,The name Paniala, as was told by many Panialvies to me originates from , “PANI WALA” meaning place of water, which turned into Paniala, significantly so, because this beautiful place was the only place with natural springs of water in the area and about 40 kms around there was a desert without water. The surrounding villages used to collect water on camel and donkeys from this place and hence the name Paniala.

    2, Your beautiful snapshots of Paniala are mostly covering the north side of the village. Kindly favor us to shoot all around Paniala and I am sure onlookers will be fascinated.

    This is my opinion about the place which haunts me in my solitude. I plan another visit in autumn if I could.
    You are great to have introduced such a wonderful place to people with aesthetics.

        Great job Danial, indeed this is second time someone exposing the beauties of Paniala to national level. Last time we have seen such effort by PTV documentary. I belong to small village, Wanda Feroz 6km east of Paniala.
        While visiting Paniala I invite you, come to wanda feroz (khanani) from where we will go to the peek of Paniala Mountain called Shirina and vertical peek of Kutti Kamar. I want these spots to be captured by your camera.
