    I consider myself lucky to have come across one of such heroins in very recent past. when i reached national bank branch located at model colony, karachi to make a bank draft; half an hour was left in bank’s closing time. the bank staff efficiently handled our case and after depositing money & filling the required form we were waiting to receive our bank draft. there is a lady in bank staff who was present there when we entered the bank and she was told by a colleague of her about our bank draft being in process. but despite knowing that she locked the bank draft ledgers in drawer and silently went out of the bank to take her day off and started waiting for bus right in front of bank door. when she was not found in bank; bank staff even went out to her to ask her to come back or to give them access to the bank draft ledger. but our heroin bravely refused to cooperate with them and flee away in a running bus. As a result bank staff had to apologize to us due to being unable to process our case. After experiencing that my opinion is that our organizations may consider some ordinary guys for employment opportunities despite of taking so called ”affirmative action” in favor of heroins since no matter what heroins also have limitations and in most cases more than guys.

    An example of the only five women working in Shigar, Baltistan can be seen here:

    It’s a documentary film about a unique teaching garden project. These women had to face a lot of resistance from their community when they first stepped out of their houses to work alongside men. They are interns for the AKCSP and their work includs mapping the town of Shigar and landscaping the Abruzzi School’s teaching garden.
