Wichhada Watan - Memories of Mianwali - my parted homeland

By Harish Chander Nakra

"Wichhada Watan is all about life in Mianwali in Pre-Partition India: graphically presented and feelingly evoked , with superb touches  of incidental humour and pathos. People who would rather know about life  as it was and people  as they were -rather about  dates, battles and politics of the times - will find Wichhada Watan and extremely absorbing piece of work" - H.C Nakra more...

Find a Mianwalian - Project


Mianwali Online has  specially developed a software where people belonging to Mianwali would enter their details thus forming a directory of Mianwalians. Once the directory's size becomes reasonably large it will help Mianwalians to locate their old friends from Mianwali now living anywhere in the world.  


Mianwalians are present in almost every city of Pakistan . They can get assistance from their district fellows in Pakistan in finding a job, expanding their businesses, finding a doctor, selecting a university and so on. But for that to happen they all must know each other.


So the first step is to enter information about yourself and others you know in the Mianwali Directory HERE 


Soon there will be the facility " Looking For...." where the visitors will leave details of Mianwalians they are looking for and others knowing about them will be providing the details. Please send your suggestions to 

Note for  Females : If females are joining the forum or chat, they  can use pseudo names e.g "speaker"," mickey mouse" etc.etc. The email addresses of course need to be genuine ones, for receiving emails  (hope real names are not being used as part of email addresses)

Steel Mill for Mianwali

                               Kalabagh Mini Steel Mill 


PIDC selected a site (Kalabagh) with about 80% raw material available within 11 miles . The steel mill based on the Kalabagh iron ore that was to be set up  at Kalabagh in 1956 but was taken to Karachi where it is now making steel not from Pakistani ore but from imported ore( ore contains 66% waste and 33% iron) . In protest the illustrious Chairman of PIDC, Mr. Ghulam Farooq, resigned.

 In 1956, M/S Krupp of Germany offered to set up a steel mill based on Kalabagh iron ore, coal and most other minerals available within about 11 miles. In June 1966, another German company M/S Salzgitter produced in Germany 5,000 tonnes of quality steel from 15,000 tonnes of Kalabagh iron ore in the presence of some international experts, and sold it to Volkswagon. Some European banks offered loans for this project, which confirms technical and financial viability of the project. Engr. M.Akram Niazi has a lot more to say.
