Tracing the Evolution of Banking in Sukkur: From Bambi to NBP

 Sukkur's banking history began with the establishment of Bambi Bank on January 27th, which later became known as the Imperial Bank of India. Initially operating from a leased property owned by Saith Memon near the SSP residence and the former Powerhouse, the bank eventually relocated across from St. Mary’s High School into a modest limestone-plastered building. President location is Wapda Customer’s care

During the British Raj, an attempted heist involving a tunnel dug towards the bank was foiled, and the culprits were apprehended. Following the partition, the institution was rebranded as the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP), which was officially formed in 1949. In recent decades, a new, elegant edifice for the NBP was constructed at the same location, housing the main branch on the ground floor and the State Bank of Pakistan on the upper level.

Prior to Pakistan's independence, Sukkur was home to several other banks. The Arabian Cooperative Bank was founded in 1921 opposite Lux Park, while the Punjab National Bank and the Central Bank both opened their doors in 1935 along Bandar Road. The Sindh Provisional Cooperative Bank Ltd started operations in 1938 on Frere Road. These institutions, along with the local branch of the Imperial Bank of India, which had connections to John Maynard Keynes' work on Indian currency and finance, have since ceased operations or been closed.

Unveiling the Stone Age: A Deep Dive into the Rohri Hills’ Archaeological Wonders

 In the mid-1970s, the Cambridge Archaeological Expedition undertook an initial examination of the Rohri Hills' Paleolithic locations. Their research indicated that these hills were a prime quarry for chert, essential for crafting the Harappan culture's parallel-sided blades between 2300 and 1750 BC.

Ancient tools and artifacts from the Rohri Hills’ Paleolithic sites.

The Rohri Hills' southern tip, adjacent to Chancha Baloch village and a mere four kilometers from Kot Diji's pre-Harappan site, hosted a prominent Paleolithic site. This site, spanning roughly 5,000 square meters and nestled among dunes in a predominantly sandy locale, yielded a treasure trove of Middle and Upper Paleolithic relics and manufacturing waste.
Moreover, a significant number of production floors were discovered near a settlement called Nawab Punjabi. Unearthing these manufacturing sites, which chronicle the entire Stone Age epoch, has enriched our comprehension of Sindh's prehistoric civilizations.

Black and White Tales: The Hoverfly Mystery Captured on Camera

A Hoverfly mimicking a hummingbird, with distinctive black and white tail, captured on a cellphone camera.

Greetings, everyone! Recently, I encountered a fascinating insect that resembled a hummingbird in its swift movements. Upon closer inspection, it appeared to be a Hoverfly, yet its exact species eluded me. It boasted a striking black and white-tailed appearance, unlike any I had seen before. If this description rings a bell and you're familiar with its kind and name, please share your insights. This intriguing sighting was captured using a cellphone camera.


For those curious about the Hoverfly, it's a member of the Syrphidae family, easily recognized by a distinctive longitudinal false vein in its wings. The UK alone is home to over 270 species, some of which migrate to the region. These insects are harmless mimics of bees and wasps, sporting black and yellow patterns to deter predators.

As for the black and white-tailed bee, it could be the White-tailed bumblebee, scientifically known as Bombus lucorum. This common species is found across Europe and is part of the Bombus lucorum complex, which includes nearly identical-looking species that are challenging to differentiate without close examination.
Remember, the beauty of nature lies in its diversity, and every encounter with wildlife is a chance to learn and appreciate the intricate tapestry of life around us.🌿

How to Use PayPal in Pakistan: A Guide to Alternative Methods and Solutions

PayPal is an online platform that allows individuals and businesses to make and receive payments, as well as other financial services. Pakistan is a South Asian

A blog post about online payment solutions in Pakistan, with a logo of SadaPay, a digital wallet, and a screenshot of the app.

PayPal launch in Pakistan

This means that you cannot create a PayPal account, link a Pakistani bank account or credit card, or use PayPal to send or receive money from Pakistan.

country with about 220 million inhabitants. It ranks fifth in the world by population and second by Muslim population. PayPal is currently unavailable in Pakistan. This means that you cannot create a PayPal account, link a Pakistani bank account or credit card, or use PayPal to send or receive money from Pakistan. The main reason why PayPal does not operate in Pakistan is the lack of a legal and regulatory framework for online payments and e-commerce in the country. PayPal requires a high level of compliance and security from its partner countries, which Pakistan has not achieved. There is no official news about PayPal’s launch in Pakistan as of now. The Pakistani government has been trying to persuade PayPal to enter the Pakistani market for several years, but there has been no substantial progress or agreement so far. If you want to use PayPal from Pakistan, you will have to use some alternative ways or solutions. Some of these include: Using a service that acts as a mediator between you and PayPal, such as Payoneer, Skrill, or Xoom. These services allow you to create a virtual bank account or card that you can connect to PayPal and use to transfer or receive money. However, these services may have fees, limitations, or risks of fraud or scams. Using a friend or relative who lives in a country where PayPal is available, and asking them to create a PayPal account for you or move money to or from your account. This method requires trust and cooperation from the other person, and may also involve fees or taxes. Using a VPN or a proxy to access PayPal from a different country’s IP address. This method may allow you to create a PayPal account or use some of its features, but it is not recommended as it violates PayPal’s terms of service and may result in your account being blocked or banned.

If you want to buy from international e-commerce sites like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, AliExpress, Minecraft, Xbox, iTunes, PubG, PlayStation, Google Play Store, Spotify, and more, you can use e-vouchers.

SadaPay aims to offer financial freedom and convenience to the Pakistani people, especially the unbanked and underbanked segments of the population

However, SadaPay is not yet fully functional in Pakistan. It has received an “in-principle” approval for the Electronic Money Institution (EMI) license from the State Bank of Pakistan, but it is still in the process of launching its services to the public. Currently, SadaPay is running a pilot program with a limited number of users who can test its features and provide feedback

If you are interested in using SadaPay, but you are not part of the pilot program, you will have to wait until it is officially launched in Pakistan. However, there are some alternative methods and solutions that you can use in the meantime to access online payment services in Pakistan.
