urban informality: everyday life in informal urban settlements in Pakistan why informal settlements of self-built housing are widespread in Pakistan today.
Throughout Pakistan, as in most agrarian societies, family organization is strongly patriarchal, and most people live with large extended families, often in the same house or family compound. The eldest male, whether he is the father, grandfather, or paternal uncle, is the family leader and makes all significant decisions regarding the family and its members. In wealthy peasant and landowner households and in urban middle-class families, the practice of keeping women in seclusion purdah is still common; when women leave their houses, they typically cover their heads.
Among the rural poor, women have duties on the farm as well as in the house and do not customarily observe purdah. Among the wealthiest Pakistanis, Western education and modes of living have eliminated purdah, but, in general, even among that group, attitudes toward women in society and the family often have been viewed by outsiders as antiquated. Change has occurred most rapidly among the urban middle-income group, inspired by increasing access to the West as well as by the entry of women into the workforce and into government service.

Abstract This dissertation takes distance from scholarship on Pakistan that considers sectarianism to be the exclusive preserve of religious politics. It fails to ask how and why sectarianism has found support among Pakistanis. I claim sectarianism has to be studied not only as politics but also as a historical condition.

I first went to Gujarat in to work on a project about the nomadic Maldhari tribes that roam the countryside herding cows, buffaloes, camels, goats and sheep. Aside from learning about the struggles that these communities face in a rapidly changing country, I met people proud of their way of life who have a deep connection to their animals. The Maldhari are famed in Gujarat for the quality of their dairy products, and they know their herds so intimately, I was told, that they can tell from one sip of milk exactly which buffalo or cow it came from.
Through many conversations covering a wide range of subjects, the complexities of Indian life and politics and caste and religion slowly came into focus. I also became unexpectedly close to the couple that ran the Ahmedabad-based Maldhari Rural Action Group and members of their family — particularly two journalism professors. Aside from everything I learned about India that can only be gleaned through time spent with families, I left with lifelong friends.

ISLAMABAD: The Azadi March could disrupt everyday life in the capital if it is prolonged or spins out of control because the venue chosen for the march is located in the heart of the city, near educational institutions and government buildings. The venue is next to the metro bus depot and track. The march is scheduled to reach Islamabad on Oct 31, and the leadership of the party has not announced its duration. During a visit to the protest site, Dawn found that while the space will accommodate a large number of protesters, the organisers will have to take steps to reduce dust and remove weeds before people gather there.

The car park is also used as an unauthorised link road between Kashmir Highway and H Defence Minister Pervez Khattak said the protest site is between 20 and 30 acres.
