main construction

, there were 241,326 housing units of one or two very small rooms. The degree of crowding was six persons per housing unit and three persons per room. For most of the housing units (approximately 76 per cent), the main construction material of outer walls is unbaked bricks whereas wood is used in 10 per cent and baked bricks or stones with mud bonding in 8 per cent housing units. A large number of families still live in jhugis or huts which are housing units formed with straws and thin wood-sticks. The wind storm proves these jhugis unsustainable all the times. But the poverty leaves no other option to these jhugiwalas (people living in jhugis). thumb left Topaz Mountain, Utah (File:TopazMountainByPhilKonstantin.jpg) Topaz is commonly associated with silicic igneous rocks of the granite and rhyolite type. It typically crystallizes in granitic pegmatites or in vapor cavities in rhyolite lava flows like those at Topaz Mountain in western Utah. It can be found with fluorite and cassiterite in various areas including the Ural (Ural mountains) and Ilmen mountains of Russia, in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Pakistan, Italy, Sweden, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Flinders Island, Australia, Nigeria and the United States. thumb left Talc output in 2005 (File:2005talc.png) Talc is a common metamorphic mineral in metamorphic belts which contain ultramafic rocks, such as soapstone (a high-talc rock), and within whiteschist and blueschist metamorphic terranes. Prime examples of whiteschists include the Franciscan Metamorphic Belt of the western United States, the western European Alps especially in Italy, certain areas of the Musgrave Block, and some collisional orogens (Orogeny) such as the Himalayas which stretches along Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bhutan. Although spoken Tibetan varies according to the region, the written language, based on Classical Tibetan, is consistent throughout. This is probably due to the long-standing influence of the Tibetan empire, whose rule embraced (and extended at times far beyond) the present Tibetan linguistic area, which runs from northern Pakistan in the west to Yunnan and Sichuan in the east, and from north of Qinghai Lake south as far as Bhutan. The Tibetan language has its own script (Tibetan script) which it shares with Ladakhi (Ladakhi language) and Dzongkha (Dzongkha language), and which is derived from the ancient Indian Brāhmī (Brāhmī script) script.

It is not a strict musical genre ''per se'', since the specific sounds can vary wildly (from Cornershops' Britpop to Panjabi MCs' jungle (oldschool jungle)). Most of these artists are the children or grandchildren of immigrants and have grown up in Western culture, but still have a strong Asian background through their families.

Pakistan

'''Pakistan''' ( coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by India to the east, Afghanistan to the west, Iran to the southwest and China in the far northeast. It is separated from Tajikistan by Afghanistan's narrow Wakhan Corridor in the north, and also shares a marine border with Oman.

The territory that now constitutes Pakistan was previously home to several ancient cultures (History of Pakistan#Prehistory), including the Mehrgarh of the Neolithic and the Bronze Age Indus Valley Civilisation, and was later home to kingdoms ruled by people of different faiths and cultures, including Hindus, Indo-Greeks (Indo-Greek Kingdom), Muslims (Muslim conquest in the Indian subcontinent), Turco-Mongols (Timurid dynasty), Afghan (Afghan (ethnonym))s and Sikhs. The area has been ruled by numerous empires and dynasties, including the Indian Mauryan Empire, the Persian Achaemenid Empire, Alexander of Macedonia (Alexander the Great), the Arab Umayyad Caliphate, the Mongol Empire, the Mughal Empire, the Durrani Empire, the Sikh Empire and the British Empire (British Raj). As a result of the Pakistan Movement led by Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the subcontinent (Indian Subcontinent)'s struggle for independence, Pakistan was created in 1947 as an independent nation for Muslims from the regions in the east and west of Subcontinent where there was a Muslim majority. Initially a dominion (Dominion of Pakistan), Pakistan adopted a new constitution (Constitution of Pakistan) in 1956, becoming an Islamic republic. A civil war (Bangladesh Liberation War) in 1971 resulted in the secession of East Pakistan as the new country of Bangladesh.

Pakistan is a federal (Federation) parliamentary republic consisting of four provinces and four federal territories (Administrative units of Pakistan). It is an ethnically (Ethnic groups in Pakistan) and linguistically (Languages of Pakistan) diverse country, with a similar variation in its geography (Geography of Pakistan) and wildlife (Fauna of Pakistan). A regional (Regional power) and middle power, Pakistan has the seventh largest standing armed forces (List of countries by number of troops) in the world and is also a nuclear power (Nuclear power in Pakistan) as well as a declared nuclear-weapons (List of states with nuclear weapons) state, being the only nation in the Muslim world, and the second in South Asia, to have that status. It has a semi-industrialised economy (Economy of Pakistan) with a well-integrated agriculture sector (Agriculture in Pakistan), its economy is the 26th largest (List of countries by GDP (PPP)) in the world in terms of purchasing power and 45th largest (List of countries by GDP (nominal)) in terms of nominal GDP and is also characterized among the emerging and growth-leading economies of the world.

The post-independence history of Pakistan has been characterised by periods of military rule, political instability and conflicts with neighbouring India (Indo-Pakistani wars and conflicts). The country continues to face challenging problems, including overpopulation (Human overpopulation), terrorism (Terrorism in Pakistan), poverty (Poverty in Pakistan), illiteracy (Education in Pakistan#Literacy rate), and corruption (Corruption in Pakistan). It ranked 16th on the 2012 Happy Planet Index.
