Dr Abdul Razzak Shaikh
Khairpur is also called Khairpur Mirs city, Sindh province. The city lies along the Khairpur East Canal, 11 miles (18 km) south of the Indus River. It was founded in 1783 by M?r (chief) Sohr?b Kh?n, who established the Khairpur branch of the Talpur family. A communications Centre, it is connected by rail with Peshawar and Karachi and by road with Sukkur and Karachi.The 6th Batch of the Chandka Medical College Khairpur Chapter arranged the 4th reunion at Khairpur District from 20th November to 21st November 2021. After inauguration by the Host Colleagues at Gymkhana Khairpur, a group of doctors visited the Faiz Mahal is a palace in Khairpur Sindh Pakistan.It was built by Mir Sohrab Khan in 1798 as the principal building serving as the sovereign’s court for the royal palace complex of Talpur monarchs of the Khairpur dynasty.

Then Caravan of about 125 Doctors and their families Visited Engro Dairy Form with a Short briefing about the Milk Product of Opler Situated at the Desert of Nara.The livelihood of the people of the Nara Desert is largely dependent on their livestock, that is, sheep, goats, and camels. Cultural Heritage Joint family systems prevail in the Nara. All 3 generations, grandparents, parents, and children live under 1 roof. Most marriages are made at younger ages as per religious dictates. Marriage ceremonies in the Nara are generally simple and less costly compared to other parts of Sindh. In spite of its low productivity, this desert sustains relatively high human and livestock populations of 1.05 million and 1.25 million, respectively.This livestock is the major source of meat and wool to the country. There is a tendency to increase the livestock population since it is the only livelihood of pastoralists. This increase in the livestock population is at the expense of the fragile ecosystem. Degradation of the land is verified by verbal information from the inhabitants of the Nara Desert. The overexploitation of vegetation by grazing and the chopping of trees and shrubs for fuel purposes has resulted in environmental degradation that threatens the natural resource base of this region. There is no modern transportation system in the study area. The pastoralists, accustomed to nomadic life, are opportunistic and do not adhere to regular movement patterns or timing for their pastures. They possess large herds of livestock, mainly camels and cows. They follow the distribution of rainfall and the resultant forage. Around the months of April and May, they move out of the desert toward surrounding irrigated areas. They are forced there by rising temperatures and the depletion of vegetation for food and water in the desert area. The attraction for this movement includes browsing livestock on weeds/wheat stubbles and drinking water for humans and livestock. In contrast to plants being used as forage, local inhabitants use them for different purposes, such as food, shelter, and medicine. A total of 160 plant species are recorded from this desert, and out of these, 148 are reported to have been used for various purposes by local inhabitants of the area under study. They used them in folk medicine, fuelwood, forage, food, vegetables, wild fruits, flavoring agents, tea making, roof thatching, agricultural implements, timber/furniture, matrices making, rope making, basket making, sitting chairs, broom making, tooth sticks, clothes washing, leather tanning, detergent, fencing/hedge, shade, ornamental/recreational, soil binders, windbreaks, and poisons. The overexploitation of vegetation by grazing and the chopping of trees and shrubs for fuel purposes has resulted in environmental degradation that threatens the natural resource base of this region. There is no modern transportation system in the study area. Local inhabitants use camels as their mode of transportation. The pastoralists, accustomed to disturbing the entire wildlife environment. Problems of the Area The main problems of the area are observed.
