China Window –
A Driver to Changing the Mindset of the People

China Window, as it is clear by the name, it really is a window – when you open, it presents a beautiful picture of China.

China Window, over a short period of time has become a great center of attraction in Peshawar. This has become possible because of hard work done by its team under the able and sincere leadership of Amjad Aziz Malik. Visitors ranging from politicians to dignitaries, members of establishment, civil servants, media personalities, free society delegations, famous sportsmen, writers, poets, social workers have been finding a source of knowledge and attraction. Amongst the team guests, students from schools, colleges and universities are the regular visitors of the window.

n a special request, Saturday has been fixed as family day. Students and visitors share their experiences through pictures on social media. All the activities and visits are regularly updated on the official page of China Window on face book. This page is closely followed by a large number of followers. China Window is also changing the mindset of people regarding CPEC. It is playing a great role in introducing the positive image of CPEC. One such example is that of Ameer Haider Khan Hoti; a former Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and now the member of National Assembly.On March 2018, addressing a press conference, he said that CPEC was not playing a significant role for KP. Its projects and benefits were only for Punjab and Sindh, while KP was ignored. But after paying a visit to China Window on 8th Feb, 2019, his opinion was totally changed. While addressing a large number of media present in window, he said that CPEC was proving to be a game changer for KP.

He said that CPEC will have long reaching effects upon Pakistan economy. He further emphasized that local and foreign investors should invest in KP, CPEC projects.

China Window is a great inspiration for students from schools, colleges, universities. Who during their visit, are briefed in detail about China’s glorified past, its historical achievements, milestones and places. For example: China’s Great wall, Potala palace, Temple of Heaven, forbidden city, Yellow River etc. Students are educated in detail about each of the places; their historical significance as well as the other visitors. Students show a great interest in China’s new inventions and achievements. They are briefed about polar station Kunlun, and work done in its observatory – how Chinese moon rover landed on dark side of moon, making it to become the first country in the world to plant a mini garden on the moon.

University and college level students show special interest in scientific achievements of China and seek further information on the subjects of their choice. They are updated on Hong Kong – Macau Bridge, NEVS (New Energy Vehicles), C919 airplanes, H.S.R (High speed railways), space programs etc. They are told that China used to be a very poor country, but through sheer hard work, punctuality and sincerity of its people, it became the most developed nation of the world. Truly the students are greatly inspired by unity and hard work habit of the Chinese people.

The nature, state and scope of further cementing the Pak China friendly relationships with special focus on historical facts are described to the visitors through pictures of our presidents and prime ministers visited China from time to time. An entire wall at the premises is dedicated to CPEC whereupon its various projects are displayed in pictures.

A number of books – ranging from Chinese history to culture, music, food, folk talks, acrobatics, and calligraphy etc. are also shelved in the window. Most of the transcriptions are translated into English and Urdu. Short story books – full of pictures are of great interest for the children.

One most important role that China Window contributes, is training arrangements for students – how to behave with Chinese visitors in their city in particular. They are told to go over them, smile say Ni hao’, and shake hands, so as to make them welcome and feel at home. As they are our guests here, so we should be polite to them. Every guest reaching at the China Window, is led to central part of the building which is decorated with a blue fiber glass roof and a beautiful fountain in middle.

Many of the pictures are of Chinese athletes and sports oriented activities. Guests are briefed about Chinese achievements in sports, especially in Olympics.

The lawn is decorated with pictures of traditional dances of China. A large 3 D picture of great wall is of a special attraction.
