Pak-Turk schools in Pakistan have a very good reputation but very expensive.

Lol@ Pak-Turk schools. Are there any Pak-Arab and Pak-Persian schools too ?

Anyways, Friend bhai, this kid may be a budding Pakistani politician and not a scientist. Why?

Here is the interview of our winner, big bro "Abro", watch this video carefully :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=FCictoBbnLQ

At 0:56 the kid explains that his project was about purifying industrial waste with ... Tea leaves !!

At 1:05 he shows his certificate, which is empty, his name is not on it !! Why ?

The whole science drama is not organized by NYU as the article (mis)informs, but by an obscure organization called "Genius Olympiad". Here is their site:

http://www.geniusolympiad.org/

From the site I downloaded the list of finalists. On the list, there are two Pakistanis, sure one of them has chaiwalla project, but it is not Mr. Abro, his name is Usama Khan K Baloch !

www.geniusolympiad.org/images/stories/GENIUS2012/GENIUS%202012%20Finalist%20List.pdf

As for the $250K award, I think the silver medalists (if he got one at all) got a tablet of some sort as per the website.....it must have cost 250 Pakistani rupees .... That is why I commented earlier that Abro mian from Khairpur, is ready for Pakistani politics. For his troubles and creativity, he should be given the pindigenousy built car Sitara.

Which school is this?


Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

How bad do things in your country have to be if a student winning a $250,000 scholarship is actually prime-time news for you?

With due respect LZ, that's exactly what I was thinking. Here we have Afghans winning millions of dollars of NSF grants, yet none would know about them. But in Pakistan 250K is breaking news? Congratulations nonetheless. I am pleased to see a young energetic mind(if true)win a scholarship.

I congratulate him once again, but which University offered him this scholarship?

Notice the happiness of going to the USA to study, all of a sudden:

Indeed. The article is full of lies. It clams that Mr. Abro won $250K in a science fest organized by NYU.

Lie 1: The fest was organized by some unknown organization called "Genius Olympiad", not NYU.

Lie 2: The second prize was not $250K as claimed but a tablet.

Lie 3: Mr. Abro never actually participated in the fest. According to the site the name of the Pakistani participant is Usama Khan.
This article just shows how easily Pakistani people and media can be fooled by a fraud.

In the morning, we queue-up outside the many US consulates here. In the evening, we burn American flags. And when we buy sugar and wheat at discounted prices, we don't realise that most of what we buy (from electricity to oil) have been partly subsidised by American dollaz.

Wait, I read that it was organized by a university named the State University of New York, but the problem that I had was SUNY is not a University, it's a SET of universities composed of autonomous institutions that make their own independent decisions. So to say SUNY organized it, it has to be a university in SUNY. Same applies for CUNY.

SUN and CUNY(Two separate set of Universities, one by the state, the other by the city) have over 100 universities combined in New York, of which 4 are super-major:

Stony Brook University(Science school, research behind MRI was here)
Binghamton University(Liberal Arts school, very strong non-science programs)
Albany University
Buffalo University(Very strong Engineering school).

I visited all 4 of those University centers, and found no news about this.
