There are 4 Mosques in my village, one is Jamia Mosque where Jumma prayer is also offered. There is also one Imam Bargha & 3 Mazars in the village.

The is no any hospital in the village but there are two clinics, & also 5 shops to purchase necessities of life. Village is only 3 km away from Malakwal so mostly people done their shopping in Malakwal.

What is Gondal:

Gondal is one of the main elite Jat clans living in PunjabPakistan. They are believed to have accepted Islam on the inducement of famous Sufi poet Baba Farid and were instructed by him to stay in the area between the Chenab River Jhelum River which now forms Mandi Bahauddin, and Sargodha District. They are approximately over half a million in population and are mainly living in Mandi Bahauddin,Malakwal, Kolowal, Phalia,(Rerka Bala) (Ajjowal) Kot Momin, Midh Ranjha, Bhalwal Tehsils Geven Gondal (30km away from Sargodha). The majority is associated with the profession of agriculture but a number of them are also in civil services, such as police, Education and judiciary in Pakistan. Quite a lot of them are also working abroad mainly in the United StatesCanadaSaudi ArabiaItalySpain, France, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

It is widely accepted in Punjab that Gondal’s have amassed great fortunes through their strict tolerance of agricultural expertise. It is therefore not surprising that they are now and always have been regarded as the Elite Senior Jats’ earning the status of Powerful Landlords of Pakistan. Many sources claim that as many as 37% of Pakistan’s Powerful & Secretive Inter-Services Intelligence ISI members of staff come from this clan.

Main Crops:

Famous crops of village are Wheat & Rice. But now a days some landlords are also cultivating Potatoes (Ch. Javid Gondal is a guy who has completed M.com but instead of doing job he prefer to work on his own land & make experiment to cultivate Potatoes on his land and his experiment was successful and now lot of people are cultivating potatoes also). Other main crops are as follow.

  • Sugar Can
  • Cotton
  • Potatoes
  • Maize
  • Tobacco

Media and Communication:

By the passage of time communication through Letters is decreased & Phone & Email has taken its place. So main mean of communication in my village is Phone. Through this people can keep in touch with their loved ones in other cities and abroad. TV/ Radio is main media through which people can get news about their beloved country & other world.

Organizations / Group in the village

There is an Yahoo group named as Gondals Online. This group is created to bring all Gondal’s on one platform, not only from village Kolowal but of Whole world. Shahid Imran Gondal & Saqib Mushtaq Gondal are Moderators of this group. This group is accessible on following address

Introduction:

Historically it is famous because of ancient ruins of old civilization on Tiba (No archeological survey have been done but it is thousands of years old village ruins). Some people from this village participated in The Battle of Chillianwala in 1849.

Dhoke Nawan Lock is a village of 5,000 people, mostly working in agriculture and services sector but after 1995 most of the young people preferred to travel abroad as economic migrants and now about 15% of young under 35 years of age are in Europe and North America. So the whole make up of the economic face has changed. Foreign capital now accounts for the 9/10 of the total income of the village which has resulted in higher prices for real estate and agriculture property.

The price of one acre of pure agricultural land has jumped to 800,000 RS (about 16,000$/ acre). The real estate is about 45,000$ per acre. The real challenge for the village is to invest in education and youth facilities so that it can channel the capital in more intelligent way. Like the village needs a library for its young minds.
