Teams work better – when they work together.” (Alice Vernon)……………
PSA (Stockholm) has started its journey from 2007 and progressing extremely well since then. Kudos to previous three working boards who has performed an excellent work to build PSA, a unique representative of Pakistani Students living in Stockholm.

It’s really difficult to praise just by few words, how the past working boards and members done their part. So one must pay a high gratitude for them which they deserved one for all. Being a student and finding out a time from a hectic schedule and investing it in PSA never can get ignored.

As a non-profit & non-political organization, everyone who has been attached to it worked really well and proved it to be a successful organization on its way.

Having said that…..there is and will be no ends for such organization. So what’s next……..

All of you (interested) might have noticed that how PSA has developed in last 4 years. This time there are 4 candidate panels standing for an upcoming election (14th May) for a future working board. It shows the growth and trust level of PSA which has been built on students by time to time.

It would be really exciting to see the election campaigns of all those involved on different forums. We appreciate all students to go through the short description of all 4 panels before you cast your vote and choose most suitable working board for upcoming year since each panel is attached to PSA by different means.

Note: The one who are not a member yet please get registered now and feel being a part of PSA in selecting the right panel. Each voter should take up the responsibility to cast your vote for the “most” talented panel.

As discussed above, there are 4 candidates panel standing for an election out of which one most “appropriate” panel will be elected. Which means the winner should focus on strength and further development of PSA.

Last but not the least those who do not get a chance to win this election, do not demoralize rather provide full moral support to the elected working panel, one must has to win and rest has to lose.

Remember…..”Teams work better – when they work together”. (Alice Vernon)

1st Inter-University Cricket Tournament

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Being a member of PSA Stockholm, I have honored to write the 1st blog post. In this blog I’ve tried to summarize the highlights of 1st ever Inter-University Cricket Tournament held at Husby Gård, Stockholm, last weekend (17-18 July). You might be wondering what PSA actually is? Well PSA (Pakistan Student Association) is a registered association with Stockholm University and KTH student(s) union, actually representing Pakistani Student(s) in Stockholm.
PSA Stockholm aims to play a dual role. Firstly, that of facilitating current and prospective Pakistani students by organizing practical information and creating awareness about the Swedish culture in contrast to social and cultural norms in Pakistan. Secondly, we aim to raise awareness about the culture and identity of Pakistan amongst the diverse student community of Stockholm by arranging Pakistani cultural festivals and information dissemination through our website and seminars.
Last weekend (17-18 July) PSA had held its 1st ever inter-university cricket tournament at Husby Gård. There were 9 teams in total representing different universities (Stockholm, KTH and Halmstad). Tournament was started on Saturday at 09:00 with first pool match between SU Tigers and KTH Jagaur. All teams were given colored t-shirts with PSA logo on it. Each teams consisted of 8 players. PSA Stockholm had been planning for this activity for one month to make it a successful event and no doubt they had achieved what they wanted to. Head of PSA sports & event committee Mr. Mazhar Mirani took initiative with his team members with full support of PSA working board and advisory board to plan a successful event. Special Pakistani food (Chicken Qorma) was served during two days to all participants. Ground was full of crowd and players during both days. On Sunday morning tournament was resumed with super sixes 1st match.  People enjoyed two whole days under outstanding weather conditions. Super sixes matches led to semi finals. Final match between SU Tigers and KTH Sardar was a real crunch game.  KTH Sardar set a total of 75 runs on board in 7 overs. Since from the word go SU Tigers had been the hot favorite for that tournament but unfortunately SU Tigers could reach the victory stand by the margin of only 2 runs. Well played to KTH Sardar and better luck to SU Tigers for next time.  During semi finals and final, our commentators (Mr. Saud Saleem and Mr. Muhammad Farooq) provided a lively commentary to the audience. The Western Union was official sponsor to PSA for this event. Final ceremony was held at the end of final match in which officials of PSA Stockholm had given prizes to man of the match, runners up trophy and the Winners cup. Indeed it was a successful tournament for PSA and an entertaining event for its participants.

I hope PSA Stockholm will continue arranging such events in future in order to bridging gap between Pakistani and Swedish communities. Some of pictures taken during the event are available here.
