Many small streams fall into the Astor River in its short course. Its catchment area is not covered by the vegetation but possess glacial moraines, cirques and steep slopes. This river drains the area lying to the east of Nanga Parbat.

In its upper reaches it is also known as the Chandrabhaga. It flows through the Jammu region of Jammu and Kashmir into the plains of the Punjab, forming the boundary between the Rechna and Jech interfluves Doabs in Persian.

The Satluj then joins the Indus at Mithankot. The total length of the Chenab is approximately kilometers. The Chenab has the same place in the consciousness of the people of the Punjab as, say, the Rhine holds for the Germans or the Danube for the Austrians and the Hungarians. It is the iconic river around which Punjabi consciousness revolves, and plays a prominent part in the tale of Heer Ranjha, the Punjabi national epic and the legend of Sohni Mahiwal.

This river has been in the news of late due to the steps taken by the Indian government to build a number of hydropower dams along its length in India most This is a result of the Indus Basin Project. These planned projects on Chenab have been hotly contested by Pakistan which says that India is breaking the terms and clauses of the Indus water treaty by storing and channelling the waters of this river, a claim totally rejected by the Indian government.

Mirani Dam is being built on Dasht River to provide drinking water to Gwadar city. It's source are the hills six miles south of the Sufed Koh, the source of the Kurram River, which it runs parallel too and finally joins. The Gambila is an important river for the inhabitants of the Dawar valley, as it serves to irrigate a large area of land that it runs through. It originates in the Shivalik Hills of Himachal Pradesh and flows through Punjab and Haryana to Rajasthan; just southwest of Sirsa in Haryana and by the side of Tibi in Rajasthan, this seasonal river feeds two irrigation canals that extend into Rajasthan.

Near Suratgarh the Ghaggar is then joined by the dried up Drishadvati Chautang river. The wide river bed of the Ghaggar river suggest that the river once flowed full of water, and that it formerly continued through the entire region, in the presently dry channel of the Hakra River, possibly emptying into the Rann of Kutch. It supposedly This is supposed to have happened at the latest in BCE, but perhaps much earlier.

Something not right here

In India there are also various small or middle-sized rivers called Sarasvati or Saraswati. One of them flows from the west end of the Aravalli Range into the east end of the Rann of Kutch. It rises as a small snow-melt channel from the glaciers on the northern slopes of the great Himalayan range. Rising from the glaciers the Ghizar valley many small tributaries join the Ghizar River at various places along its course.

It flows eastwards to join the Gilgit River flowing in from the north. The entire catchment area of the Ghizar River is bleak and desolate. The slopes are devoid of a vegetative cover. It flows towards southeast and joins the Indus at Skardu. A tributary rising from Baltoro glacier at the base of Masharbrum peak also falls into the Shigar River therefore, it contains waters of two of the most important glaciers of the Karakoram Range.

No vegetation is seen on the catchment area because of its high altitude. The headwater springs of the Gomal's main leg come together close to the fort of Babakarkol in Katawaz, a district inhabited primarily by Kharoti and Suleiman Khel Pashtuns. The Gomal's chief tributary is the Zhob River. The river passes then through the Damaan plain It forms the provincial boundary between Sindh and Balochistan, west of Karachi.

Hub Dam is a large water storage reservoir constructed in on the Hub River in the arid plains north of Karachi. The reservoir supplies water for irrigation in the Lasbella district of Balochistan and drinking water for the city of Karachi. It is an important staging and wintering area for an appreciable number of water birds and contains a variety of fish species which increase in abundance during periods of high water.

The Mahseer Tor putitora , an indigenous riverine fish found in the Hub River, grows up to 2m in length and provides for excellent angling. The Hungol valley has fantastic scenery of towering cliffs, pinnacles and buttresses, the river winding between. Some miles in length, the Hungol is Balochistan's longest river.

Unlike most other streams in Balochistan which only flow during rare rains, the Hungol always has flowing water in it. Hungol River and valley are located in Hungol National Park Hunza River Hunza River is the principal river of Hunza, in the Northern Areas of Pakistan.

It is formed by the confluence of the Kilik and Khunjerab nalas gorges which are fed by glaciers. The river cuts through the Karakoram Range, flowing from north to south.

Originating in the Tibetan plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, the river runs a course through Ladakh district in Kashmir and Northern Areas, flowing The total length of the river is kilometers miles. The river has a total drainage area exceeding 1,, square kilometers , square miles. The river's estimated annual flow stands at around cubic kilometers.

Beginning at the heights of the world with glaciers, the river feeds the ecosystem of temperate forests, plains and arid countryside. It has 20 major tributaries. The Indus provides the key water resources for the economy of Pakistan - especially the breadbasket of Punjab province, which accounts for most of the nation's agricultural production, and Sindh. It also supports many heavy industries and provides the main supply of potable water in Pakistan.

The ultimate source of the Indus is in Tibet; it begins at the confluence of the Sengge and Gar rivers that drain the Nganglong Kangri and Gangdise Shan mountain ranges. The Indus then flows northwest through Ladakh-Baltistan into Gilgit, just south of the Karakoram range.

The Shyok, Shigar and Gilgit streams carry glacial waters into the main river. It gradually bends to the south, coming out of the hills between Peshawar and Rawalpindi. The Indus passes gigantic gorges - meters 15,, feet high near the Nanga Parbat massif. It swiftly flows across Hazara, and is dammed at the Tarbela Reservoir.

The Kabul River joins it near Attock. The remainder of its route to the sea is in plains of the Punjab and Sind, and the river becomes slow-flowing and highly braided. It is joined by Panjnad River at Mithankot. Passing by Jamshoro, it ends in a large delta to the east of Thatta. The Indus is one of the few rivers in the world that exhibit a tidal bore. The flow of the river is also determined by the seasons - it diminishes greatly in the winter, while flooding its banks in the monsoon months from July to September.

There is also evidence of a steady shift in the course of the river since prehistoric times - it deviated westwards from flowing into the Rann of Kutch. It is a tributary of the Indus River. It has been speculated that the Vitasta must have been one of the seven rivers sapta-sindhu mentioned so many times in the Rigveda.

The name survives the Kashmiri name for this river as Vyath. The river was regarded as a god by the ancient Greeks, as were most mountains and streams; the poet Nonnus in the Dionysiaca section 26, line makes the Hydaspes a titan-descended god, the son of the sea-god Thaumas and the cloud- goddess Elektra. He was the brother of Iris the goddess of the rainbow, and half- brother to the harpies, the snatching winds. Since the river is in a country foreign to the ancient Greeks, it is not clear whether they named the river after the god, or whether the god Hydaspes was named after the river.

According to Arrian Anabasis, 29 , he built a city "on the spot whence he started to cross the river Hydaspes", which he named Bukephala or Bucephala to honour his famous horse Bukephalis which was buried in Jalalpur Sharif. It is thought that ancient Bukephala was near the site of modern Jhelum City. According to a historian of Gujrat district, Mansoor Behzad Butt, Bukephala was buried in Jalalpur Sharif, but the people of Mandi Bahauddin, a district close to Jehlum, believed that their Tehsil Phalia was named after Bucephala, Alexander's dead horse.

They say that the name Phalia was the distortion of the word Bucephala. It is the main river in the eastern part of Afghanistan. It flows km before joining the Indus River near Attock. The Kabul River itself is little more than a trickle for most of the year, but swells in summer due to melting snows.

Its largest tributary is the Kunar, which starts out as the Mastuj River, flowing from the Chiantar glacier in Chitral, Pakistan and once it flows south into Afghanistan it is met by the Bashgal River flowing from Nurestan.

The Kunar meets the Kabul near Jalalabad. In spite of the Kunar carrying more water than the Kabul, the river continues as the Kabul River after this confluence, mainly for the political and historical significance of the name. The general direction of the rivers is from Southwest to northeast. The Zhob River rises at Tsari Mehtarazai pass, the watershed a distance of about kilometers. The broad plain of the Zhob River is occupied by the alluvial formation.

The Kundar River rises from the central and highest point of the TobaKakar range, a few kilometers northeast of the Sakir. It constitutes boundary between Pakistan and Afghanistan territory for a considerable length. A main source of the river is Lulusar Lake, nearly 48km from Naran Valley. The Kunhar river trout is considered to be the best throughout the sub-continent.

Lyari River passes through the city of Karachi from north east to the center and drains into the Arabian Sea. Lyari River is one of the two rivers passing through Karachi and the other is Malir River. Malir River passes through the city of Karachi from northeast to the centre and drains into the Arabian Sea. Malir River is one of the two rivers passing through Karachi and the other is River.

It has two other little river help one is Thadho and other is Sukhan. In a rainy season this river flow with lot of water and millions of gallons of water waste in Arabian Sea.

If the government becomes serious to this matter and construct a dam on this river, it will benefit the whole of Karachi a great deal. Its name is derived from the Persian for 'panj' meaning 'five' and 'kora' meaning 'river'. The combined stream runs southwest for approximately 45 miles and joins Indus River at Mithankot.

The Indus continues into the Arabian Sea. A dam on Panjnad has been erected; it provides irrigation channels for Punjab and Sind provinces south of the Sutlej and east of the Indus rivers.

It is one of the five rivers which give Punjab its name. It originates in the Himalayas in the Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh following a north-westerly course. It turns to the south-west, near Dalhousie, and then cuts a gorge in the Dhaola Dhar range It then flows along the Indo-Pak border for some distance before entering Pakistan and joining the Chenab River. The total length of the river is about km.

It is also called 'The river of Lahore' since that great city is located on its eastern bank.

On its western bank is located the famous tomb of Jahangir. The river is tributary to Indus River and meets the Indus in Skardu valley. Small snow-fed tributaries join the river at various places. Two main streams of this river originate in different depressions of an offshoot of the Karakoram Range. They merge where the two valleys meet and flow as the main stream of the Shimshal towards west to join with the Hunza River upstream of Baltit. There is an increase in the discharge of this river in late summer when the glacier melts at a faster pace.

Flash floods may occur in mid-afternoon during this season when the water level rises abruptly. The entire catchment area of the Shimshal River is devoid of a vegetative cover.

Human habitation is restricted to the banks of the Hunza River. It is the easternmost tributary river of the Indus River, which overall, drains the ancient and historically important region of Greater Punjab.

Located in the shadow of the Vindhya Range, the region to its south and east is arid and known in different Flowing generally south- southwest from its headwaters, the Sutlej River joins first with the Beas River in the state of Punjab, India and continues south-westerly into Pakistan to mix with the Chenab River, forming the Panjnad River south of ancient Multan. From the confluence near Khanpur, the Panjnad joins the Indus River at Mithankot, where after the large river flows through a gorge near Sukkur and flows through a fertile plains region known as the Sind until it reaches the Arabian Sea.

A heavy freight canal, known as the SLY Sutlej-Yamuna Link , is being built eastwards through Punjab near an ancient caravan route and highlands pass from the Sutlej watershed to connect near the source of the largest tributary of the Ganges, the Yamuna river, and when complete will allow shipping from India's east coast to the west coast. It drains much of the water of Pothohar. It starts near a small village Bun in the foothills of Patriata and Murree.

It provides water to Simlbee Dam, which is reservoir of water for Islamabad. Near Pharwala Fort it cuts through a high mountain range and that is a wonderful phenomenon of nature. The place is called Swan Cut. No stream can cut such a high mountain. It proves the Swaan was there before the formation of this range. And when the mountain rose through millions of years, the stream continued its path by cutting the rising mountain. Ling stream, following a relatively long course though Lehtrar and Kahuta falls in the Swaan near Sihala.

Islamabad Highway crosses this stream near Sihala where famous bridge Cock Pull is constructed over it. Another famous, Lai stream joins this stream near Swaan Camp. After walking a tortuous path and creating a big curve, the stream reaches Kalabagh where it falls into the Indus River.

This relatively small stream is more than kilometers long. Due to its mountainous course and shallow bed, it is hardly used for irrigation purposes. For grinding wheat, you can find ancient types of flour mills near Chakian. Fishing is not possible in this stream as a profession. Rohu is the main species of fish in this stream. Kingfisher hunts here too. Swat River irrigates vast area of Swat District and contributes to fishing industry of the region.

Saidu Group's of teaching hospitals also located at the banks of Swat Malamjaba ski resort is about 10 miles away from the river. Ayub Bridge is one of the attractions for visitors. The scenery attracts many tourists from all over Pakistan during the summer. It is said that Alexander the Great crossed the Swat River with part of his army and before turning south to subdue the locals at what are now Barikoot and Odegram.

Also, the banks of this river, which was earliest known as Shrivastu, later Suvastu and currently the present name, is the place of origin of the Shrivastava sub-clan of the Indo-Aryan Kayastha clan.

Some 30 years ago, the water was fit for drinking even in Mingora km downstream from Kalam , but now it is not safe even in Kalam. Swat River joins the Kabul river near Charsadda, Peshawar valley. There are two main hydro-electric power projects on canals from the swat river which generates electricity for local usage. It is also sometimes referred to as the Gambila River. Zhob city is located on banks of Zhob River.

IQ has been found to robustly predict general knowledge scores even after accounting for differences in age, sex, and five factor model personality traits.

Standardized IQ tests may therefore include measures of general knowledge, such as in the information subtest of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale. Individual differences in the efficiency of such processes might explain why all domains of semantic memory appear to be intercorrelated. Though one study found that extraversion and neuroticism were negatively correlated with general knowledge, [7] others found that they were unrelated.

In a comparison between male and female university students in 19 domains of academic knowledge, males had greater knowledge in 14 domains, especially in physical science and technology , but also in humanities and civics. A study of university students in Northern Ireland found that males scored higher in general knowledge than females, as well as in 12 of 19 specific knowledge domains. Females scored moderately higher than males in medicine and cookery.
