Sorry to say, Its a complete manual effort. I have taken screenshot in the slide mode. Copy all the screenshot to google doc, then from there you can save it as pdf file.
Dear mam, my optional is geography. Please, suggest me about strategy of preparation and authentic books of each section. Thank you.
Ma'am plz i need clarification. In the map u have drawn, ghizar is shown as left bank tributary of Gilgit, but in another slide u hv mentioned it as the right bank tri of gilgit. Also its shown that ghizar is joining gilgit after hunza, but i think ghizar river joins 1st (not sure from left or right bank) & then hunza joins gilgit. Is it left bank tri or right bank tri? Ghizar is also known as gupis east of gupis town. In this case ghizar is left bank tributary acc to this map ( ) as gilgit passes through gupis acc to oxford altas, so ghizar will be above gilgit. Plz clarify soon.
aray itni detail ki zarurat nahi hai. already jo madam ne smjhaya wo detailed hai kafi
in the map, it seems as if both Ghizar & Hunza are left bank tributaries[as they are both on the left side of the course], but in the lesson, you explained it as right & left bank tributaries respectively, why so?
