KARACHI: Jehangir Jamali is determined to traverse 300Km on a dog sled over five days across Norway’s snow-covered mountains.

The Economics teacher from Karachi is currently a candidate for the Fjällräven Polar, a competition to enter an international polar expedition. One is selected for the adventure through votes from their region. Winners of Fjällräven Polar will represent their country and fly their national flag in the expedition.

The submission from each region with the most votes is guaranteed a spot. Pakistan falls into the regional category of the world which includes countries such as India.

I want to do this expedition because it would give me a chance to promote and help build a positive image of Pakistan not just abroad, but also locally to help our own national morale says Jamali.
