Lahore, May 15: Nisar Ahmed is a student of Film Making and Media at Pakistan’s elite National College of Arts, Lahore. He is currently working for the AAG TV, a channel operated by GEO TV network, in Karachi. He was selected to work for the said channel after tough competition with tens of students who had also applied.
Talking to Pamir News Blog Nisar said that he will be creating a documentary on the cultural heritage of Gojal Valley, as part of his thesis requirements. “The documentary”, he said, “will be research based and include old buildings and forts located in different parts of the largest Tehsil of Gilgit – Baltistan”. This, he clarified, is an effort to record and present the historical legacy of the region.
He will also focus on the common day to day practices of families of the region and study the contemporary family dynamics in terms of social engagements, associations and networks.
His thesis proposal, though challenging, is also a recognition of his soud academic record and his expertise in the area of research. We, the Pamir Times Family, wish Nisar the best of luck for his future endeavours.
