Nisar Ahmad of NCA – Lahore

by Aslam Khan Ghalib

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.

  5. Bravo Nisar!
    Nisar Ahmad has been one of my good students in Al-Amyn Model school from the beginning. Being a founding teacher and one of the principals of Al-Amyn Model School Gulmit (1991-94), I know Nisar from his nursery class. From that stage of his life, I had realised Nisar’s genius. He was the first boy (age 5) who initiated and dared in reading a farman of our beloved Imam of the time ((written manually by me for him) in the audience on 12th Dec, 1991 in Central JK, Gulmit. Thus, he got a lot of appreciations from the audience besides prizes. Later on, he also very actively took part in the performing arts besides his curricular activities.

    It is a great pleasure for me that one of my brilliant students has come to this stage and intends to write his dissertation on the heritage documentation.

    Nisar! I would like you to go through a report titled: “Ecotourism Study” by Karim Ullah Baig (of Ghulkin) for the IUCN (Gojal Conservancy, November 2003). This study has got two main parts: Physical Sites and Cultural Sites. The former was surveyed by Karim himself and the latter (Cultural Sites) is my contribution, even though, my name is not on the tital page as an author, because this study was a consultancy given to Karim by IUCN. In this document, the cultura sites (esp. historical heritages) have been identified and defined in result of interviews from different respondents of the respondents. This would be one of the sourceds for your literature review.

    I would like you to please go through this document (available in PDF on the internet). Write down the title in the Google Search and find it. Or you may have already got it, isn’t?

    Whenever you confronted any type of academic/research issue related to your study, please don’t hesitate in contacting me, if I could extend my hands for help according to my limited capacity.

    Wish you all the best

  6. Nisar…..
    In continuation what Fazal Amin Beg has suggested i would add some more about a similar sort of survey of historic monuments “inventory of historic monoments of the northern areas” have been completed by a team of professionals from The Aga Khan Cultural Services Pakistan (AKCSP) covering all the hestoric monoments( sites,buildings,forts,houses,pologround,mosques etc) both with pictures and written description of the same.
    I am sure that must be useful for you if you are lucky to find a copy.
    Wish you all the best,
