Your great and voluntary services will help to teach and give orientation for all of us, especially those folks, who are out of their villages for any reasons and far from the cultural festivals. Indeed, such kind of creativity provides update and enables us to give constructive feedback for getting directions from the norms of the mountain societies, like Hunza-Gojal. This is one of the best examples of socio-economic and socio-cultural activities and reminds us to compare our present with our yesterday and learn lesson to plan for our better tomorrow. I see and reflect on the picture of barley (Yurk in Wakhi language) field, a very ancient tradition of agriculture represent our tradition with the combination of gigantic cell phone tower. This is also one of the characteristic to not forget our history in the era of complex theories and inventions of modernization and globalization to keep alive the unique human values. Keep it and Regards Sharif Khan Ustad-e-Mohtaram Sharif,You are very much right that by adding such relevant pictures from time to time, develops the connection of the minds which are away from the actual event/scene but atleast can be part of it by realizing or feeling it for a short moment. Such activities keep things alive in mind and fresh them up from time to time. I really salute Zulfiqar,”The Volunteer” who has been really generous in sparing time and knowledge. Well done Noor and Team members Ghalib,Lahore Ce tonuk vakhte vezga zemanva, koi puzzuf ma hozoret Mushda Cheneerne ky voz vezg, koi puzzuf ma hozoret Yurke tiyor nev deravan, da kamkas ven be vocen Mevaesht be teyor ke yov yavan, magam khu humsoya ver be randan Vakhte tonuk ka zemanva koi puzzuf ma hozoret Mushda Cheneerne ky voz vezg, koi puzzuf ma hozoret Baqla na yurkesh yez vudg yavan, bemoregvesh yavan Mulet shulbuttesh ny yaven, bemoregvesh yavan Yem roresh yod deyuvfd ki? saken ghireb ba tu Yem roresh yod deyuvfd ki? saken merz ba tu Yem roresh yod deyuvfd ki? saken binde ba tu Yem roresh yod deyuvfd ki? khu taty holot ne rumshen Vudge rupya be tay, ku jaye khun be tay Te tane luq be tay, re vange moch be tay Zemanesh de baff school be tay Jematesht khusroy be tay Da chafe buttal be tay, baff gesm o jone be tay Temekar sumba saran, ce baffen baf vocen Kam shelda saran, ziyot amal saran Lemanr dast rashven, ney re leman sar luch katan Dase julayer rechen, ta ney shurob peven voz ny cigrate khshen Vakhte tonuk ka zemanva koi puzzuf ma hozoret Mushda Cheneerne ky voz vezg, koi puzzuf ma hozoret Monjon Kashmir This is really great. It sounds as we are part of the celebrations making so many connections to our traditions and cultural festivities albeit living miles away from our homes. Thanks to PT for giving us a flacour and taste apart. This also reminds us of how rich our traditions are. We are making pace with the cosmopolitan world yet living our wonderful traditions. Keep it up and let us keep our culture and traditions alive for the generations to follow. cheers, Sultan Ahmed Islamabd Ustad-e-Mohtaram Sharif,You are very much right that by adding such relevant pictures from time to time, develops the connection of the minds which are away from the actual event/scene but atleast can be part of it by realizing or feeling it for a short moment.
