  3. —-Dear All!
    Thanks for the PT team for sharing-However; the basic theme is again missed intestinally or un-intestinally. This cultural programme was arranged in valley of HUNZA in 1974 by AKCSP and the person nominated by AKF was Engineer Ghulam Muhammad SAKHI OF VILLAGE PASSU. It was a week programme specially invited by the artiest and artisan of TASHGURGHAN and Dufdaar Area of China. We worked as a volunteer and give our inputs to make it successful.
    -The basic theme of such cultural programs is to learn, acceptability and intermingling of cultural, social and in broad spectrum religiously to one another.
    -If we are talking about the trans-boarder opportunities for the mountainous living people of these areas what was wrong to call all of them on this festival of joy to learn from one another and own the good values. As, narrated this is the second of its type and Inshallah if feasible the concern offices and personalities should consider these options. The upper part of Hunza (Gojal) population of majority are Wakhix of genealogically toojik and they majority speak wakhix language.

    Oly the main missing here was Hunza or Gilgit-Baltistan

  4. Thank you again Mr Khan and Pamir Times – excellent photos and captions from a wonderful land. Top job !
