  1. It is really an appreciable initiative. The artists of GB have maintained the original colour and charm of their traditional music, dance, cultural events, festivals, clothing and the likes. In contrast, our Chitrali brothers and sisters have lost most parts of their culture. The reunion will help in preserving the originality of both the cultures.
    This day, 22nd Feb, has been declared as International Mother’s language Day. But the year 2014 is also the centennial death anniversary of our Khow people who were divided by the then Mehtar of Chitral and British Administration of India. The khow craddle was broken hundred years back and Ghazar and Yasen valleys were cut off from Chitral and given under the Dogra Administration of Kashmir.
