Pakistani Culture Glimpse !




    Hey  Friends !

Hope   and   pray    that   all   around   you   and  inside   you  is   going   Beautiful!

Beauty  has  many  faces  one  of   it  is  true  Happiness   if   you   are   happy   inside   everything  around  you  looks   flattered   and   beautiful  .And   if   there  is   not   around   but   only   inside   you,    you   try    to   drag  it   out   of   you   and   sprinkle   in   your   environments    because   it   is  human   nature   that   he   wants   to    create   a   world   that   can   he   easily   relate   with.

You   can   give    away   only   you  have   in   your   hands   so   be   happy   always!

Today   i   will   share   some   glimpse   of   our   provincial   culture    which   is   still    breathing   in   insidious    rural    areas   .

Though   in    cities   specially   in   big    cities   people    have    become    quite    similar   in   their   advancements   which   includes    all   sort   of   lifestyle  ,dressing,   way   of    thinking   and   dealing    with    problems.  Yet   culture   is   base   of   any   nation .  I    consider   it   like   a   root    from   a   nation   grows   .By    the   time    traditions    and   customs    convert   into   new    colors   of    thoughts   though   but   still   it    gives   an   identity   and   strength   to   a   heart   that   he   had  his   roots   somewhere.


Below   i   am   presenting    few   photos   [google help]   which   will    give   you   idea   of   the   old   cultural    lifestyle   of   province   where   i   spent   my   childhood   and   some   youth  .




   This   is   the   view   of   a   remote   village   of   Chitraal  city  .[I could not  find   the good  photo  of  city though]  Chitraal  is  located  in  the   lap   of  highest   mountain  of   Pakistan  ,it's  height  is  25,289 ft from  sea level. Here  people  live  still  by  their  old   culture .Farming and  tourism   are  the  main  source  to  earn  living.


                                  Swat   city  which  is  located  near  Chitraal 



                                Men's   traditional   dance  on  special  occasions,  though   my   village  is  in  the  same  province  but   quite   in   lower  hilly  land ,but   i   used  to  see  men   dancing  in  same   way  on   weddings when  i  was  little . sensational   and  rhythmic   performance   of  group   of  men  were   seen   by   women   of  village  [not  allowed to  the men portion so  peeking  from  roofs  hidenly  ] fondly .



                                                   Traditional   footwear  for    men



   Traditional   meals in  which  you  can  see  the  corn  bread on left,mustered butter dish the green one,wheat bread  and  tea  without milk .Meat roasted .



                                                         Ladies   footwear.



                                                    Traditional   dress  for  ladies .


                                                      [Some  of  ]     handy crafts  




        Babies   are  wrapped  while  they   sleep  so  they  feel  safe  even if they  wake up , this  tradition   is  common  among   all  four  provinces mostly countryside  areas 


                                      Much  rich  in   colors  when  it  comes  to   decoration 


                                                                         Traditional   Jewelry .

That  was  a  little  part  of  cultural  glimpse  from  northern  areas  of  my  province  dear   fellows ,hope  you   liked   it .This  was  only  from  one  province ,next  time  i   will    try  to   share   the   glimpse  from  another   province of  my  homeland.

Before  saying   goodbye  i  want   to  THANK  ALL    OF    YOU  !  who   showed  concern   for  my  health   and  share  their  experience  with  me ,i  am  so   overwhelmed  by   your  love   and  prayers  fro  me ,they   mean  LOT TO  ME.Thank  you  again  !!!

See   you   soon  ,please  stay  happy ,positive  and  strong  ,Take   great  care ,God   Bless    You   All!!!

  10. So bright and colourful! Wrapping babies for sleep (swaddling) is making a comeback here now. It was never done when I was a child. But it's more and more commonly seen today.

  33. I just read your earlier post about your gall bladder, and I can certainly relate to you ignoring the signals your body is trying to send you. I was so foolish, I didn't go to the hospital until three days after my appendix burst, and almost didn't go then. (Once it ruptures, the horrible pain subsides...) Anyway, I'm glad you're going to get that surgery.

    Your photographs are lovely. Such vibrant colors! I think true happiness comes from inner peace and contentment, but being surrounded by such happy colors surely enhances it. :)

  39. What a lovely and informative post, Baili! I feel so badly because I fell behind on reading your posts. We were traveling for sixteen days and under conditions that made getting on the internet difficult. But I am catching up on every one this morning as I enjoy my morning coffee. I was sad to hear that you are dealing with a medical issue. I admire how you continue to share your culture and thoughts with your blogging buddies, even as you go through a difficult time. Please know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  41. Baili, you inspired me with your post, and my recent post I showed a few interesting facts about the place where I live, California. I wish you could come by and see it sometime because you were the dear blog friend I spoke about in the first few lines. While I was at the trail today enjoying nature, I said a prayer for you, as you asked me to. So thankful for blog friends like you, Baili. : )
