Chitral’s Raolai problem — 3 Comments

  1. A beautiful narration of the havocs of Raolai. I have also tried to depict the problem in a Khowar drama titled ‘Raolai’ which has recently been published in my book on Khowar dramas and features (Khowar tmsilanoche tmsilchan kitab). When I was a university student in late nineteen fifties, had a narrow escape, along with my friends Samsam Ul Mulk and Mir Subhanud din, while attempting to cross the Raolai during snowfall.

  2. Well stuffed and well written article. Yes, Raolai is what it is about. I carry in my memory an episode of the sort when 35 of us miraculously survived an on coming avalanche at dusk on the 21st of March 1977 just below what is known as Gujuro Parhao.

  3. Would love to hear from qaisarani about his hunting spree in Chitral, as he had made history by hunting ducks through his repeater gun 🙂 I am sure sure must be missing hunting ducks as there is nothing in NWA where he is currently posted.
