Dear Mr. Prime minister!
Far from the jam packed and industrious cities of Pakistan, lies a
culturally enriched, beautiful and breathtaking valley known as
Chitral valley. The heaven touching lush green valley full of
fluttering butterflies with its sky piercing mountains varying from
sheer to gradual features and the turquoise blue refreshing river
floating over the glassy rocks mesmerizes every beholder. People
with taste of travel come to enjoy the warmth of the sun, making
its way through the dark clouds and reflecting its rays from the
snow capped mountains. Synchronizing with its master piece beauty
is the beauty of the people with so unique values! However with
beauty and peace come the difficulties and adversities as well.
Lowari pass with its mystifying roads, covered with the bone
chilling snow has tons of records of how dreadful the situation
becomes in the freezing season of winters. Yes, Lowari pass the
beautiful and wondrous pass connecting Chitral to the lower cities
of Pakistan becomes the reason of both physical and mental stress
for Chitralis while traveling in those twisted and freeze roads.
Our government is so busy with metro buses and all the luxurious
facilities for the city people that thousands of people, who were
stuck in that dreadful situation of overlong night of 13th January
2017, do not seem to be an issue at all. If only you travel once
through Lowari and have to wait in the cold with nothing to eat and
holding up that aching cold you would realize the strong need to
complete the tunnel the soon its possible. How foolish I really
am!!! Why would someone, with all the facilities and luxuries even
need to care about feeling the pain of others unless you are a
great leader? A great leader is perceptive to the needs of others
and works for the empowerment of others but in our case our prime
minister is very much perceptive to his luxurious needs and keeps
Dear Mr. Prime Minister and the provincial government!
Please manage 5 minutes to spare from your “precious busy schedule”
to have a look what happens with the people of your country! I
apologize already for giving you headache of confronting Chitral
issue which you might not even consider an issue because
mountainous people don’t seem people to an elite class like you.
