Mastuj Road is Washed Away at Shogram in Upper Chitral

The Chitral district is experiencing history’s worst flooding because of unending series of torrential rain and breaking of glaciers that has been causing high flood in the Chitral River and greatly damaged the basic life amenities such as water pipeline, electricity lines and channels and telephone connections. Two days ago the water supply line to Chitral town had been reconstructed at Angarghoon but was swept again by another flood after a day of its restoration. This has left Chitral town without water for the last 10 days.

The Mother of Love

As innocent as dove
You the mother of love
Contended is thy face
Lenient is thy phrase
Nothing is above
you, the mother of love
Your mild scolding
And gentle holding
Of my hands in the glove
You the mother of love
That elegant peaked cap
And warmth of lap
Complements and bravo
You the mother of love
Dedication: These stanzas are dedicated to my beloved mother and many more like her in the mountains of Chitral.

Terichmir—Crown of the Hindukush

O chief of mountains, standing tall,
Your grace and poise entices all,
Your snowy roof, lost in the mist,
A site one simply can't resist,
You are but like a fantasy,
A source of sheer felicity,
Although your beauty captivates,
Your mightiness intimidates,
As legend tells the tales of yore,
Of fairies, devils, beasts and more,
That spook away who so decides,
To hike upon the rocky heights,
An enchantress thou art to thee,
Like la belle dame sans merci,
With haunting charm, you hypnotize,
You are a traveller's paradise,
Peaks camouflaged in white ambush,
