The Kalash are an Indo-Ayrian minority group in Pakistan, living in remote valleys adjacent to the Pakistan border. As non Muslims they come under pressure from extremists who feel these women should be in hijabs and be subservient. They are, in the contrary, confident, boldly dressed in their traditional clothes, and educated. Education is very highly valued. This is a school. Kids have UNICEF bags. The back view of the girls in their daily headgear coming off the field from a game of cricket in school PE lesson.
The picture at the bottom is an imposter ( me) at a village ceremony with local friends.

A delightful and colourful series Diana.............it's lovely to see everyone in tradition dress and I like the contrast with the UNICEF back-packs. I really hope they are left alone to live their lives as they wish to!

You look beautiful in the final PiP...............the traditional dress really suits you.
