Winter tourists of Chitral !

Chitral  -Weird looking beggars of Panjabi complexion have been seen roaming in bazaars and educational institutions of garam chashma, introducing themselves as flood affectees of Gilgit-Baltistan. It is weird because instead of coming here in good season they have chosen the harsh winter. Most of them are teenagers, 12 to 16 years of age. However, there is one exception A popular Panjabi figure in his fifties, seen here two years ago, has reappeared in Garam Chashma bazaar selling cholas  to school kids for Rs.20 per plate which the local people consider as blessing in this time of high prices. The local people are very happy with this man and have resented the police attitude for questioning him. They are not concerned about his credentials as long as he sells them good food at affordable price. This writer has not met him but he is amazed over his popularity among locals and his love for Chitral, where he now wants to settle in. --Reporters diary, Garam Chashma Chitral, 05 Dec 2010
