The Kalasha are an indigenous community residing in three valleys found at the foothills of the Hindu Kush Mountains in Pakistan. Their ancient religion is deeply connected to nature, and they celebrate the changing seasons. Once beyond the monsoons, their isolated valleys are now routinely flooded due to climate change. In 2015, devastating floods destroyed fields, homes and Kalashas’ livelihoods, threatening the very existence of Pakistan’s smallest indigenous community. We document the annual harvest festival, which this summer was followed by the historic floods that inundated much of Pakistan.

غیر معمولی بلند درجہ حرارت شسپر نامی پاکستانی گلیشئیر کے ڈرامائی پگھلاؤ کا سبب بنا اور اب پانی حسن آباد کے پل کو خطرے میں ڈال رہا ہے۔ موسمیاتی تبدیلی اس نظارے کو تیزی سے بدل رہی ہے اور ایک قدیم طرزِ زندگی خطرے سے دوچار ہے۔ ہر کوئی اسی بارے میں بات کر رہا ہے، مگر جانتا کوئی نہیں ہے کہ آنے والا کل اپنے ساتھ کیا لا رہا ہے۔ دیکھیئے ڈاکیومینٹری پہاڑوں کا گریہ یہ فلم پاکستان کے ان لاکھوں افراد کے نام ہے جوحال ہی میں موسمیاتی تباہ کاریوں کا شکار ہوئے اور زندگی کے علاوہ سب کچھ کھو بیٹھے۔ Last May, record temperatures provoked a GLOF or glacial lake outburst flood in northern Pakistan, sweeping away bridges and villages in the valley below the Shisper glacier. Higher up the mountains, a semi-nomadic people called the Wakhi were leading their yaks to summer pastures. Their traditional lifestyle has also been heavily impacted by climate change. We profile both the scientists and the villagers on this global warming frontline. Episode director: Karim Shallwanee Series director: Andrew Tkach Locations: Gilgit-Baltistan region, #Pakistan

میرا رخ اس مقام کی جانب ہے جہاں کرغیزیوں کی روح بستی ہے، بلندو بالا آلو ٹو کے پہاڑوں اور برف کے تودوں کے درمیان۔ جانے کتنی پشتوں سے ہمارے اجداد نے ہمارے لیے اس سزمین کو محفوظ رکھا ہے، یہ اتنی انمول ہے کہ قومی ترانے میں اسی کا گیت گایا جاتا ہے۔ میں اپنے ملک کے قیمتی ترین خزانوں میں سے ایک کاسرچشمہ کھوجنے بڑھ رہا ہوں، وہ ہے عظیم دریائے نارین Season 2, Episode 8: Kyrgyzstan’s Naryn River, born near the Petrov Glacier, begins its journey next to a massive gold mine, long, troubling environmentalists. Although the river is very important for agriculture and power production, the environmental awareness of those who depend on its health is low. Raw sewage is routinely dumped into Naryn River. A drought and melting glaciers would deplete the Toktogul reservoir, jeopardize the viability of the power station. We talk to those trying to save a river in serious condition.
