#GBCProspers story from #Hunza District of #GilgitBaltistan. "My name is Sonaina and I'm from Aliabad, Hunza. I've recently graduated from National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore. Being a Hunza girl, it came to my realization that Burushaski language is being forgotten and young Burusho, especially those who live in the cities, have adopted other languages as the primary means of communication. These days, the influence of other languages on Burushaski is just tremendous. To make my contribution to on-going efforts of preserving Burushaski, I did my thesis on "The Preservation of Burushaski language". This project is a vehicle for expressing my ideas that language is the foremost pillar of society to communicate and a creative structural solution can be provided for its preservation. My motivation to try preserving my own language in a visual form relates to the fact that many people have been fascinated about Burushaski and researchers have found it to be one of the very few isolated languages. Burushaski has still no standard writing system. There isn't a lot of written literary work but a number of oral traditions have been collected. Burushaski continues to be a language of self-identification among its speakers and despite many efforts, this fascinating language is endangered. My aim through this project is to preserve Burushaski language through visual means and to ignite the revival of the language in the daily lives of young Burusho living in and outside Hunza."

Pakistan filmmaker Fahad Kahut uses Gilgiti Cap (Chilasi version) to depict terrorists of APS Peshawar Attack in his new short film released on Youtube. There has been a backlash on social media by activists from Gilgit-Baltistan against the filmmaker for using the Gilgit traditional cap to depict the terrorists involved in the 2014 Peshawar school massacre.
