[26 Photos] Local QinCqi or Rickshaw, Bandar Kecil Battagram & Uniform Murid Sekolah Berwarna Oren Terang | Northern Pakistan 2013 | Day 1/6 – Part 7

Kami tiba di Battagram agak awal juga. setelah menempuh pelbagai halangan dan rintangan saya berjaya juga sampai ke Battagram. Inilah kali pertama sepanjang kira-kira 4 tahun saya menjejakkan kaki ke Battagram. Battagram masih lagi berada di dalam Wilayah Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa. Selepas Battagram kita akan memasuki suatu Wilayah yang lebih asing dan “darker” dikenali sebagai Wilayah Indus Kohistan.

Saya akan kisahkan kenapa ianya agak menakutkan di dalam entry seterusnya nanti. Seumpama melangkah ke alam Mordor rasanya. Sebelum ini saya pernah melalui Karakoram Highway, namun inilah pertama kali kami singgah dan mengambil gambar di Bandar Battagram (Battgram). Mendengarkan namanya sahaja sudah mengujakan kan ? Belum lagi tiba dan menjejakkan kaki sendiri di bandarnya. 🙂

Di Pakistan memang banyak motor beroda tiga seperti gambar di atas. Kenderaan ini menggunakan cc yang rendah, umpama motor sahaja sebenarnya. Kenderaan ni ada yang diimport dari China diberi nama QinCqi. Rickshaw ini memang berlambak-lambak di jalanan. Namun di Islamabad, rickshaw ini telah diharamkan. Mungkin disebabkan oleh bisingnya dan kawalan trafik ianya diharamkan di Islamabad. Namun di Rawalpindi (twin cities of Islamabad) masih terdapat banyak rickshaw sebegini. Saya sukakan rickshaw yang ada seat penumpang yang mengadap ke belakang. Saya pernah menaikinya di Lahore dan saya amat menyukainya. Senang saya nak mengambil gambar dari angle penumpang. Namun ianya agak bahaya sebenarnya sebab kita mengadap ke belakang dan rickshaw bergerak ke hadapan dengan laju. Sebelah tangan kena memegang handle di tempat duduk dan sebelah tangan lagi memegang kamera.

Semasa kami sampai di Battagram, kami perhatikan terdapat ramai murid-murid sekolah yang berpakaian berwarna oren terang. Tak pasti pula saya samada ianya adalah pakaian sekolah standard di Pakistan. Yang pasti saya jarang ketemu dengan pakaian oren terang sebegitu di bandar-bandar besar seperti Peshawar, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad mahupun di Abbottabad. Cantik pula warna oren terang sebagai uniform sekolah. Satu kelainan di sini. Di Battagram juga banyak terdapat sawah padi basmathi. Memang di sini ada sungai yang mengalir deras yang akan digunakan untuk mengairi sawah-sawah padi di sini. Hanya padi beras basmathi sahaja yang akan ditanam di Pakistan. Jika anda nampak sawah padi di sepanjang Karakoram Highway, bermakna anda telah tiba ke Battagram.

Sedikit maklumat berkenaan penduduk Battagram melalui wikipedia :

The area is mainly inhabited by pashto speaking Pathan tribes, the Swati, these people came from Swat and settled in Tehsil Battagram. The Swati has a good social status in the valley. The Pashtun tribes are divided in so many sub-tribes some famous of them are Ghouri Khel (Most of them living in Phagora village), Younas Khel, Khadar Khani, Behram khel, Raza khani, Malkaal, Mula Khel, Shams khel, Deshan,Syed, Qureshi, (subtribe) and Sahibzadgan and nikakhel Akhon khail living in battagram. The people are very hospitable. They have the small enmities of lands. Often they fought for the land but for last one decade the trend to fight for the land is finished. Often the people solve their problems with Jirga system in villages. Most of people living outside the country like Saudi ArabiaUAEQatar, United States, United Kingdom and many other countries of the world. People of Battagram don’t have any proper source of income.

Apa-apa pun kita layan dulu gambar-gambar berskala besar travelogue kali ini di bawah ya !
