Weekly Mahraka

Getting people to talk..........

Mahraka is a term used in Khowar for meeting in a formal setting and involve in discussion. The art of discussion is dying away due to the advent of technology and busy life patterns emerging with the changing time. CAC is trying to bring people together and discuss various topics about Chitral and beyond in an educational set up where the participants learn, un-learn and try to challenge many dominant conceptions in an academic way. This is a continuation of the old tradition of Mahraka in Chitral with the addition of new paradigms of academic rigour. Mahraka are held online for now but there will be more in-person Mahraka as well. Here you will find video archives of Mahraka and reading summaries.
