Gilgit-Baltistan is one of the
most scenic place and considered treasures of nature.
There have been efforts
of people to visualize these treasures of mountains to deferent shapes, like
rivers moving like snakes, animals of different kinds and practice of people.
For centuries local and travels have transformed and transferred their
fantasies of the mountain on the stones, mountains, woods and some time made
them part of their houses. Some of them developed potteries, stories, events
and sayings etc. while some of those talents used parts of these natural
phenomena as natural resources e.g. stone pots, wooden pots, leathers and woolen
cloths etc. now question is that do we lost all the talents after having
education or the nature has gone away. Really, both are in place but we need to hunt the talents and encourage them to undergo for their talents. For instance
one person I knew started creating poems from class three but he never realized
that he is a poet. First time he came to know that he is a poet when his
teacher praised him in the class saying that he is a good poet. Unfortunately
the education system in Pakistan
also does not support to hunt talent and facilitate the children as per their
talent. All the students are derived with the stick of knowledge never focusing
on the talents, skills and to help them transfer m those talents and skills in
to attitude and back to knowledge. Children get a lot of knowledge, which they
never use in practical life. Psychologists help students in understanding their
abilities’ in several counties but students in our country do not have this
opportunity as well. There is only one opportunity which can be used to find
out aptitudes and talents; if not specifically but in general. Students can be
given awareness through awareness sessions and inviting students for
competition in different areas of learning and talents. These can be creating
pointy, writing assays, developing stories, event writing, designing,
identifying historical patrons, fine arts and handicrafts etc. Looking into the
canvas of education in Gilgit-Baltistan AKESP is comparatively the only
organization where all thee domains of learning is taken in practice. The only
thing needs is to find out students talents, make them realize and facilitate
the to grow accordingly. Therefore, we propose a project to realize and harness
these talents available in children of Gilgit-Baltistan.
