Back to collection Phil Borges Spirit of Place Collection - Pakistan

Alipsha, 98
Karimabad, Pakistan

Even though Alipsha lives alone, his thirty-five grandchildren and twenty great-grandchildren make sure he is never lonely. He lives in the Hunza valley where the inhabitants are well known for their longevity. To this day Alipsha still spends several hours working in the fields. Although he has always worked as a farmer, Alipsha is a highly respected Trangfa (a mediator). He said that most of the arguments he was called in to settle revolved around water rights. His grandson told me that Alipsha kept many men from spilling each other’s blood.
