Lately, I have been avoiding all discussions regarding the topic of Taliban and how they have taken over the Swat Valley. I had refused to dedicate any specific post on my Blog as I just don’t have any words to describe my sentiments on the issue.
My parents, brother, & I have actually been to Swat about 15 years ago and although I was very young at the time; I still remember the mountains, rivers, people, & the innocence of the gorgeous valley.
Unfortunately, times have changed and today’s Swat is not the same anymore.
Below, this short documentary profiles an 11 year old Pakistani girl on her last day before the Taliban shut down her school in Swat.
