I have suffered exclusion from almost every that part of activities which are proven to be healthy for one's life. For example, I am forbidden to dance which is a way to joy and happiness, to sing or play any musical instrument which are skills, to play sports because shorts make my legs prominent, ( should one cut off her legs in order to play) to be friendly and nice with the opposite gender of mine. My culture does not allow me to be friends with guys and if I did they will call me whore and I will publicly be discussed as an alien someone not belonging with them. Then they would tell me to preserve and represent it. Someone please tell them that o dear brothers culture is a way of life " NOT IMPOSITION" of laws. Banning a mass population ( women) from healthy activities in the name of culture and back biting and discussing people is what I have seen my culture to be like. I find nothing civilized in that. APOLOGIES I do dance to my favorite music, I do sing, I have lots of guy friends and they are very nice and at the same time I am from Chitral. I don't follow one particular culture, I make my own culture,, represent it and also preserve it.
