If you dont believe you can come and watch it with your own eyes

if you want to learn how to

dance

come and ask a shupun
if you want to know

how to sit

come and learn from a shupun
If you want to know how to

respect

come and visit shupuns..
If you want to know how to be

civilized

come and see the shupuns…
Shupunz are the people living in paradise!! so lucky we are!!! 🙂

Shupun means Shepherds in wakhi language

and it refers to the wakhi people whoz lives had been associated with cattles and they were the best shepherd live in the

Mountains around Wakhan and spent lives as nomades.

Shupuns also refers to the very basic principal of Wakhi people that is

“Caring for each other mutually “

and on this principal every thing in a wakhi society is still set, So the wakhi people will be known as Shupuns till the time they sustain this very beautiful feature of their culture inside it. I pray it remains there forever.
