Many people around the world are trying to unlock the root causes of the abounding progress the people of Hunza in Gilgit-Baltistan have achieved.

The workers in the field plugging wheat plants are not illiterate peasants and harries of a Vadera, Chouhdry or Khan (landlord). Rather they are highly educated, modern, independent, well to do and heads of the influential state and private organizations, who also own the fields they are working at. Look at their face expressions and body language how proud they are both men and women, while toiling under the scorching heat of the sun in the fields. This is the realization of the taste of dignity of the work, sincere efforts, taste of taking ownership of their own destiny, self-help and vision for positive progress that serve as most important building blocks of a progressive society, healthy and wealthy individuals. This is the culture of Gilgit-Baltistan.
