A girl from Malakand stitches portraits on flour strainers


Almas Khanum Jan, a girl hailing from Haryan Kot in Malakand has introduced a new, never-tried-before art. She stitches portraits on flour strainers and has left the spectators in amazement.
The essence of art descended in her from her father Talib Jan, her brother, and other musicians, and artists from the family.
Their family is referred to as Chand walay by the local people because they reside at the hillock.
The creative girl from Malakand initiated portrait making and paintings just one year ago and now she is an expert in the domain. She has made dozens of portraits and hundreds of paintings so far and she is optimistic and enthusiastic to make more masterpieces.
The portraits and masterpieces of Almas Khanum have been settled on display at numerous exhibitions which grabbed the attention of art lovers. She has also got acknowledgment and praise for her outstanding poetry.
The multi-talented girl has conquered hearts with her tremendous abilities and aptitude, but like other girls in a Pakhtun society, she is also confronting resistance from people in her area with prudent mind set who believe that fields like portrait making and art are not convenient for girls. However, Almas Khanum is brave enough to combat these stereotypes and concentrate on her work. She pulls great inspiration from support of her family, particularly her father and brother, to persevere her passion. She said it is crucial to ignore distractions and focus on promising work to partake positively towards society and serve as an example for other girls.
