Unit Four | Shanduro Polo-The Sport Is Daring
There are no holds barred at the annual grudge match in northwest Pakistan`s "land of mirth and murder."
제4과 | 대담무쌍한 Shanduro의 격구(Polo)
파키스탄 북서부, “환희와 살인의 땅”에서 매년 열리는 그 한맺힌 경기엔 아무런 규칙이 없다.
[ 1 ]
By midmorning`s light, a military helicopter descends on the Shandur Pass, a 12,300-foot-high valley hemmed in by mountains whose jagged peaks soar another 8,000 feet above us. This part of Pakistan`s Northwest Frontier Province is usually inhabited only by hardy shepherds and their grazing yaks, but today more than 15,000 assorted tribesmen are on hand as Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf emerges from the chopper, a pistol on his hip. Musharraf, who has survived several assassination attempts, seems to be taking no chances in a province roamed by Muslim extremists. But still, he has come: after all, it`s the annual mountain polo match between Chitral and Gilgit, rival towns on either side of the Shandur Pass.
