Gujjar kids from Rajouri district, Sonmarg, Kashmir, India by | 555,000 views

We met these kids on our way to the Thajiwas Glacier in Sonmarg. Gujjar are a nomadic tribe of shepherds who move up to the greener pastures in the hills in the summer. Come winter, they move down to the plains with their entire households and flocks. Due to this lifestyle, the kids usually miss out on conventional schooling. These kids had attended a nomadic school and as proof, they recited to us the alphabet, numbers and also some song and dance. They were happy to receive chocolates as their award.
