We are pleased to present the first Burüshâski Electronic Database, a platform to introduce the Greater Yasin Area of Gilgit-Baltistan to the world. Through this project we volunteer to represent our identity and ambassador our region to the cyber world.
We believe that the Yesterday became a history and the Tomorrow always stays a mystery. But whatever little steps we take today, give a little insight into how the mystery of future will look like. This project is a little step towards our future.
Here we also strive to build a community contributed online Burüshaski Dictionary, an effort that can benefit the cultural future of our generation. It might require a lot of work but we are optimistic that over a period of time, we might gather a lot of information about Burüshâski of Yasin too.
We have made experiments with other websites and online platforms that represented the people of Yasin, and this project is different in way that it embodies the best practices of those earlier platforms.
The team that currently works on this project has been actively but silently engaging with the Cyber Yasin [people of Yasin on facebook, twitter and online forums] in order to educate itself about the way people of Yasin think, act and react — it helps align the work here with that minimum collective agreement we already experienced.
While our work is based on the hope that we will grow and thrive on community contribution, we understand that every supporter of our work may not necessarily be a genuine and long lasting contributor. That is fine only if a minimum moral support remains assured.
We volunteer our time, effort and resources to make this project a success story and we assure our visitors and supporters that no business, money or political interest is involved in the work of BEDb.
This website has been in place since 2003, in the form of www.yasinvalley.com, and we remake it to befit ourselves in the modern trends of cyber psyche as well as the traditions of indigenous existence.
Thank you very much for stopping by.
