Festivals of Cholistan, Punjab Pakistan
      Mohammad Shafeeq
Abstract: Cholistan is the charming desert, locally known as “Rohi”, starting some 30km from Bahawalpur and is spread over an area of some 16,000 sq. km. which is mainly the part of Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar and Rahim Yar Khan districts and extended up to the Thar Desert in Sindh Province. Darawar fort is the major landmark of Cholistan Desert, located 48km from Dera Nawab Sahib and 100km from beautiful city Bahawalpur.Cholistan is presently inhabited by 100,000 semi-travelers moving from one place to another in search of water and fodder for their animals. The nomads belong to different tribes, though most of them are descended from settlers who came from Balochistan at least 200 years ago.Cholistan has very harsh climate with a very low rain fall annually and this has resulted the most of its part to remain barren.The people of Cholistan speak Saraiki language and their main wealth is their livestock. The livestock breeding helps to overcome the need of the milk and meat of the surrounding region.
