Portraits: Gabol children, Rannikot

Via Flickr:
Approx. 500-600 villagers live within the formidable walls of Rannikot fort (also pronounced locally as Runnikot). These people belong to Baloch tribe of Gabol and are fiercely independent. And much unlike the Sindhis around them, their women usually do not perform any purdah (i.e., they don't cover their faces from strangers). In fact, purdah system is not enforced across Balochistan province, which lies just next to this area.
