patrolling Maimaiti Nur placed a mark on the roadside (July 5th).
Xinhua net Urumqi September (reporter Ay Nur) the Pamir Plateau in September, the Blizzard is very tight. Kirgiz border guard Maimaitinul Abler, wrapped in heavy military overcoat, crossed the glacier and gully, and walked quickly to the direction of the defense area of the outer mountain pass.
moonlight, like mercury, has a glowing glow on the endless mountains of Karakoram. Seeing that her husband's shadow disappeared, he went back to the little stone house reluctantly. The candlelight leaped in her moist eyes. The smell of the pancake in the house adds warmth to the silent Pamir cold night.
this is for the "garrison couple" living in the mountain pass outside the town of brenkou in Akto County, Xinjiang. At this time, only two or three family guards are still stationed here. Other herdsmen have already moved to the winter shelter under the mountain.
brun Kou township is located in the hinterland of the Pamir Plateau, with the height of more than 5000 meters above the altitude of the kudzuzkuo Tong, which is the key to Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan. It's covered with snow all the year round, the air is thin, and the natural environment is bad. Maimaiti Nur,
39, is the fourth generation of border guards, who has been following her father's border since childhood. Like the epic poem "Manasi", ancestors' experiences and legends were handed down.
grandfather once told Maimaiti Nur that when new China was founded, there were only three or four families, and the border had just been clearly defined. The task of the PLA was that it could not move the boundary monument to 1 millimeters. Since then, grandfather never left there in his life. During the rest of his career in
20, Maimaiti Nur experienced too much danger: Maimaiti Nur suffered frostbite on the road and was sent to the county hospital after several rescues. At the beginning of this year, he slipped and slipped on a foot patrol. A stone fell into his calf. He could not move for two months. So far, he has more than 20 scars on his body...
because of long-term defense, Maimaiti Nur has fallen into a serious "occupational disease" - rheumatic heart disease, tracheitis and pneumonia. This is also a worry for him: fear that the days of his own patrol will not last long.
the kiz kiz Kiz Autonomous Prefecture of Xinjiang, located in the kiz kiz Kiz Autonomous Prefecture of kzyzuytetu, is 1134 km long on the border, and there are 3265 Kirgiz guards like Maimaiti Nur.
a few years ago, the rural film screening team came to the village to play the movie "visitors on the iceberg". Maimaiti Nur's wife, the wife of the woman, looked at tears. She felt that she and her husband were just like Amir and KorAm, and loved their motherland with pure love. The flower that miraculously spreads on the snowy plateau also concentrates their youth like fire.
ingeniously, it was not long before the local border police station awarded Maimaiti Nur a set of camouflage uniforms, and only one of them in the village was honored.
the days in the mountains are too bitter, but the women in the Pamirs do not give in.
is also the offspring of the edge guards. Now, at the age of 34, she looks like 50 years old, and the traces of time are clearly visible.
Maimaiti Nur patrols often do not take care of their homes, so as to take over, cut wool, bake livestock manure to make fuel, carry dozens of kilograms of ice from a few kilometers away to cook for cooking, and see if the village is going in and out... These are all in silence.
she said, the only one she cried, was the snow disaster in 2012. Her husband was trapped deep in the mountains and had no message. She could only see the yaks and sheep in his home and died of starvation. It seemed that everything was gone...
as a result of centralized education, Maimaiti Nur's three children now go to the county town as well as other children in the village. In addition, more and more people go out to work and do business in villages. Many villagers settle down in nearby towns.
occasionally, the rich people in the village will persuade Maimaiti Nur to go down the mountain to find another way out. For this reason, Maimaiti Nur disagrees, but he can't help losing. At the moment, the children in the pastoral areas are gradually accustomed to the comfortable living environment and are increasingly unable to adapt to the cold and hardship of the plateau. He feels that ten years later, probably few people will be willing to defend the border.
"only those who live here know what borders are." Maimaiti Nur felt disappointed. "I hope the children will get out of the mountains and have a good life, but I don't want them to forget their ancestral traditions."
the starry sky of the plateau, pure and tranquil. The sky is boundless, and the land is bounded. In the stone house, Bbu Fagafaga Nati hummed "why the flowers were so red," and roasted her husband's camouflage at the side of the stove and folded it carefully on the wooden carvings she married at the door. On the other side, Maimaiti Nur's various certificates and certificates were placed neatly.
