The Kalash live on the fringes of northern Pakistan, the only ones in the region not following Islam. Their genetic make-up is so pure and distinct, that they are unlike other human races, thanks to their evolving DNA and rare alleles. Few look as Caucasian as this girl, but their gene pool creates great variation.

#10 This is one of my utmost favourite Bollywood films! It is called 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. It is about a very religious Hindu man who found a lost Muslim Pakistani girl who cannot talk.
