what is salajeet?


Answers:    Chilas is a small place and our two-hour stay came as a boon to some shopkeepers selling Salajeet. Salajeet is some sort of drug which people say cures arthritis and other orthopedic ailments. A myth about the drug having aphrodisiac properties is also very popular as a Pakistani journalist put it: "It is the desi version of Viagra." Everybody from our group was purchasing Salajeet but at the same time giving very stupid kind of explanations. While some said they were getting the drug for wife's back problems, some suggested their ailing uncles as the reciepients of the 'wonder drug'. It became a kind of joke and we laughed all the way.
