Beatles photograph symbolism

I came across a photograph of the Beatles and I was struck by the extraordinary symbolism of their poses. They are spelling the word, “Kitak”. I never heard of such word. This is quite a mystery.

It turns out that Kitak is in Khuzdar, Baluchistan, Pakistan. Check it out on Google Maps. There’s also some photos on the Google Maps page. There’s also a wikipedia page on Balochistan.

I’ll leave it up to all the Beatles fans to determine what connection the Beatles have to Kitak and Pakistan.

I also did a Flickr search for the work, “kitak”. There are many entries that have descriptions written in a non-English language. I sent them messages asking what “kitak” means. I will update this post when I receive any replies.
