    One thought on “The Pathans”

    1. The Pathans have no written history but they have thousands of ruins where the hungry stones tell their story to anyone who would care to listenA Beautiful narration by Ghani Khan (A Great Pathan poet)

    2. Written by Abdul Ghani Khan, One of the greatest Pathan poets and philosophers of the 20th century. This crafty little book does well to showcase the pathans contradictory nature and exposes some of the major inconsistencies in their culture and their struggle for trying to strike a balance between their culture and religion. Although published in 1947, much of it still holds true to this day. Its a must read for anyone trying to understanding the most complicated simplicity of all; The Pathans. [...]

    3. It is a great book by a great poet, I will recommend it to everyone -and I think everybody should read it. It gives an understanding and appreciation of this very complex people, who most people don´t really know much about (yet have an opinion about). The book has a genial humour and a simple and very convincing literary style. Read it!!
