Pashtoons ( Khans )

The Great philosopher Pashto poet Ghani Khan wrote a little skittish poem about Pashtoons that depicts their temperament given below:

The great pot maker of fate was sitting in heaven.

This great potter of fate was making a donkey,

when the order came to make a Khan.

So the potter cut off its tail and sculpted its ears,

on its forehead he put a spot of temper

and in the donkey`s brain he put the disease

of being ahead of everyone, being a leader, and

then he put a beautiful turban on his head and

shooed him towards the world.
