I love to write and share on history, culture, food on my blog and twitter.
History is not a burden on the memory but an illumination of the soul.
Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate, and hate leads to violence. This is the equation.

Rohilla means mountain dwellers. Ethnically they made up of different tribes of #Pashtuns originated frm #Afghanistan. By start of 20th century, they lost their language. Now can be found both in India & Pakistan as Urdu/Hindi speaking #Pathans with their roots from west UP
