Pa Khair Raghley پخېر راغلې

پخېر راغلئ
Starey Mashaye

Salaam. Welcome to Tor Khan's blog ...

... to introduce me - I'm a son, a brother, a father, a husband, an uncle, a nephew, a cousin, a neighbour, a friend and an educationalist.

I'm also a slightly displaced Pashtoon who has lived most of his years amongst the rolling hills of Yorkshire. Some years ago, I made the break and since then have lived and worked in Doha, Minnesota and Abu Dhabi, travelling a little and returning for short stints to Bradford between each venture. Right now I'm in the UAE, but life's a journey ... and I'm a traveller ...

Here you'll find postings to things of interest, musings and captured moments that tell their own story. You'll also find a good dose of joy, wonder and contemplation.

I'll leave you with a couple of lines from Rahim Shah's Sandara Da Pukhtoon (Song of the Pashtoon):

Kabul, Ghazni, Paktia or Kandahar,
For all Pashtoons, Afghanistan is mother and father.
(penned by Feroz Afridi)

Take care and enjoy.

    I wish I'd known about your blog ages ago! It's too good! My heart jumps with peace and joy when I see blogs and other websites by and about Pukhtuns.

    Thank you. Thank you again and again!

    I extend a warm welcome. This, in the tradition of Pashtoons, is your home too.
