Pathano Ke Roman Pashto Folk Stories in Urdu translated and compiled by Farigh Bukhari and Raza Hamdani. This book contains a collection of Pashto famous folk stories in Urdu language.

Many folk tales are popular among the Pathans like other nations of the world. There are also a few of these countless stories that are liked in all Pathan societies due to their strong impression. Some stories have a general status which are common in every area, district, tribe, town and village. But there are also some stories that are limited to one region or tribe.

Pashto folk tales are all organized in poetic form and published, which are easily available in the market. Various poets of Pashto language have put these stories into poetic form. In addition to local or regional stories, there are many stories that have been translated from other languages which are not related to the Pathan community. Most of them are tales of jinns, giant and fairies, fairy tales, myths and legends. Some have been translated directly from Persian literature. In this regard, Gul Bakauli, Gul Sanobar, Laila Majnoon, Shireen Farhad, Bahram and Gul Andam, Gulfam Shahzada, Saif-ul-Muluk Badi-ul-Jamal etc are worth mentioning. These stories are all in the form of poetry.

The collection under review is the Urdu version of the stories that related to the Pathan community. These stories are a strict selection of folk tales that are popular among the Pathans and are only the product of the imagination of the Pathan storytellers. Some local stories have also been experimented with, transcending fiction and everyday life. But in the election that is being offered, such things will be rarely seen. There are a few things common in these Pashto folk tales. Love and affection, sincerity and determination, a sense of nationalism and commitment.

This spirit is reflected in all stories in different colors. As far as the main character is concerned, all the stories revolve around an extraordinary and beautiful girls and in that sense, the woman is on the nerves of our Pashtun storytellers. However, this woman is an ideal woman. Possessor of great character, very pious, lion-hearted woman who protects her tribal traditions in all circumstances.

Such stories are common in different nations, tribes and societies of the world. No story can meet this standard if they are examined in the light of history. The folk tales of the Pathans also fall under this category. Examining them on the basis of history will also undermine their literary, traditional and classical status. The advantage of these stories are that we can estimate through them: Pathan before centuries ago. What was his lifestyle? What were their habits and characteristics, way of life and society? And what were its resources?

The stories in this collection have been translated in Urdu form Pastho language. It is not a translation of the original content, but an attempt to convey the content of the story and the intent of the narrator in fictional language. However, there are some places where local colors have been retained. This is probably the first attempt at its own style in Urdu literature. We hope readers will appreciate this effort.
