THE KING AND QUEEN OF THE PATHANS

by JAMES R NAZ
(WEST YORKSHIRE U.K.)

In the year 327 BC when Alexander The Great arrived in Afghanistan, he met a young man and a young woman so enriched with goodness, pride, and courage that he began to doubt his own worth and would leave this beautiful country a defeated man, eventually becoming ill and passing away not too long after.


The defeat of Alexander was hushed up for thousands of years but recently evidence was found that turned the myth of the famous King and Queen of Pathans into a reality and gave children all over Afghanistan a role model from the past so they would always learn to be proud and stand their grounds in the future.

Yours,
James R Naz
