THE ROOTS OF VILLAGE NAMES IN PUNJAB- Article in Punjabi


Gulam Mustapha Dogar a Pakistani writer living in UK has discovered the roots, the principles underlying the naming of a village. After reading his article one will know why a certain name ends with 'Pur' 'Garh' 'Kot' 'Nangal' etc. He informs us why there are Talwandis, Pandoris, Wadalas, Winds, Panj Grais, Dokohas, Satkohas, Daskas,  Aana or Jaana, Miani etc. We feel the principle determined by Mustapha might not only be pertaining to Punjab villages but most villages in India, Pakistan and may be Bangladesh. We wish someone translates this beautiful article in English.
The Article has been published by Ajit daily of Jalandhar in instalments.
