Thank you Sundeep.
Despite challenge from Pakistan, we have little serious scholarship on the country. @tilakdevasher1 is doing a fantastic job explaining Pakistan in his books.

Thank you. I hope the book meets your expectations.
Tilak Devasher is one of India's veterans on Indo-Pak affairs and all of his previous books were invigorating. Erudition with experience reflectively written! The Pashtuns (2022) promises a great read! @tilakdevasher1 @ThePrintIndia @HarperCollinsIN theprint.in/softcover/new-bo…

Onto reading this latest book by Mr. @tilakdevasher1. Having read his earlier book on Balochistan, I know this one shall be worth every word, as well. Especially, as I've taken a course titled Comparative Politics and Policies, as part of my postgrad at @Kennedy_School. #Pashtuns

Thanks Gaurav
Read this wonderful article by @tilakdevasher1 about The Pashtuns. Who are they? What is their culture & history? What is the concept of Pashtunwali, the code of the Pashtun? Fantastic read 👇 chanakyaforum.co/3BqON36
