Example text

From the time of Mohenjo-daro and Harappa, people have moved up and down the Indus River, across the Punjab, through the Khyber Pass, and into Afghanistan. The northern mountain areas have been more secluded, less influenced by passing conquerors and merchants. Even there, however, different villages and clans sometimes display an astounding variety of customs and attitudes. Given the great diversity that exists among the peoples of Pakistan, it makes sense to follow the sentiments of the horsetrader in the novel Kim, that the faiths and peoples are like horses: They all have merit in their own region.

The first (and luckier) group of men boarded the boats and sailed along the Arabian coast on their way back to Persia.
