Going from Lahore to Shahdara Town and crossing the Ravi river bridge, one must turn his eyes towards a white, historical building covered with trees and crowded with many visitors; Situated at bank of bank of Ravi, this building is termed as Kamran Ki Baradari, the only significant architectural structure built by Prince Kamran exists today;
That was April of last year when, coming back from Shahdara town, I instantly turned my car on side road leading to this building, just to extinguish the thrust of my saunterer soul;

This evening poped up an email in my inbox, from the editor of LAFZ media about the next issue of LAFZ magazine; I hurriedly clicked the link and found my article featured from pages 136 to 141; A feel of relax and relief made a content smile over my face, and it lasts until I re read it once; Alhamdulillah, my second article on history made his place in magazine; Thanks to founder of LAFZ project Yasser Ali who widen his circle and added me to his team;
while moving on canal road Lahore, if you go towards Mugalpura underpass coming from The Mall, then you have to cross railway tracks over road; At this place if you look towards your left side, you’ll have a look over a tomb in miserablecondition. This is a tomb of Khan-e-Jahan Bahadur Jang Kokaltash. Daily thousands of people watch this tomb when they move there but very very few know what is it. I have been in Lahore for more then sixteen years and hundred of times i passed by this road, it comes to my mind always to see what is it and at last I go and found a mausoleum. He is of Nobles of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb Alamgir’s period and the name of that Noble is ‘Khan-e-Jahan Bahadur Zafar Jang Kokaltash’.
