Gakhari Tribesmen With a land so heavily invaded and settled as India, it's no surprise that the secret to a tribe's origin is well woven in a tapestry of a thousand different peoples over thousands of years. The Gakhars of the Punjab are one such design upon the woven canvas of India, and the strands that their image originates from are an uncertainty to all but the Gakhars themselves. They find their ancestry in the semi-mythological dynasty of the Kayanians, the rulers of Ancient Persia in the times of the Avesta and the Shahnameh. Prior to their arrival in the Punjab, it is believed that a son of a Kayanian ruler conquered a part of Tibet, and his descendants would rule and extend their dominion into the Kashmir region. With the arrival of Mahmud of Ghazni into Northern India, Gakhar Shah, a son of the ruler of this wayward Aryan Clan, would come into the services of Mahmud, and upon gaining possession of the Potohar Plateau, would remain there and give rise to the Gakhari tribe. Others dispute that the natives of the Punjab's Potohar Plateau gave rise to the Gakhar Clan. Whatever the case, the Punjabi traditions of aristocratic, agrarian warriors remain true for even the simplest of Gakhari tribesmen. Hearty from a industrious existence as farmers of the meager villages across the Punjab, these poorer Gakhari fight as fleet-footed skirmishers, wielding short stabbing spear along with their bamboo javelins. They are not without merits on the battlefield, but remain men of ill discipline, moral and abilities, useful as skirmishers and harassers, but little more. While one might argue the lack of armor in the Indian subcontinent is a help instead of a hindrance, their lack of protection and ill discipline forces them to behave as irregular skirmishers, eager enough for battle but lacking in commitment.
