Karlan or Kalanai is the Fourth Member of Pashtun folklore Ancestry.[1] The Legend of Karlan in the folklore[2] says:

"In his infancy he became an orphan and after losing his family he alone survived and was adopted by the Ormur Tribe. The tribe gave him shelter & protection & raised him like their own son. When he reached a marriageable age, the chief of the Urmar Tribe made Karlan his son in law."[3] But actually He is not the son of Ghurghusht nor Ormur.[4]

Karlani Tribes Genealogy & Family Tree.

Legacy[edit]

Karlan had two sons named Kodi and Kaki,then Kodi had two sons named (Dilzak) Dilazak and (Shamak Khan) Orakzai from whom the first branch of Karlanri tribes descend.[4]

Tribes[edit]

The Karlanri tribes are revered by other Pashtun tribes for their naturally enhanced bravery and fighting skills. About the Khattaks of today's Lund Khwar, Sir Olaf Caroe in his book entitled "The Pathans 55O B.C.-A.D. 1957" printed St Martin's Press 1958 by MacMillan and Company Limited, writes at "The Greek Historians 39":[5]

..........."Taken together, the Khataks and the Shitaks, who now have a common boundary close to Bannu, cover a stretch of territory as large as that held by any Afghan or Pathan tribe, whether Yusuf-zai, Durrani or Ghalji. From the Khatak settlements around Lundkhwar, close to the Malakand Pass, to the Shitak villages in Upper Daur in the Tochi, the distance is over 200 miles. The wide extent of their present territory, their large population, and the association of both groups of tribes at one time or another with the rich oases of Bannu and the Tochi, suggest sufficiently their importance in this family of peoples. They did not spring from nowhere in the night. They are Karlanris."
