My ancesters are from Jalalabad.
I can understand their pashto but Kandahari pashto is hard for me to understand.

Thats is why pashtuns Parents need to speak pashto with their kids.
My cousins and my family want to Pakistan and My cousins couldn't speak pashto and I could, So Everyone was speaking to me .
You feel lonely when you can't speak to anyone.

Some Afridis and Mehsuds don't have the decency to switch to a more understood dialect when talking to you. The problem is that these two dialects have most of the regular "alif" alphabets replaced with "wow" and vice-versa.

So raghalaye becomes roghalaye (hagha roghalaye dai)
parun becomes paraan
nan saba becomes non soba

Also, waye becomes yaye... (as in hagha se yaye?)

And it's just impossible to understand sometimes, to be honest.


"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be".

"Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives".
