tHE hISTORY oF bARRUKAT!!

GOOGLE " BARRUKAT" @ 9 :10 PM 4/01/2008
ZERO RESULTS....
barrukat is a especial word used for hardcore bhopaliis...
I was searching its origin for months now...
finally i find it in the book called " The Begums of Bhopal"
by Shaharyar.M.Khan
It goes like this -- p11

"Thus one day around 1712 , a phalanx of 50 Mirazi-Khel tribesmen , fiercely loyal to the young pathan and his family , together with his father , wife and five brothers rode into berasia to the sound of welcoming drums and joyous celebration. This event saw a new chapter being written in Bhopal's history as these Mirazi-khel tribesmen became the pioneer settlers of Bhopal. They were called barru-kat pathans of Bhopal .(literally the shrub dwellers) who initially made their homes with thatched reeds.It was they who fought for , made sacrifices for and loyally served Dost Mohammed Khan and his descendants to become the original pioneering families of Bhopal.Apart from his father and Mehraj bibi, five of Dost's brothers joined him in Bhopal.They were Sher , Alif , Shah ,Mir Ahmed and Aqil . All expect Aqil died in Battle."
