Origin

History

Wuruki is a curious name. It means " little one " in Pukhto, and is met with in two or three of the Afghan tribes along the Indus, as will be seen farther on. The occurrence of this name here in connection with Warashpiun or Ashpun, and Khajin, which are the Boriskki and Khajuna of Dardistan, to be noticed at a later stage of our inquiry, suggests the idea of its being only another and corrupt form, perhaps in the mouth of strangers, of Borishki.
