Sameksha Instagram – In my last trip to Kashmir, met some amazing innocent, simple locals… would like to share a fascinating story of the role of nature in shaping human behavior was mentioned in Marco Polo’s diary. It said that in 1272 when Polo was traveling through the different parts of Western Asia, he noted that the people of Kerman were polite, humble, and well-behaved, while the people in Persia, which was in the neighborhood, were cruel, unkind, and threatful.
When exploring the reason for this stark behavioral difference, the people said that it was the ‘soil’ that was responsible for it. And as the story goes, when the King ordered soil from Isfahan in Persia and kept it in his banquet hall, his men started to shower each other with curse words and assaulted their folks. After seeing so much in their lives, I feel it’s their soil and heavenly beauty of nature that they are still holding up. 🙌🏻 #loveandblessings #kashmir #kashmirdairies | Posted on 10/May/2022 22:36:53
