Eons ago, when human beings stepped on this earth and his survival were contingent upon the nature. He could get his requirements full-filled by the assistance of animals. He had a strong desire and feeling to merge with living objects and form a society.
Mahergar with its civilization is very old and the Baloch tribe, who came from unknown places, made Baloch-istan their permanent dwelling-place. Even if we peruse their history, so we will find that Mahergar is much older than the rest of the tribes like Persian and Arabs.
The catastrophes and daunting events such as tremor, storm, eruption of volcano and flood contributed to bring human beings together and created a sense of mutual understanding, love, compassion, empathy among them and they shared innovative ideas with one another about a new life.
The enormous animals such as Dinosaurs faced extinct existence because they were cut off from their environment and did not have relation with other animals around them.
When human being first set back his foot step on this planet, was in the form of ghost, and did not have a visible appearance on earth which later on changed into tribes and conglomeration of different tribes formed nation. Where people had common language, but sometimes people were multilingual in a single nation. They had their own culture, interest and land.
Baloch is also a nation whose land touches various borders, and stretched to vast areas. Baloch land is no doubt rich in natural resources and as well as fertile and productive for agriculture, but sadly, it is not under their control because Baloch Tribe lost its kudos and worth.
Gone are the days when Baloch tribes would elect a tribal chief on merit basis, so the elected upright man would run the affairs of tribe with honesty and served the people with their rights.
The arrival of the Diabolic Britishers to Balochistan had adverse effects on democratic system and destroyed it completely. The tribal system was replaced by hierarchy, where the heir would consider the awaiting thrown his father’s legacy and they were bent upon their violence and commotion in the peaceful area.
The Britishers gave rise to social injustice. Linguistic problems above all spread mess all around. The tribal system received a set back and socialism lay moribund.
In this way we reach to a conclusion that in fact, the tribesmen can only raise the tone of tribal system, but it was intrusion of the Britishers to which tribal system lost its authenticity and faced a sharp decline.
