PASHA THE FORGOTTEN GUIDE WHO LED AUREL STEIN TO MIRAN
AND HOST OF OTHERS WHO ULTIMATELY GOT NO CREDIT AT ALL
Sir Aurel Stein embarked upon a remarkable journey from Lahore. He discovered the splendour of Central Asian frescoes and put his name on the great art discovery of their times. Obviously it was financed by others and others led him to the sites. Miran Fort was a remarkable discovery with many frescoes intact after centuries. Today the pigments are studied for their durability etc as well as technique. But it was charted and the artist TITA isolated as one of the artists.
The typical Western hypocrisy of immediately connecting the name TITA into TITUS of Roman origin. Is there any proof of this conjecture? Of course not. Tita is merely Tita and should be read as that. When the name Titus is discovered the name can make that conjecture. Tita did not sporing from Rome and landed in Miran. Imagine a gruesome journey from somewhere to there and the lust for creativity and legends and reality. And Tita’s work is not available on the internet? Sally Ann Rosenberg looking out for same. Internet is not a replacement for solid research. Kanwal Khalid tells me that the best of research is no longer available on the internet. Removed to deprive poor nations of facility or something else! Who knows?
