Baluchistan

It seems that the Baluchis, in Kuwait - and for that matter, I suppose, everywhere else come from Baluchistan, a place of which I do not ever recall hearing.

Its a province of Pakistan apparently and contains the Makran desert through which Alexander the Great lead his troops at such terrible cost on the way back from India to Babylon and is also one of the places that Bin Laden was rumoured to be holed up.

It really is amazing how much information seems to fail to stick with me, I feel if I have done little but read and learn about Alexander for the last few months.
