History

About 500 years ago during the time of Mughals, Baba Kulla of Nagra gotra came from Majha region and established this village. He was skilled in horse riding. He first came to village Ladhran then stayed here a servant of sardars. In a short time he became very popular. One day he went to a wedding. At wedding, nobody was able to dug up pole with Spear while riding horse. Baba Kulla dug up this pole and saved the respect of procession. When the women came to know that the young man was Sardars' servant and is from some other village, they started singing a song as a taunt.

Tatteyan di vi wadti,
Bharatteyan di vi wadti,
Kise pind de jatt ne.

After listening this song, Baba Kulla got tensed. He came back from the wedding and moved to village Mutton. The Sardar from there knew the baba. Sardar was very happy with him. So he gave him 2500 Bighas land. This land later expanded by another 700 bighas. 2 sons were born in Baba Kulla's home. In their name, there are two pattis of the village, Patti Ladhu and Patti Karma. The village Panchayat has 11 kille land. The village's welfare works are being done with the income from this land.
