History of village Ratto is very interesting. A way before there was a battle between Kala shadian and Bahri .It happend in sikhs era.There were a lot of people killed in that battle. Men from Kala Shadian were killed more than Bahri. In that era, principle of the govt was that bodies were counted from both sided ,and if one side has less men killed then more people was killed for balancing the both sides. A man from Govt came here for investigations. In those days a Man of Allah , Allad dad came here and he saw that people of Kala were killed in less countings but they say that our men are killed in more numbers than Bahri .so that they want revenge from Bahri. Baba Allah daad noticed it . People of Bahri went to him and asked for help. He said them to make more graves than Kalas men .
Govt officer came here and saw those graves and he ordered to dig up the graves to see the bodies.when he dug up the graves and there were bodies in each grave made by Bahri men.So bahri men were saved by Alladad. Then People of Bahri decided to gave his some area to Alladad .Then he founded Ratto and his sons are now a days living here. Grave of Aladad is available between Kala and Bahri nowadays too. Marth familly is in big numbers in Ratto which is from Alladad sons.
