Searching for Buddha in Afghanistan

An Afghan archaeologist insists a third giant statue lies near the cliffs where the Bamiyan Buddhas, destroyed in 2001, once stood.  Clad in a safari suit, sun hat, hiking boots and leather gloves, Zemaryalai Tarzi leads the way from his tent to a rectangular pit in the Bamiyan Valley of northern Afghanistan. Crenulated sandstone cliffs, honeycombed with man-made grottoes, loom above us. Two giant cavities about a half-mile apart in the rock face mark the sites where two huge sixth-century statues of the Buddha stood for 1,500 years. More>>>

Afghan Women Seek Internet’s Virtual Veil Amid Threats

“I just make myself more invisible in the society” while “becoming more visible”
on the Internet, Mahboob, 26, a computer science graduate of Herat University, said of her tactic for coping with opposition in a country that faces potential upheaval after international combat troops leave at the end of this year.

Streets of Afghanistan Exhibition

Streets of Afghanistan is a cultural, bigger-than-life art exhibition that highlights the beauty and soul of the land and the people of Afghanistan while challenging existing perceptions of the war-torn country. A ground-breaking collaboration of Afghan and Western photographers through life sized photography.  Photography is a means of expression. In a place where expression is often limited, allowing photographers to see their work in their home country is not just allowing them to take part in an art exhibit, it’s a form of empowerment. More>>>

Afghanistan’s ‘most honest man’: Low pay and no promotion

Despite working as a traffic officer in Kabul for over 20 years and being deemed “incorruptible” by multiple governments, including the Taliban, Abdul Saboor has never been promoted. Saboor, 52, might be a better symbol for the sacrifices that an honest man must make in Afghanistan to follow the law. In two decades, he has received only one minor promotion. His salary, unaided by bribes, is $200 per month. His toes are black after being run over several times. His throat is perpetually sore from Kabul’s dust and pollution, but he struggles to afford medicine or hospital visits.  See the Video>>>

Dream of a better Kabul

Ahmad Zaki is a professor of architecture at Kabul University. But in upstate New York, thousands of miles from home, he is filling a different role: that of a student of urban planning. “If you see a picture of Kabul City, you’ll realize that the city is badly in need of urban planning expertise,” says Zaki, a Fulbright Scholar and architect by training.  “There are traffic jams everywhere. And when it rains, due to lack of a drainage system in place, many parts of the city become un-walkable and many roads get flooded,” he says. More>>>
