Today I stumbled upon a blog written by an Afghan lady named Sara Basharmal who was brought up and currently studies in London. Her insightful blog gives vivid, first hand, heartfelt information about Afghan women in Afghanistan and those living abroad. She’s written a series of articles that you may be interested in reading, such as:
Behind the Burqa–an article about Afghan fashion in which she includes fantastic photos and the following quote: “I want to show people that Afghanistan is not all about war, orphanages and Burqas. It’s also about textiles, history and culture. It’s about beauty” – Zolaykha Sherzad
Young Musicians–an article about Afghan music and Afghan musicians/singers (both the history of and present day) including links to modern samples.
Book Review—On the Road to Kandahar by Jason Burke.
I look forward to keeping up with what Sara is blogging about.
