More detail about Afghanistan
Afghanistan - Suffering midst warm hospitality
Afghanistan finds mention even in the ancient Indian epic - "Mahabharata" The people of this nation are known to be warm, friendly and hospitable. They treat their guests with utmost respect and love. The culture is rich with music, poetry, arts and much more. Off late, the women of Afghanistan have been suppressed by the Taliban regime. Even though they don't rule the nation they have been spreading tyranny time and again and posing a great challenge to global peace.
There were problems even during the days of the cold war and even recently after the 9/11 Afghanistan hasn't been able to see the bright rays of sunshine yet. There is, not much education facilities for children and the health care system is very poor. People cannot move around freely and religious fundamentalism is oppressing the expression of the common man.
A beautiful country with beautiful mountains and amazing landscape where the natural resources of gold, precious and semi-precious stones lay buried under the earth, these resources haven't been made complete use of, by the government. The constant invasions have stalled the economy of the nation and domestic life doesn't find security and peace.
The poverty is very high and people live mainly on agriculture and the nation is dependent on foreign grants. Trade and business with other nations is minimal which is not enough to suffice the national economy.
Building roads and infrastructure with the help of other nations has been taking place in Afghanistan. People still are suffering due to lack of housing facilities, clean drinking water and electricity. Schools are very less and education has been suffering here.
Afghanistan citizens have taken interest in sports like soccer and cricket and they have been gaining recognition as a national team.
Opium production is very high in this country and the main income is derived through this crop.
