Kabul mayor wants children involved in cleanliness - 04-22-2012, 09:52 PM
The books carried interesting stories about environment protection, greening efforts in cities, poems and literature subjects, he said.
The Mayor said the books were being distributed to public and private schools in Kabul to enable children to share the knowledge with families and play an important role in keeping the city clean.
The municipality had launched efforts at cleaning and making green the Kabul City, where 30 recreational parks would be established having entertainment equipment for children, said Nawandesh, who revealed more than 240,000 saplings of trees would be planted as part of spring tree plantation drive in Kabul.
Residents accuse municipality officials of failing to keep the city clean, but the department blames it on fewer staff to carry out cleanliness operations effectively.
Nawandesh said they had created a commission to probe into government lands occupied by powerful individuals.

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!
