Default Kabul mayor wants children involved in cleanliness - 04-22-2012, 10:52 PM

Mayor Eng. Mohammad Yunus Nawandesh on Sunday said the Kabul Municipality had published thousands of books for children to create awareness among them about keeping the environment clean. He told a ceremony marking the International Earth’s Day at a private school in Kabul that the books in Dari and English languages had been published in financial support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
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.

Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

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!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620
