About & Contact

I am a Kabul- and DC-based researcher and blogger.

Previously, I’ve worked as a researcher for an international human rights organization. I have served as the executive director of a Washington, DC-based foundation and assistant editor at Iran Times. I have written for the UN Foundation’s UN Dispatch and blogged on the Huffington Post.

This blog primarily deals with human rights, development, security, nation-building, policy, democratization, the media and issues pertaining to Afghanistan (and sometimes Pakistan and Iran).


I actually read (and respond to) queries submitted through this form.

This is a personal blog and all views expressed here are my own and do not reflect those of any of my employers.

  11. I really enjoyed this review, thanks fo sharing 🙂 This book is now added to my list of “must reads”. I really appreciate the idea of putting a face on the people who have lived in Afghanistan during the conflict. I think for most people it’s easy to lose sight of the human side of war that is hidden in the statisitics.

  12. chk out this book “Durand’s Curse: A Line Across the Pathan Heart” by Rajiv Dogra, Publisher: Rupa Publications India
