Cave dwellers – the forgotten

Rohan O. Nazzreth from bamyan, Afghanistan describes a visit he made along with Jimmy (Dr. James. C. Dabhi), my friend, who is helping me discover these stories of a less known Afghanistan. This guest article is part of a series I am calling Afghan Life – lesser known lives and voices from Afghanistan, or the Afghanistan beyond the world’s military parking lot.

The wanderer's mind

Vidyut Kale comes back to Mumbai after 7 years of living in remote mountains as a nomadic horsewoman and finds herself homesick for the mountains….

I have been a professional outbound person for over 12 years now and it is one of the most satisfying professions I could be in. I have worked hard and often on high altitude treks, with horses on riding trails, cooking, guiding, translating, climbing, organising and in general wishing that a day could have 48 hours. I have been frustrated, tired, happy and every other emotion there is, but I have yet to feel like leaving the outdoors as and find work elsewhere.
