Culture Of Afghanistan
The culture of Afghanistan has been around for over two millenniums, tracing record to at least the time of the Achaemenid Empire in 500 BCE. Afghanistan translates to the "place of Afghans" or "land of the Afghans" in the nation's official languages, Pashto and Dari (Persian). It is mostly a tribal society with different regions of the country having their own separate tradition, reflecting the multi-cultural and multi-lingual character of the nation. In the southern and eastern region, as well as western Pakistan which was historically part of Afghanistan , the Pashtun people live according to the Pashtun culture by following Pashtunwali, which is an ancient lifestyle that is still preserved until today.

    Culture of Afghanistan
    Culture of Afghanistan has been influenced by many aspects. For centuries Afghanistan has been used by invaders as their gateway to India and other central Asian countries. Afghanistan has been the part of several mighty and culturally empires, which left their legacy in the region. Rich and long cultural heritage has been left in Afghanistan by Greeks, Persians and Indians.
    Islam had its impact on Afghanistan culture. Islamic threads were left in the art, music, architecture and poetry of Afghanistan. Due to constant battles and wars the cultural assets of Afghanistan have blemished in recent days. Afghans are expert in embellishing their daily life articles with fine arts and calligraphy.
    Buzkashi

    Buzkashi is one of the ancient games played in Afghanistan. Buzkashi literally means "goat killing" and the name was derived from hunting of mountain goats by champions on horseback. The game originated from the time of Ghengis Khan, one of the rulers of medieval Afghanistan. Provinces of Maimana, Mazar-i-Sharif, and Kataghan are the most popular destinations for Buzkashi. Due to the religious belief women are not allowed to watch the game. There are mainly two types of Buzkashi played, Tudabarai & Qarajai.

    Afghanistan - Culture, Traditions and Customs
    The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is located in Central Asia. Its culture, traditions and customs are unique to its geographical setting as a landlocked country. It is flanked by Pakistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and China... The glorious land of the Afghans is now the focus of much political attention and social divide. However, a closer look at the region makes it easy to understand current events. The people here flaunt a culture and tradition that are the result of ancient trade and migration. The customs that have emerged and survived greatly compliment its geostrategic location, and a long tryst with invaders and individual empires. Modern Afghanistan is well grounded in its beliefs and customs, even as it is open to change. This buffer state is no more one; it has emerged as a power to reckon with. Afghanistan has always influenced world cultures and heritage , more than their military or political mindset. A rich tradition in ancestry and pride in personal honor are characteristics that offer a glimpse of the land and its people. Modern Afghanistan is hardly any different from the older version, physically. However, the influence of neighboring countries and the remnants of a terrible civil war have made the people vary of foreign intervention. The people of Afghanistan are friendly and hard-working. Their lives and vocations are centered around the home. Women are treated with utmost respect and honor.

      Unlawful instruments and goods: Afghanistan, culture and the Taliban
      Spring 2003 by Shorthose, Jim
      BEHIND THE NEWS This brief paper offers a dialectical account of the cultural policies devised by the Taliban during their rule, which led to the banning of 'unlawful goods and instruments' such as musical instruments and films. It suggests 3 aspects to this dialectical account. Firstly, an analysis of the global context against which these policies were devised and conducted. Secondly, an analysis of the specific policy content of the various cultural agencies involved. Thirdly, an analysis of the impact these factors had on the everyday lives of Afghan people and communities. It tries to show in detail how these 3 aspects stand in a dialectical relationship to each other. It is argued that such an approach contributes to a greater understanding of the meanings behind such actions to takes us beyond any initial repudiation of the Taliban's cultural repression. A 'dialectic of the local and the global' (Giddens iggi) suggests that global processes have local implications and affect the way people live and act. In trying to understand the cultural universe that designated musical instrument and the like as 'unlawful instruments and goods' we can apply three levels of analysis for such a dialectical account. Firstly, the general political, economic and cultural context within which (often global) agencies act and conflicts are played out. Secondly, the specific cultural policy content that is maintained by the various governments and cultural agencies locally. Thirdly, we can point to the actions of communities in these specific locales, in terms of the texture of peoples' everyday lives.

    Identification. Location and Geography. Afghanistan is a land-locked Asian country of 251,825 square miles (652,225 square kilometers) bordered by Pakistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and China. The topography is a mix of central highlands and peripheral foothills and plains. The country has an arid continental climate. Summers are dry and hot, while winters are cold with heavy snowfall in the highlands. Precipitation is low, although some areas in the east are affected by the monsoon. Most of the country is covered by steppes, with desert areas and some patches of cultivated land. Pastoral nomadism, subsistence mountain agriculture, and irrigation are practiced. At the end of the eighteenth century, Kabul became the capital. It is located in a wide basin on the road linking India with Central Asia. Demography.
