Drawing from a deep well of Indian and Afghan knowledge, Nasiri has compiled a capitulating story of his father’s escape from Afghanistan at age twelve in 1929 to India while Nadir Shah usurped Kabul throne from Habibullah Kalakani. Kalakani was illiterate and the only Tajik Amir in the history of Afghanistan. Nasiri’s grandfather, Malik Zaman Nasiri of Farza, Kohdaman, was a supporter of Kalakani and was executed by Nadir Shah along with Kalakani after he lost the throne, following a nine-month hiatus.
In 1980, walking in his father’s footsteps after almost fifty years, Nasiri goes on to narrate the story of his retreat from Afghanistan to save his life and that of his young wife and eighteen-month-old son from the clutches of Marxist regime of Kabul, who overthrew the ruling republic of Mohammad Daoud in a bloody coupe in April 1978. It was an age of tumult, Nasiri writes. Nasiri lands in India with the desire and urgency to migrate to the safe haven of the United States, his lifelong dream and subject of his dissertation when graduating from master’s at Aligarh University India.
Published by Page Publishing, Afzal Nasiri’s spellbinding tale is a deeply personal tale that endeavors to explore the social and political disturbances of Afghanistan’s history from the point of view of an outsider, and how these disruptions have impacted the lives of the innocent civilians who were forced to flee their homes for safety. This expertly paced tale will keep readers engaged as Nasiri brings to life his father’s incredible journey.
