The Promise of Paradise- A Collection of Poems

The Promise of Paradise is a collection of over 140 poems, through which the author chronicles the suffering decades of imposed conflicts have inflicted on the people of Afghanistan. The collection largely draws on the author’s own life hardships as an Afghan refugee in Iran and Pakistan to tell the tragic saga of the Afghan people, especially of the Afghan women and girls, over the past decade. Each poem in the collection reacts and responds to an unfortunate event in Afghanistan, depicting scenes of unprecedented suffering of Afghans victimized by terrorism, abject poverty, and a culture of impunity. In a nutshell, the recent history of Afghanistan, punctuated by many human tragedies due to an ongoing war and its dehumanizing politics, is creatively narrated in the collection.
