Election in Afghanistan

Today was Parliamentary Election Day here in Afghanistan. It passed off peacefully except for 3 or 4 rockets fired at kabul and a few candidates shot dead. This is considered very peaceful in afghan standards. I didn’t see so much army uniform and Tanks in all my life as i saw in the past 2 days. But Life was normal.Yesterday evening i went around kabul to get an idea of what democracy means here.Not bad i should say. Afghans are catching up. Posters of candidates everywhere. And surprisingly a lot of female candidates in the fray!
India did its part by donating 50,000 undeletable ink pens.

P.S: Iam leaving on the 21st of sept to India onvacation.
