On Edge: The Afghan Passage

Sandeep Kumar (Author)

Quintessentially, On Edge is a work of life changing experiences for the author in Afghanistan, of interaction with real people on the ground, stories of their travails and triumphs. It has been endeavored to project that the situation in Afghanistan is far more substantive than the perceived security-political paradigm; that bodybuilding competitions, music festivals, wedding ceremonies and Hamam rituals is the other, unexposed reality of the country.

Above all, it is a very personal piece about the author's own inner challenges to live new adventures, to acquire new experiences, to understand the context of a country in making after three decades of war, to network, to gather stories, to make memories.

Structurally, the work is interwoven around periodic newsletters providing updates on the evolving situation in Afghanistan. Against this larger backdrop, are laid out the human element stories encompassing the Afghan actors on the ground, together with the author's own personal efforts to come to grips with the beauty and pain of the Afghan passage.

This is a non-fictional work.
