Wait, wait July!

Enayat Enayat | 06:04 UK time, Friday, 30 July 2010

The month of July has left very quickly; I could not blog enough articles in my one month probation but however, I read many interesting comments from the numerous BBC English Learning funs whose enthusiasm gave me more power to continue writing. I wrote on sport, wedding culture, insecurity, youth, Education System, and International Commitments to the rebuilding of my country. Here are many other unsaid issues which I couldn't share with you but I hope I will be given the chance once again to release some more knots of our social and cultural life. I am very thankful of every one of you who has accompanied me until my last blogging. I really learnt many new words, expressions and idioms from Kim's instruction and I am sure you did so.

In a country like Afghanistan, it is very difficult to take the breath of a real comfortable life where every minute ahead is suspicious and no one knows what will happen next. War-lords are still active, those parties involved in the civil war are yet can to destabilize the situation, the insurgence is more powerful than it was few years ago and the rate of unemployment and illiteracy is still another thread to challenge this war-ravaged country.
Just 30 years ago my country was an example of stabilization and development in every field of life but the miserable imposed war has leaded everything to its worse feature.
I read many comments of sympathy from many of you while I was blogging some stories, thank you all for that, but to be honest, my people never keen in hearing sympathy from others; they also want to have a developed and free of war society to share their joy and happiness with the rest of the world. and I apologize for one of my blogging story (Daddy Daddy, don't forget to bring my school shoes) which made you sad, because I read some of the comments had advised me not to write such kind of stories again and this is because their happiness is threaten by my posted story which is already mixed with a nature that has grown up in the miserable war. I hope the day will come when my country will be taking every breath in peace and prosperity and there will be no need to post such a sad story. Once again thank you all for joining me.
Warmest Regards
Enayat Safi

    Hi Enayat!

    Many thanks for your blogs during this month. It was naturally interesting to learn more about real life in Afghanistan from you, not from the news, if you understand what I mean.

    I don't know if you did it purposely, but I have to say sometimes your writing was provocative in a good sense of the word. It provoked us to think and react with more comments!

    Have you ever thought about journalism? In my opinion your style of rising a problem is appropriate for this professional environment.

    Anyway, whatever you will choose to devote yourself, I wish you success and good luck!

    And it'd be great to be in touch here after your month! I hope, you'll be able to find a couple of minutes to post your point of view!

    See you around!

    Best wishes,

    Hi Enayat,
    Thanks for your very informative blogs. The month was really great one for me as my next modest result on the way to learning English, so while our friends didn't snatch up again all words from my poor dictionary I have to be fast to say to you thanks...
    P.S. I hope you haven't noticed as "commentator" I was a little bit irregular, and if you have noticed I apologize for that to you.
    Best wishes,

    :) Hi my Dear Friends!
    I love all of you and inform you: "What I have written, I have written!". (c) (Pilate). And don't you answer me back...
    Oh no, that's just too much. It's a bad writing, isn't it?
    Well, it would be better if I will be try to justify myself: Dear Jan, in actual fact my words were said by jokingly, just I'm always forgetting to place the smilemarks. Of course I know you are seldom missing the point, the tiniest little bit, not often; and I know also the word 'statesman' is spelt with 's' after 'e'. Please, don't be hurt by me. I meant no offence.
    To Pary: Thanks for your support, I'm always feelling you are my good-hearted friend.
    Good day, Friends.

    Emat, hi!

    Thanks for the explanation! It's quite clear now about your style of writing! I'd say "put the smiles wherever you want to"!

    Actually my question was mostly about the first part of the sentence. I was just curious, why you're against Journalism!

    Best wishes,

    Hi Friends,

    Enayat is really lucky a guy in a sense that he's got a lot of friends this month. And, the friends are doing exactly that what they should do now. I'm really enjoying the comments especially from Jan, Pary and Emat. It's fantastic.

    Let's see what Enayat says finally about it.

    Best wishes to all.

    Dear Friends,

    Thank you all for your kind and informative comments.
    Jan and Emat are both right. I have background of Journalism, I was working for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty as a journalist for many months and still involve in one and another way in printing media. I am also part of political process especially among youth of my country. I struggle country wide for lasting peace, unity and democracy as well. I do hope to keep in touch with you all to exchange our views peacefully.
    Many Thanks

    Hi Dear Jan,
    :) when could I have said against journalism? When I wrote 'forget about journalism' I just meant Enayat would be more useful for Afghanistan if he build a career for statesman than his deeds-to-be as an journalist. If we read attentive his blogs it's not so difficult to note that he has all abilities for this, and I like his for the first time in ages liberal-minded aims in Afghanistan.
    Enayat, we believe you and your friends. May success attend you!
    Best wishes,
