▶ Hobby and Free Time of Kabuli Students

▶ October 30 Tuesday 19:00~20:00 GIC Hall, lF

▶ Speaker: Mazaher Akbari (Afghanistan)

Although for a long period of time people have experienced war in Afghanistan, recently there have been students who have dreams that show the brighter side of our country. They have gone abroad to study and after coming back they realized that our country has been introduced differently and negatively in media.

If you had asked Kabuli students what their hobby was and what they would have done in their free time during 2013 to 2015, the majority of the students would have probably answered reading classic and modern literatures, secondly listening to radios and watching movies (mostly American and English movies for improving their English, Iranian and Indian movies for entertainment) as well watching Television Serial Dramas (mostly Turkish, Indian, Korean, Afghan and Iranian ones). Some students would do sports in the early morning because a very simple exercise in the morning could help the brain cells stay active.

So, pointing out to these as someone who was raised in the heart of that kind of culture, I came up with the idea to bridge the differences and similarities in terms of free time and hobby.
