I'm not sure if she has been back to Afghanistan.

I really like the embroidery.  Does anyone know where I can buy something like that?

Does anyone else think it's ridiculous that Pashto-speakers in Afghanistan have their calendar in their own language yet the "Farsi" calendar is actually Arabic??

Dear Ahangar,  Can i find this Dowyoma Saqawi book somewhere in the UK?  I really need to see what they have written in this book.

I just realized how illegal it is to write anything like this in Germany.  If this book was really published in Germany these people could potentially be arrested and/or deported.

What word were you trying to search, PORS?  There are only about 4,000 entries (still a lot for Pahlavi!).

On the drop-down menu select "Concise Pahlavi Dictionary" and then in the 2nd text box (not the first- that's for Pahlavi -> English) type in the word.  For example, I entered "bear" and I got this as the 6th result:

6     xirs    [hls | N xirs] bear.

Sometimes you will get multiple results, sometimes nothing.  It really depends on the word.  I finally looked through this topic and noticed that some people were asking for the Persian word for potato, etc.  Easy- There are none.  Why?  These things didn't exist until they were brought from the New World (S. America)  hence many of these having foreign names.  Same thing goes for any kind of technology (duh) but some people still forget this. 

Hope that helps.

I don't see any credibility or source to your definitions. Everybody can put it out there and bring logic to that and say "list all your words you wanna know their origin."

If you want to convince people, bring some sources.


- Pors

I completely agree. PLEASE let us know where you are getting this misinformation from because so far most of your origins have been incorrect.

"fikr kardan (to think) - arabic origine - khiaal kardan, kamaan kardan, andishidan, pendan kardan"
Khiaal is an Arabic word.

Gorbah is not an Arabic word.  It is from the Pahlavi, "gurbag."

Gul is NOT a Turkish word.  It comes from Pahlavi.

A friend and I were compiling an online Dari etymology dictionary.  It only had about 40 entries but it was all information we had verified- hence only a small number of entries.  Much of the information was from a Dari etymology dictionary I own.  I really enjoy researching Persian etymology.. it simply is very fascinating.  There is currently an online Pahlavi dictionary located here:
I'm sure you guys will enjoy it too :)

Personally, I admire her work and the fact that she isn't trying to make money or become famous by entering some Miss World contest (She could easily win too, she is gorgeous). 


I love love LOVE this outfit so much!  Her Tajik hat is so cute on her too :) Does anyone know anything about this style of dress?  I've seen this dress before but never so form-fitting.  It's usually very loose like in this picture:

I'm not even sure which city in Afghanistan this style of clothes is from.  I found it in this one collection of pictures of dresses from around Afghanistan but the cities are not labeled.  I guess I will make a new topic for us girls about clothes :)

Khatera Laily Yusufi is the daughter of a doctor father and a journalist-presenter-writer mother. She was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. At the age of five she got her first experience of TV when she appeared in a children’s programme.

 In 2006, the versatile journalist and Arts worker ( member of "culture-mirror-afghanistan") organised an international literature seminar together with the Afghan embassy in Berlin.

 In her speech as a youth representative she suggested establishing a House of Culture for the intercultural exchange between Afghanistan and Germany and the Ambassador of Afghanistan to present the speech of Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan which was send to "culture-mirror-afghanistan". The Afghan president and foreign minister and the ambassador welcomed her idea.

 In 2007 she was asked to represent the Maulana House, an institution dedicated to the famous Persian writer Rumi, in Germany. Rumi is also known as Maulana Balchi, son of the Orient. She sees Rumi’s work as a great inspiration for life.

 In 2002 she was awarded “presenter and media face of the year” .

 In the same year she received the title of "Miss Afghanistan Germany" (Dokhtare Shaayestae Saal") because of her commitment to social matters in Afghanistan, her work for the promotion of culture and for intercultural exchange. Her multilingualism and the use of her Dari language skills also contributed to her winning the title which was awarded for the first time till now.

 But due to her respect for Afghan women and their culture, Khatera, who is committed to the cause of oppressed women, did not participate in the Miss World contest.

Khatera Yusufi wanted instead to support the rights of Afghan women and orphans. She worked together with former European Commissioner Emma Bonino who had been in charge of the Humanitarian Office and has since been supporting human rights organisations such as the Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker, Freundeskreis Afghanistan e.V. and UNICEF.

 “If we all work on ourselves and remain true to ourselves this will make the world a little bit of a better place already!” Khatera

 In 2003 Global Beauties wrote about Khatera: “Khatera is a real beauty who maintains modesty. Her culture and her country are important to her and she is not interested in superficialities.”

 Frankfurter Rundschau (renowned German news paper) named Khatera beside other beauties such as Miss Germany in 2002 as one of the beautiful women with a magical aura.

Even before September 11, Khatera, an ambassador of peace, tried to raise awareness of fanaticism and terrorism with action days and demonstrations and she criticized the West’s indifference to Afghanistan.

 In 2000 the young lady showed courage: she was one of the organisers of the big Berlin demonstration against terrorism and appeared as a speaker.

 A poem was written about her commitment and Karwan magazine honoured Khatera with an article in 2002 where they emphasized her commitment, her courage and her talents.

 Khatera has written articles and produced TV features about the abominable deeds of the terrorists. She has pleaded for the liberation of Afghanistan and the protection of cultural identity.



“A country without culture is like a person without a soul.” Khatera

Very interesting!  Did you research all of that yourself?  Care to cite your sources?

Please let us know if there is a way we can directly provide financial help to that poor family.

Parsistani doesn't have any sources.  Everything he posts is just a foaming rant.  I don't know why anyone takes him seriously.
