    It is a really good chance. I have already made a documentary about the women participation in politics in Afghanistan after the fall of Taliban. It is an excellent chance for me to follow it.

    I wrote a story for optimism in Pashtun society where i tried to negate shortcuts of life. Terrorism and counter actions are the main focus, where brain storming is the main aim. in country like Pakistan it needs more. I was in search of some one who can provide me financial help to true my dreams
