The Beverly Hills of Afghanistan hosts Rumi Awards

News from the real Afghanistan you rarely read about in the western press. That’s because bomb blasts, burqas and corruption scandals sell while ritzy Afghan men and women socializing on the red carpet, dancing and singing on stage and presenting awards isn’t deemed newsworthy. This year’s Rumi Awards was held in Bagh-e-Babur Gardens under an open sky with flickering lights in the background. Beverly Hills has returned to Kabul. No matter what the enemies of Afghanistan do or say, the land and people will always be free!
