Some of you may have seen that our fine editor, Samhita Arni has been on a sabbatical from Out of Print. And you may have wondered why. Her piece in First Post will give you some sense of what drew her full attention. Written in response to the horrific killing of Sushmita Banerji, Samhita gives her perspective on life in Afghanistan.
The pace and intensity of Kabul comes vividly alive as she highlights the differences between her experience and what she supposes Sushmita's was, bringing to us a sense of the intoxication of the country and what it was that might have taken Sushmita back there despite the dangers.
