 “We are negotiating with Ministry of Finance to give us some specific budgets so that we help the youth and writers publish their works,” Faizi said, adding recently Dr. Kamal Sadat acting minister of information and culture visited a private library and did a survey of the book reading culture as well as promised to increase the circulation of some valuable books so that around 5 to 6 thousands of book to be published within a week.

It is good to hear that the reading culture is changing in one of the most destroyed nations worldwide. But I will not agree that the technology will not help in this regard. If Afghanistan will not adopt the latest educational trends, they will lack behind.
