Cheel Dokhtaran

A heroic tale of the forty Hazara girls.

Authored by John Yunus Salehi
Edition: 1

John Yunus Salehi, in his debut novel, boldly tells the harrowing story of an entire peoples' resistance to brutal oppression. Set in the deep valleys of Urozgan region in the heartland of Hazaristan (Hazarajat) during the late 19th century, Cheeldokhtaran explores the unique cultural dynamics in play between the various social classes and their effects on the beliefs, movements, and daily thoughts of the book's characters. The novel vividly portrays the passionate struggle of the heroine, Shereen, in her last stand against the forces of an impending evil fixated on consuming her homeland and way of life.

Although a work of fiction, Cheeldokhtaran's nuanced message in some ways serves as a cogent metaphor of Afghanistan's current social conscience-bringing to light decades of suppressed ideas and thoughts.
