Peshawar - A Kebab Vendor
An interesting photo which I took in Peshawar during the Afghan-Russian war in the early 1980s. Obviously the poster on the wall is very telling, depicting a Kalishnakov in the hands of a holy warrior (mujahideen) carrying the torch of freedom. Such posters, with different themes and extremely graphic art were seen scattered throughout the old city of Peshawar, expressing the senitments of the populace as disparate groups joined together to oppose the Soviet invasion.
