An car mechanic in his automobile repair shop in kabul, 2017. Hindustan Times of India claims a whopping majority of the 700,000 cars on the streets of Kabul are Corollas. 80 percent of those vehicles are the pint-sized Toyota workhorse, the report said, citing Gen. Asadullah Khan, head of Kabul's traffic police. It's nearly impossible to find a replacement part for a non-Corolla vehicle.
Sheer Agha is one of the oldest seller of kite in kabul.
He has been selling kites for 30years.
Afghans have elevated kite flying -- or "gudiparan bazi" -- to an art form, and one of its chief attractions is kite fighting.
Kite flying is a two-person affair. One person, the "charka gir," holds the wooden spool around which the wire, or "tar," is wound. The second person -- called the "gudiparan baz," or kite flyer -- actually controls the movement of the kite in the air.
