Abstract: The present work seeks to examine a lesser discussed aspect of the Afghan rural life since the 19th century till date. The whole span of time, to reiterate, was overwhelmed with diverse wars and conflicts, which by and large, changed the whole facade of countryside. An isolated though but newlinecontented space of Afghanistan got plunged into fighting either because of the imperial designs, relentless Afghan resistance or the most unscientific strategy of the Taliban. In all cases, however, the human capital was causality especially in rural areas, newlinewhich were usually away from the coverage of the electronic and print media because of country s complex geo-physical frame and absence of modern means of communication and transportation. Little wonder to see the country transforming from a peaceful zone to a space characterising human wail newlineand cry. From a localised tribal power structure, the country is shifting to a structure embodying exotic influences and intervention. In fact, latter course is newlinespeedily changing the entire indigenous fabric thereby marginalising the local potentates to an appreciable extent. In sequence, the local warring factions would be hustled into playing the chicken game in the foreseeable future. Every Afghan city, town and village would witness the presence of alien elements with a worthwhile role in the otherwise Arcadian socio-economic and political setup. newline newline
