Nesar Ahmad Bigzad was born to a Hazara Mongol father and Qezilbash mother in Kabul on NOV 2nd, 1989. His father’s job which is as an Acquisition & Policy Manager along the family often moved between Bamyan, Ghazni ,Wardak Province and abroad to Peshawar Pakistan. In 1999, his parents Moved; one reason for this was that his father was a Former Military Officer in Afghanistan Ministry of Defense. The Movement was very traumatic for Ten years old Nesar Ahmad; he would later say it was the most traumatic incident of his life. After the war, despite suffering under the Local War occupation, Nesar Ahmad later tracked down his father to Peshawar-Pakistan and supported him financially with assistance of his Elder Sisters & Brothers. From late 1999-2007, Nesar Ahmad  went to English & Computer Courses , Institutes, school in Pakistan & Afghanistan; in Mid 2003 his Father  moved the family to Kabul in the Afghanistan , where he thought it would be safe from Refuge Determination.

However, in 1995, Kabul was overrun and the country fell under Taliban occupation until liberation in late 2001. During this time, Nesar went to school at the Niswan Afgshar High School–Kabul, where he studied and also learnt General Afghanistan Secondary Education. At one time he considered teaching Computer, English, and School Subjects as a serious career occupation. During the occupation, it was said he would often Participate in various School Seminars, Conferences, Workshops  locations, helping to raise money for the underground Humanitarian movement.

“I have memories. More than once I was at the Bus station seeing trainloads of NATO Troops being transported back to their Countries,, seeing all these faces over the top of the wagon.

The harrowing experiences of war left a profound mark on Bigzad; it was one reason for his later commitments to the USAID – Welfare Association for the Development of Afghanistan.

About This Website:

Welcome to the Emerald Foundation web site. This web site looks into some of  global issues that affect everyone and aims to show how most issues are inter-related.

There are will be more  articles on this site, mostly searched by myself and put here. The issues discussed range from trade, poverty and globalization, to human rights, geopolitics, the environment, and much more. Spread over these articles, there are over 7,000 links to external articles, web sites, reports and analysis to help provide credence to the arguments made on this web site.

Why I’m doing this?

Living and working in the Afghanistan and coming to India  was an amazing experience for me. However, I quickly became concerned at what appeared to be rather poor quality mainstream media. International coverage appeared incredibly lacking and when available, very narrow. And so, in April-2010 this web site (initially just something to do in order to learn about developing web sites!) started.

The mainstream media is one of the most important aspects of a functioning and participatory democracy. It helps us form our views of the world around us, influence our opinion and let us learn about all manner of things we may otherwise never come across. It is incredibly beneficial, but in today’s world it also has real problems. Just as good quality and diverse mainstream media enhances democracy, poor quality and narrow mainstream media can negatively impact democracy.

About this website

The goal of The Afghanistan Analyst is to provide an online research portal for scholars, students, journalists, policy-makers, NGO/humanitarian workers, members of the armed forces and others who want to better understand Afghanistan.


 This website focuses primarily on sources in English, with a few sources in French and German.

The next page in this section (link is available below) goes into why I am doing this web site in more depth.

A few people have asked how the site is constructed, whether I purchased a content management system, or what. I will attempt to answer in such a way that I minimize the technical jargon (though I don’t think it can be entirely avoided):

  • I write the software for the site entirely by myself (“hand-coded”)
  • I mainly use technologies known as XML and XSLTas link or PHP.
    • XML allow the storage of structured data, so almost all pages are stored in this format (quite similar to HTML, the language of web pages, but XML gives me some more flexibility and power in terms of how I define the way data is stored.)
    • XSLT is simply a series of rules designed to work with XML so that an XML documents can be converted to another document, in this case, into HTML, so that web browsers can show you the web page.
    • This helps ensure consistency between page to page, and also to implement things like the navigation. Otherwise every time I want to make a certain type of change to the entire site, I would have to modify each and every single file on the web server! Instead, through its rules, XSLT is like a template for all the pages.
  • I used technology that runs on the web server known as ASP to load XML documents and XSLT rules, run those rules against the XML documents, and show you the resulting web page.
  • In August 2007, I switched from Microsoft’s proprietary technology to an open-source alternative known as PHP, which runs on Linux servers. [Using open standards such as XSLT made that very simple to do, too.]

Some have asked why I used Microsoft’s proprietary ASP technology rather than an open-source alternative for so long.

It may not be an acceptable answer to many who ask, but when I originally started the web site (as a means to learn about, and practice web development for my day time job as a software engineer), most  company also  used this ASP technology. Since then, that is what I have always used, and so the experience from full time work complimented my site, and importantly, it worked the other way.

For a long time, I have been interested in ensuring the site uses more open standards and technologies and have started to make such a move. For example,

  • At the end of June 2008 or Precisly I resigned From L-3 Communication , I redesigned the site completely to take advantage of “Web Standards” to help improve the site’s accessibility and maintainability. (See this site’s section about the site redesign for more details on that.)
  • With the site being run off open XML and XSLT technology I was able to swap ASP technology for PHP to serve as the “glue” for the XML/XSLT.

Disclosure: I have nothing to gain by linking to these sites!

Readers may notice that I often link to OneWorld.net articles, or passages from the Institute for Economic Democracy’s various books, or other articles from some of the above organizations. I have nothing to gain by doing so. Many such links were placed before I became a partner or developed any kind of relationship with them.

In short, my independence is strictly maintained and when I do link to resources from these organizations, it is because I truly wish to link to them as further information sources for you to follow if you wish. This is no different to how I add links to the thousands of other web sites and articles from within my text. I do not personally gain anything from those organizations by linking to those sites and sending visitors there.

As a result, when linking to these sites, I do not feel it is necessary to have some kind of “disclosure” sentence next to every single such link. It also detracts from the rest of the text, and I hope I have explained myself here, openly for anyone to know. Also, practically speaking, it would be hard for me to go back to all the various articles that mention these and retrofit such disclosure statements, especially when I had placed many such links before becoming a partner.

Please also note: I don’t belong to any political party or organization in any way. In addition, these partnerships and relationships (see above) do not require me to link to, or promote them in any way, and I strive to remain independent.

Social Networking at Glance :

By : Nesar Ahmad Bigzad

What Is Social Networking?

Social Networking. . . It’s the way the 21st century communicates today.  Want to know what it really means?

 Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision, if you will. Although social networking is possible in person, especially in the workplace, universities, and high schools, it is most popular online.

This is because unlike most high schools, colleges, or workplaces, the internet is filled with millions of individuals who are looking to meet other people, to gather and share first-hand information and experiences about cooking, golfing, gardening, developing friendships or professional alliances, finding employment, business-to-business marketing and even groups sharing information about the end of the Mayan calendar and the Great Shift to arrive December 21, 2012. The topics and interests are as varied and rich as the story of our universe.

When it comes to online social networking, websites are commonly used. These websites are known as social sites. Social networking websites function like an online community of internet users. Depending on the website in question, many of these online community members share common interests in hobbies, religion, or politics. Once you are granted access to a social networking website you can begin to socialize. This socialization may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.

The friends that you can make are just one of the many benefits to social networking online. Another one of those benefits includes diversity because the internet gives individuals from all around the world access to social networking sites. This means that although you are in theUnited States, you could develop an online friendship with someone inDenmarkorIndia. Not only will you make new friends, but you just might learn a thing or two about new cultures or new languages and learning is always a good thing.

As mentioned, social networking often  involves grouping specific individuals or organizations together. While there are a number of social networking websites that focus on particular interests, there are others that do not. The websites without a main focus are often referred to as “traditional” social networking websites and usually have open memberships. This means that anyone can become a member, no matter what their hobbies, beliefs, or views are. However, once you are inside this online community, you can begin to create your own network of friends and eliminate members that do not share common interests or goals.

As I’m sure you’re aware, there are dangers associated with social networking including data theft and viruses, which are on the rise. The most prevalent danger though often involves online predators or individuals who claim to be someone that they are not. Although danger does exist with networking online, it also exists in the real world, too. Just like you’re advised when meeting strangers at clubs and bars, school, or work — you are also advised to proceed with caution online.

By being aware of your cyber-surroundings and who you are talking to, you should be able to safely enjoy social networking online. It will take many phone conversations to get to know someone, but you really won’t be able to make a clear judgment until you can meet each other in person.  Just use common sense and listen to your inner voice; it will tell you when something doesn’t feel right about the online conversations taking place.

Once you are well informed and comfortable with your findings, you can begin your search from hundreds of networking communities to join. This can easily be done by performing a standard internet search. Your search will likely return a number of results, including MySpace, FriendWise, FriendFinder, Yahoo! 360, Facebook, Orkut, and Classmates.
