Afghan – Nation and Narration in Post-Colonial Postmodernities

"What I want to emphasize in that large and luminal image of the nation with which I began is a particular ambivalence that haunts the idea of the nation, the language of those who write of it and the lives of those who live it. It is an ambivalence that emerges from a growing awareness that, despite the certainty with which historians speak of the 'origins' of nation as a sign of the 'modernity' of society, the cultural temporality of the nation inscribes a much more transitional social reality."
(Homi K. Bhabha, Nation and Narration – Introduction)
