Hello, I just want to congratulate you on putting up such a wonderful website about Late Gen R Maiwand. It is a treasure-trove. The photos are not only historic, they evoke so much nostalgia of a bygone era. It was like taking a walk down memorylane. There was so much grace back then in everything...
My own family traces its origin from Afghanistan. However, they migrated to the British India in late 19th century and a lot of family members had key associations in the military, bureaucracy and politics of Pakistan (and in some cases Afghanistan) since then. My father's older brother, for instance, served in many of the locations and embassies in the time period depicted as Pakistan's defence attache`. Hence, I can relate to many of the photos. Thank you for putting those up. I really enjoyed viewing them.

Its very nice to see someone is looking after the tribal infomation. This is a great job you are doing. It would be better if you collect some more information about what happened to each of the family members or what are they currently doing, career, education wise, etc! this would be a good example for us afghans to see where are we standing in life.

Hello Maiwand Family,

This must have taken a lot of time and hard work, so good job.
My mom, my dad, my two siters Yalda, and Hila as well as Nahid Maiwand (my cousin) are all sitting around and enjoying the family pictures.
Nicely done!!

First of all, I apologize for my english.
Congratulations for your website which is so wonderfull.
It gives me, who has allways been so lucky to live in my country, with my family, a great feeling of humility.
We never appreciate enough all the happiness we have !
I'm happy, and let's say... proud, to know some of you, and to have spent such a nice evening with them, and with afghan music.
Very far away from the terrifying image given by the Talibans, Afghanistan, thanks to you, represents for me only kindness, music, very good meals (thanks to Mayena), gentleness, full of attention, and laugh (specially the very typical and infectious "Maiwand" burst of laughter).
I wish a long long life to your website !
