“An inverted question mark hangs at the back over the heads of the two quizmasters who are firing questions at two young students, one a boy, the other a girl. This is the general knowledge round. What happened at the Bonn conference in December? Hamid Karzai was selected to lead Afghanistan, the boy answers correctly. We move on at dizzying pace to another slick-haired crooner singing a song made famous by Afghanistan’s late, great musical hero, the singer Ahmadzai. The crowd, largely made up of young students and their teachers, many of them women, is in raptures.”
