In India’s foreign policy, regional integration is of utmost importance. In the last few years, the breadth and extent of India’s foreign development aid programs among developing nations have massively expanded. Credit lines, financial support, tech support, rescue operations, human rights assistance, educational grants, and an assortment of capacity-building programs like military training courses are among them.

One of the countries greatly benefiting from such programs is the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. A little while back, the country had captured news headlines all over the world, but there’s a lot more than meets the eye than the gloom-ridden deeds that make up news in a pragmatic world like ours. The human habitation in Afghanistan dates back to the Middle Palaeolithic era, and its strategic location along the Silk Road connects it with Asian and Middle Eastern culture.
