Compliments of the Season

From the Tatiana Divens archive, given to her, circa 1994, by Lee Cold***, at that time desk officer for Pakistan, Afganistan, and Bangladesh (one level below ambassador,), Department of State, located for the most part in Washington DC. It was found by Cold*** in Peshawar, where it was printed by UNICEF, where he spent some time coordinating efforts after a 7-10 days trip to Kabul and Herat. A worthy aspiration for this festive season: the Farsi text reads: “Education is compulsory for all Muslim men and women (says the Prophet Mohammad)”, and the text on the blackboard reads: “Before eating wash your hands with water and soap”. A salutary message for the excesses of the festive season?

    This was NOT given to Tatiana Divens by George O’Bannon. It was given to her, circa 1994, by Lee Cold***, at that time desk officer for Pakistan, Afganistan, and Bangladesh (one level below ambassador,), Department of State, located for the most part in Washington DC. It was found by COLD*** in Peshawar, where it was printed by UNICEF, where he spent some time coordinating efforts after a 7-10 days trip to Kabul and Herat. The teaching cloths are almost a complete set-a periodic table od the elements was donated to the MIT department of physics, Cambridge, MA, USA
