The green-eyed ‘Afghan Girl’ Sharbat Gula granted refugee status in Italy

After US photographer Steve McCurry caught her face in a Pakistan refugee camp in the 1980s, Sharbat Gula became Afghanistan’s most famous refugee.

Sharbat Gula, the green-eyed ‘Afghan Girl,’ whose 1985 National Geographic shot became a symbol of Afghanistan’s worn-torn country, has been granted asylum in Italy. Following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan in August, Gula has requested assistance in leaving the country.

After US photographer Steve McCurry caught her face at a refugee camp on the Pakistan-Afghan border in the 1980s, Sharbat Gula became Afghanistan’s most famous refugee. This photograph, which has now become an icon, was featured on the front cover of National Geographic.

Sharbat Gula, who is She?

She arrived in Pakistan as an orphan four or five years after the Soviet invasion in 1979, Sharbat Gula added.

Gula was photographed by US photographer Steve McCurry when she was a child living in a Pakistani refugee camp.

Her stunning emerald eyes, which peered out from under a headscarf with a mixture of wrath and agony, made her famous around the world.

Gula, now a widowed mother of four, was photographed by McCurry when she was 12 years old and living in a refugee camp.

Sharbat Gula’s identity wasn’t known until McCurry came to the area in 2002 and hunted her out.

National Geographic reported at the time that her identification had been authenticated by an FBI analyst, forensic sculptor, and the originator of iris recognition.

In 2016, she was deported back to Afghanistan after being caught in Pakistan on false identification papers.

Sharbat Gula, now in her 40s, was also fined 110,000 Pakistani rupees and sentenced to 15 days in prison.

Ashraf Ghani greeted her with open arms and promised to provide her with an apartment so that she may live in dignity and security in her motherland.

“As a child, she captured the hearts of millions because she was the symbol of displacement,” Ghani said of Gula at the time. 

After the Taliban seized power in August, Rome announced in early September that it had evacuated about 5,000 Afghans from the country.

AURORA – This Could Be a Dream lyrics

“AURORA – This Could Be a Dream lyrics”

[Verse 1]
Look up at the light
This could be a dream or it could be real
Dive in to my mind
And don’t come up for air, you won’t need it here
Can I move you? Can I serve your fear?
Could you trust love, if I prove it’s there?
Oh, I need to know it too
And now I don’t feel you

[Chorus]
So I lift myself and I close my eyes
And I sing sometimes to know I’m alive
I know I should figure this out on my own
But if you come back could you take me home?
I get back up when the wind is strong
But I wish I knew how it felt to run
I know I’m not alone
And if you come back could you take me home?

[Verse 2]
Being so alive can hurt so very much
When you’re losing touch
But if I touch you, would you feel it there?
Could I trust love, even if I’m scared?
Oh, I wish I could give, like I’m longing to give
Oh, I wish I could live, like I’m longing to live

[Chorus]
And I lift myself and I close my eyes
And I sing sometimes to know I’m alive
I know I should figure this out on my own
But if you come back could you take me home?
I get back up when the wind is strong
But I wish I knew how it felt to run
I know I’m not alone
And if you come back could you take me home?

[Bridge]
This could be a dream
This could be a dream

[Chorus]
And I lift myself and I close my eyes
And I sing sometimes to know I’m alive
I know I should figure this out on my own
But if you come back will you take me home?
I get back up when the wind is strong
But I wish I knew how it felt to run
I know I’m not alone
And if you would come could you take me home?

“AURORA – Exhale Inhale lyrics”

[Verse 1]
I was a moving thing
Before I was a human being
I was the ice before it melts
I was the tree before it fell
My dear, come near
Do you understand what is happening?

[Verse 2]
Crawl beneath the earth
To feel the hunger and the thirst
If you could fly and be the bird
Then you would see the forest burn
My dear, come near
Do you understand what is happening?

[Chorus]
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s calling me for the emergency?
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s listening to the sirens singing?

[Verse 3]
We are stood and somehow calm
Within the madness of the storm
With no solution for the scared
Tasting pollution in the air
My dear, come near
Do you feel my hand, it is there

[Bridge]
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale
(Exhale) Inhale

[Chorus]
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s calling me for the emergency?
(Mm-mmm-mmm-mmm)
Who’s listening to the sirens singing?

[Outro]
Take from our world no more
Take from our world no more
Take from our world no more
Take from our world no more

AURORA – Blood in the Wine lyrics

“AURORA – Blood in the Wine lyrics”

[Verse 1]
I was given a heart
Before I was given a mind
A thirst for pleasure and war
A hunger we keep inside
We fell from sky with grace
And life gave us a sweeter taste
You can drink, you can feast
There’s beauty in your beast

[Pre-Chorus]
The flesh in the fruit, and the blood in the wine

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive, lover
Come and feel the love, like a sinner
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say
I won’t feel ashamed, mothеr
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it loudеr, not a sinner, she’s a lover

[Verse 2]
I was given a name
Before I was given blood
Like you were given your faith
Before there was made a God
Young rivers in your hands
And grass burning in promised lands
You can drink, you can feast
There’s beauty in your beast

[Pre-Chorus]
The flesh in the fruit, and the blood in the wine

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive, lover
Come and feel the love, like a sinner
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say
I won’t feel ashamed, mother
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it louder, not a sinner, she’s a lover

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive
Come and feel alive
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say (Louder)
Come and feel ashamed, mother
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it louder, not a sinner, she’s a lover

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus]
Come and feel alive, lover
Come and feel the love, like a sinner
Shout it louder
Shout it for the ones who could never say
Come and feel ashamed, mother
Can you break the chains off her?
Shout it louder, not a sinner, she’s a lover
