Dear What‟s On In Dushanbe community,

Some of you may have already heard, but I currently have a web comic, ―Night at the Western‖
competing at a DC Comics site, Zuda Comics. The competition ends on March 31st, and we are
currently in second place out of 10 contestants. The first place comic will get a contract to continue on
the site for a year. The comic is written by me and illustrated by a Spanish (Catalan) artist. Come and
take a look at the work of an expat living here in Dushanbe. If you like what you see, please take the
time to log in at the site and vote for us (it takes just a few minutes), so that we can win this
competition and continue to tell our story!
Here‘s the link to our comic:
And here‘s a link to how you can best support us:

Thanks to all of you for supporting the creative arts, and a happy Navruz!

                           Navruz Calendar „Tajikistan 2010-2011‟
As continuation of its long standing tradition the Swiss Cooperation Office in Tajikistan has recently
issued a new calendar ―Tajikistan 2010-2011‖, which has become one of its ‗trade mark‘.
Traditionally each year the calendar presents a different topic through the variety of photographs. For
2010 the focus has been given to gender equality, which in Tajikistan has always been an issue.
The calendars are available at the Swiss Cooperation Office in Tajikistan for free.

             Exhibition „Modalities‟ in TSUM, 30 March 2010, at 15:00 hrs
Through its Art and Culture program Switzerland is supporting an exhibition ‗Modalities‘ where a
number of Tajik artists will demonstrate their perception of gender equality through contemporary art
techniques. The project is expected to enable developing synergies between art and social issues and
promote the newly emerging Tajik contemporary art.
The project exhibition ‗Modalities‘ is joined by UNIFEM in order to highlight importance of
mobilization of all development actors around UNiTE-SAY NO campaigns, which will show case
actions to end violence against women.

The exhibition „Modalities‟ will open in March 30, 2010 at 15:00 hrs on the 2 nd floor of the
Central Department Store (TSUM), and will last for the next two weeks. Admission is free.

Our specialty:
E-tickets are our specialty. We feature electronic ticketing for the international community in Tajikistan
An e-ticket (electronic ticket) is a paperless electronic document used for ticketing passengers, particularly in
the commercial airline industry. Virtually all major airlines use this method of ticketing.
The principal advantage of e-ticketing is that it reduces booking expense by eliminating the need for printing
and mailing paper documents. Another advantage is that it eliminates the possibility of critical documents
getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong address.
A passenger traveling on an electronic ticket is given a copy of the itinerary. This document is not a ticket, but
it indicates that you do have an electronic ticket.
For many people, the fact that you cannot lose the ticket is the saving grace of an electronic ticket. Many people
who have accidentally left their paper ticket at home or the office have been able to retrieve the information at
the airport.
Electronic tickets eliminate this possible stress, particularly for frequent travelers; not having to worry about a
forgotten ticket is a big advantage.
