Card Palace by Wanceslas Square

What is obvious these days is the utter decadence of the Tajik RFE/RL. Great thinkers like Taher Abdoljabbar & Emamnazar Khalnazar are out, youngsters on the path of journalism are out and now a good journalist in Dushanbe has left it voluntarily. Rahmatkarim Dawlat, my friend and double-ex-colleague (since we used to work together in Tajik TV too), has spat on the face of Prague by sending the following message:

"Salom,
Az hamkoiri va hamrohii har yaki shumo minnatpaziram. Vale man zindagii mushkil dar sharoiti Tojikistonro bar kor va fa'oliyat zeri bori farmon va fishori ravoni va ruhi tarjeh dodam. Kor dar Ozodi bo vujudi mafod baroi man, mutaasifona mushkil va dushvor niz anjom shuda. Khususan, munosibati akhiri Kh. Baqozoda baroi man dardovar bud. Man, in vaz'ro, ki yak mudir meoyad, zeri bori yak guruh va mudiri digar, ki
meoyad zeri bopri guruhi digar boyad qaror girifa bosham, digar tahammul
nadoram. Binobar in az ta'rikhi 11. 12. 2006 man az hamkori bo ozodii tojiki sarfi nazar kardam. Bo vujude guftam az kase niz ba surati judogona gila nadoram.
Bo salom, RD"

I know Djavadi is going to get him back on his return from Baku and I know RD presumably will re-join them. However, I feel really sorry for RFE/RL Tajik Svc. It seems it's falling apart with a blow of the wind of change.

Dear Darius,

Another year unfolds,
New paths we have to tread.
We wonder what life holds
In the brand new year ahead.

My special wish just for you
Is a blessing from God above,
To make this your happiest year,
Filled with joy and peace and love.

Dear Mohammed Rafeeq
I wish you pride and joy
A life with no mistakes
A future to enjoy

When you fail to embrace democracy, that's the way they treat you:

Hamkoroni aziz: 1-2 nafar ba man dar borai Rahmatkarim murojiat kardaand. Az in ru xostam ba'ze matolibro ki baroi hama ahamiyyat dorand yodovare kunam.

Avvalin ruzi dushanbei haftae ki man bo safari kore dar xorij budam
Rahmatkarim bar xilofi barnoma va tavofuki komili kabli ba kori barnomai subh naomad. Bo vujudi telefoni kabli dalel yo bahonahoe ovard ki nameoyad, korro namekunad,
va nametavonad. In ki dalel va yo bahona chi budaast mas'alai digarest va asosan muhim ham nest, chun ki fakt onast ki Rahmatkarim uhdadorii marbut ba korro ki ba u sipurda shuda bud va u ham kabul karda bud anjom nadoda, korro partofta, barnomaro bo xatari jiddi rubaru kardaast. Mo tavonistem bo vujudi in
"korshikani" barnomai subhro bo muvaffakiyyat ijro kunem. Az payi in hodisa Rahmatkarim ba hamai baxshi tojiki yak emaili ghayri-hamkorona, ghayri-konstruktivi va hatto xasmona navishtaa va guftaast ki az kor dar
baxshi tojiki istefo medihad. Man istefoi Rahmatkarimro kabul kardam va u digar hamkori mo nest. Rahmatkarim jurnalisti xube bud. Hatto zamoni xudi man ba radio jalb
karda shud. Ammo in raftori u kobili kabul va tahammul nest va naxohad bud. Agar man, Abbosi Javodi, ba har dalel va yo bahonae in yo on kori xudro dar
radio mepartoftam, imtino mekardam, noz mekardam, shartu shurut meguzoshtam,
ba hama email firistoda shikvavu tankidu etiroz mekardam, yak ruz ba'd rohbarii radio hatto muntaziri iste'foi man nameshud va maro ba iste'fo mefiristod. Kor
va uhdadorihoi mo ba kor va tarzi raftor dar joi kor chize ast ki hama, az bolo to poen HAMA boyad rioyat kunand. Kor boyad pesh ravad. Agar mushkil va yo
mas'alae hast boyad ba tavri hamkorona va dustona matrah va hall shavad. Ammo chi shikoyat doshta boshem chi ne, vakte tasmim girifta shudaast, vakte uhdadoriho ma'lum ast, kor boyad ijro shavad. Mushkilotro ham na az tariki emailu etirozu kampaniya, balki az tariki bahsu mashvarat oshkor va bu maksadi chorajui hall mekunem. Ba hamin xotir agar Rahmatkarim xud ba iste'fo nameraft, mo korro bo u kat' mekardem. Agar fardo hamin hodisa bu 1, 2, 10 nafari digar, bo xudi man va az man bolotarho ham shavad, natija hamon xohad bud. Man mutmainam ki in kabel hodisaho istisno hastand va takror ham naxohand
shud. Hamai mo uhdadore va vazifahoi xudro nek medonem va ijro mekunem. In dar guzashta ham in tavr budaast va dar oyanda ham in tavr xohad bud.

Tashakkur,
Abbos Javodi

Ostensibly, it was a very well-conducted trick by AJ. RD is back and reporting as in those old days. I wish him all the best.
