Two hundred and fifty years ago, the Great King Ahmad Shah Durrani ruled Afghanistan, and from there, a magnificent empire extending from eastern Iran to northern India, and from the Amu Darya to the Indian Ocean. Known to his people as Ahmad Shah Baba (Ahmad Shah, our father), the king was loved by his people as an outstanding general and a just and wise ruler. But the King was troubled.
