    This paper presents an account of the experience of South Asian women of Pakistani descent who have immigrated to Canada within the last year. The purpose of this study was to explore the quality of life and personal stresses and strains that follow immigration to a different culture. Seven immigrant women from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) were interviewed about their experiences of immigrating with their families. The interviews were then subjected to a qualitative analysis based on the principles of grounded theory. The findings outline the goals and expectations these immigrants hoped to achieve and highlight the losses, pains and hardships they went through in the pursuit of these goals. A four-staged model of the women"s experience of immigration to Canada is presented: (a) Seeking a better future (b) Confronting reality (c) Grieving and mourning, and (d) Adjusting.

      Development and modernization in Afghanistan, unlike that in developing civil societies, did not generate from the bottom but was imposed from above by a bureaucratic elite that tried to transform the country's precapitalist social formation overnight without creating a solid base to support it.
