This paper focuses on new perspective of post colonial approach and will try to interpret the dark riddling encounter which is the first hand experience of Dervla Murphy who struggles a lot in male dominating society in Afghanistan. Dervla Murphy’s charm and sensitivity as a writer and as a traveler reveals not only the vitality of an age civilization nor about the colonialism but the problems and challenges of women faced by women in Afghanistan. Her stay in Afghanistan astonishes her that the liberated women have not found their identity even after a long time after independence. This travel writing recalls the historical behavior and the identity which is lost by women in Afghanistan and Dervla Murphy tries to fight for their lost identity of Afghan women is transmitted in this book. This journey glosses over the European journey and focuses on her time in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a sense of self discovery and social realization that in Afghan she was stopped not to continue her bicycle riding as it was very strange for the Afghan that a women travelling alone is completely outside the experience and beyond the imagination of everyone that it is universally assumed by men in Afghanistan.
