Ya, it’s a pretty first-rate place, with a fair amount of diversity. Utterly boring — no grand narratives — but discreet, efficient and, in its way, cozy. what say you?

I’m afraid not. In fact they blacklisted me, so no visa either. Anyway, it’s nothing compared to what others have been put through. Love to Vega!

Heartbreaking to see this. I grew up half-Sikh, half-Muslim in India and have seen both these communities come cyclically under attack in my lifetime alone. This should give anyone pause. Instead we have a majoritarian politics that treats the supermajority of 80+% as the victim.

"The mystery of why Walsh was thrown out of the Islamic Republic runs like a MacGuffin through the pages of this jagged and multifaceted portrait". Thank you for a wonderful review of THE NINE LIVES OF PAKISTAN.

.⁦⁩: “We wanted to trade some of our democratic chaos for a little bit more growth. We ended up with less of both.” A devastating piece on what it would take for India to find its way again, as the hope that brought us all back fades.
