"Indian authors writing in English were the rising stars of the anglophone literary world in the 1990s, notes Muneeza Shamsie in the preface to her groundbreaking and exhaustive book, Hybrid Tapestries: The Development of Pakistani Literature in English. At the time, she writes, many in Pakistan would ask her why there weren’t any English language writers in Pakistan. But, contrary to general perception, Muneeza recalls, she was “meeting and writing about Pakistani-English authors all the time”. This disconnect between perception and reality served as a catalyst of sorts for A Dragonfly in the Sun, the 1997 anthology she went on to compile. The anthology included the works of several writers of Pakistani origin living abroad, raising important questions of “identity and belonging”. In Hybrid Tapestries, Muneeza addresses those questions and defines what it means to be a “Pakistani” writer: “anyone who claims that identity,” she argues." ow.ly/bsrR30cULzI... See MoreSee Less
"Sitting on a carved chair at a hotel in Skardu, Mohammad Amin was talking to tourists who had arrived there late in the afternoon and were enjoying their cups of coffee. Amin, a local retired schoolteacher, is famous among visitors to Skardu for his intimate and deep knowledge of Gilgit-Baltistan. It was through Amin that I had learnt about Little Karim, the famous porter of the Baltistan valley who has scaled all the 8,000-metre peaks in Pakistan without an oxygen mask. Sadly, Little Karim received little attention for this feat as many Western mountaineers tend to get for their accomplishments. I had been travelling to Gilgit-Baltistan since 2007 but it was through 76-year-old Amin that I found out about some ‘hidden’ historical sites in Chunda Valley. For example, a tale that according to him, is known to every villager in the valley and was narrated to him by his grandfather. A few Swiss and Italian climbers also joined us to hear Amin’s story." ow.ly/tRIs30cUJmp... See MoreSee Less

“In families like ours it is very difficult for us to go out and learn something productive which enable us to earn a decent living,” says Iqra, a resident of Korangi slum area, Karachi. “However, when I got an opportunity to join Aman Tech stitching programme, I easily got the permission by my parents owing to the Institute’s clean reputation. I am learning basic stitching here and after the completion of the course, I intend to find a job in a garment factory,” adds Iqra.
