Eye on Pakistan

Representing Pakistan at the Jaipur literary festival

Posted in Culture by onpakistan on June 6, 2009

Wendy Kristianasen, writing for the Le Monde Diplomatique on the recent 6th annual Jaipur literary festival has noted the presence of two Pakistani authors: Daniyal Mueenuddin (Pakistan is “a war zone”) and Nadeem Aslam (“I have acquired a huge library”). How nice.

Whilst we’re on the subject of Indian literary festivals, did you know that “India reads, but it reads overwhelmingly in Indian languages”? Perhaps you did, but the article is nevertheless well worth a read.
