Hamid’s country's history and progress on the occasions of Pakistan's 60th and 65th birthdays. Read by Sanjeev Baskhar.
These timely 'dispatches from Lahore, New York and London' encompassing memoir, art and politics, collect the best essays of the award-winning author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Mohsin Hamid.
Hamid makes a compelling case for recognising our common humanity while relishing our diversity, for resisting the artificial mono-identities of religion or nationality or race, and for always judging a country or nation by how it treats its minorities as 'Each individual human being is, after all, a minority of one'.
In two essays, author and journalist Mohsin Hamid considers his country's – and its Asian neighbours' – history and progress, on the occasions of Pakistan's 60th and 65th birthdays.
