I am glad aatish taseer is taking it to these blowhards. he never wrote any nonsense syrupy pieces about pakistan. being half-pakistani himself - he knows better than our 'intellectual' class what it means to actually live there.
i have always liked taseer -his first book of travels was much better than his first novel (I found it too bollywood filmy - a criticism he himself makes in the book !!)
I find slickwilly a real fart myself. he is the danielle steele of the mughals. an absolute aaa-grade prized english ass
