You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

There is Asma the lackluster seamstress, Faisal the would-be terrorist, Javed Gul the Pushto rock singer, Farzana the cantankerous grandmother, Nida the ten-year-old girl with a cricket obsession, and many more. Together they form a rich mosaic that showcases the beauty of Pakistan, her culture and her people.

This looks like a book that I would enjoy reading. I enjoy reading about different people and their countries.

The fact this is comprised of short stories, including those about women, I can use them in my multi-cultural lessons as I try to get away from dry facts and find works that teach empathy along with cultural differences.

This looks like it would be a great book club read with lots to discuss.

I've always liked learning about other cultures. One of my favorite classes in college was World cultures. That love never died.
