I loved go­ing through Rewrit­ing the Past. I’m a big his­tory buff and I love the way you have blended his­tory with this man’s ef­forts in to­day’s times. Mir Ja­far made a great point about how na­tion­al­ism is a rel­a­tively mod­ern phe­nom­e­non and it makes no sense to judge his­tor­i­cal fig­ures by its stan­dards. That’s some­thing we still haven’t learned in our coun­try. I’d love to read more such sto­ries. Also, brownie points for your travel piece, The Pil­grim’s Progress. As I write this, I al­most feel like pack­ing my bags and em­bark­ing on the life-chang­ing Camino trail across Spain.
