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.
