"Some configurations of my experiences as a member of the International Writers Programme 1988 are recorded in this book. This is not a travelogue or a memoir, neither a collection of stories and legends nor a series of character studies or critical evaluations of selected literary works or issues. A little bit of everything has gone into it. If it does not fit a genre, I am sorry for those who try to fix responses into preconceived moulds and forms. Imagine yourself by a log-fire on a cold winter morning, with an old friend you have met after some years, and you may find the conversation to your liking. Or, if it is a burning summer afternoon, the shade of a mango tree would be better, and we could talk late into the evening and watch the crows go back to their homes and the doves gather in the fields. We could spend several evenings and afternoons together." From the "Foreword" by Waqas Khwaja
