Indian Intellectuals Can’t Accept Pakistan

The blog's intentions are good, the execution clumsy.

Pakistan's eminent novelist Bina Shah reviews Pakistan Paindabad, the sister-site of The Delhi Walla.

Ms Shah writes:
Mayank Austen Soofi seems to have no editorial agenda, commissioning articles informally and writing features of varying length, style, and quality. The result is hit or miss: hit when Soofi plays the role of the wide-eyed wanderer, moving through Lahore markets or Karachi streets with hunger to find out about life on the “other side”. He misses when trying his hand at more sophisticated writing: some of his satires fall flat, others are cringe-worthy, and then there are some that induce in the reader a feeling of confusion or misunderstanding.
