Overview

“My Long Flirtation” takes the reader on a humorous adventure in a parallel world in the society and culture of Pakistan and India, a world that is both very similar and very different from that of the West. Like "Three Cups of Tea" by Greg Mortensen, the cultural and social settings of “My Long Flirtation” are in Pakistan, but at a different time, and from the viewpoint of a Pakistani, and in the cosmopolitan city of Karachi in the early 1950's.

These memoirs provide a unique and humorous perspective on Pakistan’s society and culture through interesting situations and fascinating characters: actresses, bankers, bureaucrats, businessmen, Western diplomats, donkey cart drivers, American and British expatriates, poets, politicians, policemen, Muslim religious leaders, and others. The wide range of situations described with a touch of humor include embezzlements, cocktail parties, hunting trips, monsoon rains, job interviews, office politics, office romance, protocol duty and theatrical plays.

His uncanny subtlety of intellect enabled him to see the reality behind the façade, the actual man beneath the garb he wore. He unveils the hypocrisy in a humorous manner to avoid, as much as possible, offending the subject’s susceptibilities.

By any measure, it is a must read work.
