Coverage by: MediaGuru (www.mynews.in) Indireads, an e-publisher serving the South Asian market, released Love Across Borders, an anthology of short stories, by Indian and Pakistani writers, on the eve of our Independence Day. The anthology aims to create positive narratives of love, relationships and connections between ordinary Pakistanis and Indians, to counter the overwhelming body of stories about partition and the subsequent loss and displacement.
Before the release of the book, a book-reading event was arranged by Indireads between the writers of both the neighbouring countries, who have contributed in the anthology.
Two New Delhi-based authors, Andy Paula and Parul Tyagi and two Karachi-based authors, Mamun Adil and Zaffar Junejo read excerpts from their stories during the event. Andy's story, Anjum, talks of two neighbours, Vandana and Anjum who bond at a human level without bothering about political differences between the two nations while Parul talks about the similarities between two brides- to-be , one Indian and one Pakistani, in Dressed to Kill. Mamun's That 70's Babe & Zaffar's The Long Interval both deal with the warmth of love over the seemingly insurmountable chasm of geography.
