Hectic but Exciting Times

In last few weeks I happened to travel to different cities of Paksitan and presented in the confernces there.  This included my plenary sessions in SPELT conferences in Abbottabad,  Karachi, Islamabad, and Rawalindi.  My book "Language, Gender, and Power: The Politics of Representation and Hegemony in South Asia" was also launched in SPELT conferences in Karachi, Islamabad, and Lahore.  

We also had a great Children Festival in Lahore where I took a session with little kids about writing poetry.  Also there was a book launch session of my book.
