Raza, your blog is becoming this enormous repository of amazing stuff — photographs, poetry, historical narratives, thoughtful opinion — about some of the things that matter most to me — India-Pakistan relations, Hindu-Muslim relations, Sufism, globalization’s impact on our heritage, for example. Even more important, I just don’t think there is a collection like this anywhere else on the Internet, and certainly not in any book or magazine.

I hope all of your materials are safely backed up somewhere. It would be a pity for there to be any kind of crash and for all this to be lost.
