Dear Raza

It is delightful to experience the old city through your evocative writings as well as Fawad’s, alongwith Mahboob Ali’s wonderful woodcuts. Since I have been fortunate enough to be a humble onlooker to these curious, ecstatic and mellow-winter sun wanderings through the purana sheher by the two of you and a keen participant in our joyous readings of Mustafa Zaidi and Majeed Amjad in front of a gas fire, I must say it has been quite a memorable winter.
