Summary
What does it mean to be a Pakistani? What do people see when they think they see a Pakistani? Can a Pakistani be more than one things? In 'A Person of Pakistani Origin,' Ziauddin Sardar, who does not have an authentic birth certificate to prove his origins, seeks to discover what makes a Pakistani and whether it is something one wants or ought to be. He reflects on his culture and heritage through the stories of the Pakistanis in his life. These are tales of duelling poets, fake thrillers, an uncle who has the ability to disappear and reappear miles away without even breaking a sweat, a traditional bookish auntie who harbours feminist desires, and a culture deeply entangled in Bollywood films. Nothing is as it seems, and assumptions made serve only as lessons for tomorrow
