Which also reminded me that sometimes in July, 2006, I had decided to annotate and translate Common Sense into Urdu. I admit that the only progress I made on this so far is to get the title translated – trust me, it was far harder than you’d imagine. I also read through Paine’s Rights of Man and The Age of Reason.
I honestly don’t know if I can do this judiciously – or at all. But, with 2008 being the year when Pakistan’s resident dictator decides, again, to suspend democracy and freedom – with the help of the White House – I think it will be my fruitless gesture.
