Teabreak’s ‘Featured Blogger’ (me!)

Teabreak brings together “all the popular blogs of Pakistan on one platform”. I am thrilled and honoured to be their Featured Blogger for March, and to have my work described thus: “The blogger that we choose to highlight this month upholds a very balanced approach on the socio-political issues of this country. Her role as a seasoned activist / journalist facilitates her blog readers to look things in a much broader perspective and that’s what makes this blog important in many ways.”

They also did an email interview which got me thinking about what I do and why I do it. Thanks Ammar and team.
