This post will be very brief: after finally sorting out our Pakistan visas, we are in Lahore today, and among other things busy celebrating the Urs (annual pilgrimage) of Miran Badshah at Wazir Khan Masjid (see the picture). Whatever time and energy the Pir does not consume is eaten up by conversations with our lovely hosts or simply by the torching heat of pre-monsoon Punjab. I will be back with more extensive stories (and lecture notes - after all, this is a work trip) from next week onwards when we return to Lucknow and hope you excuse me til then - there is so much to see and hear and feel here, that I want to enjoy it without thinking of the blog for a while...
