Meet my Valentine...

Anasuya Devi is all set for Valentine's Day, appropriately dressed in red, and clutching her favourite doll.
As for me, I am stuck in Mumbai. My Pakistani visa was issued much too late for me to make the PIA flight! This is such a shame... I was all set to participate in the Karachi Lit Fest. I had two major sessions lined up, plus, a press conference. I am not sure why Gulzar Saab hastily returned after a few hours spent in Lahore. But my decision was taken independently. I had no choice! Inshallah, I'll be invited next year. And hopefully by then the relations between the two countries will have improved sufficiently not to have problems of the visa kind! I was going there as a writer, not a politician! Khair... at the moment, things are super sensitive and touchy. No point escalating matters. I want to post the sweet and touching responses from Karachi. These were sent by the organisers when they realised I couldn't make it.
 On Valentine's Day, my heart is a little broken...
