Parachas essays are constructed around closely felt personal encounters; and in being so, they nudge the reader (wherever she may be) to look around with keener eye and ear to find the imprints of history and diverse influences in everyday conversations, in the music and food around, in the life stories of stray acquaintances. It is, in sum, a riveting introduction to Pakistan. - Mini Kapoor, The Hindu

Layered and powerful, Parachas writing takes you beyond ... the usual cliches, to present, a nuanced picture of a complex nation caught.... between the modernist impulse and the theocratic one - Manjula Narayan, Hindustan Times.
