. Newly added events include a conversation between famed Pakistani novelist, Mohsin Hamid
and Harsha Ram on Mar 10 (see box below) and special screenings of Sunil Shah's The Wisdom Tree

In case you missed our media coverage: as a response to Mohammed Hanif's visit Kalpana Sharma wrote Pakistanis, Indians and Thin Skins
