  There are three people to whom I am particularly indebted for teaching me how to imagine Lahore in the way it is captured in the book. First on the list is Furrukh Khan, whose course ‘Imagining Lahore’ was one of its kind and inspired me to explore the history of the city. My writing career began with documenting stories about Lahore.

  It is through the course that I discovered the writings of Majid Sheikh, a chronicler of Lahore whose weekly columns about its history in Dawn transformed the way I viewed the city. A collection of his articles in the book Tales without an End is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of the city.

  Last but not the least is Iqbal Qaiser, my eternal guru, a living encyclopedia, whose mentorship is the single most important factor in my writing. I happened to discover him through Furrukh Khan’s course and have clung on to him since then, desperate for the knowledge he so generously shares.

  I would also like to thank the following:

  Anam Zakaria, for being my anchor and an incredible companion.

  Khalid Manzoor, for teaching me idealism and romance.

  Nyla Khalid, for teaching me the power of passion.

  Sana Shoaib, for teaching me the
power of love.

  Nida Umer, for her unconditional love for me.

  Neelofur Zakaria, for embracing my eccentricities.

  Eraj Zakaria, for his realism.

  This book has also been made possible by the efforts of Kanishka Gupta, my agent and friend, the most dynamic literary agent in the business, and Swati Chopra, my editor. The editor is the unsung hero of a book and without her efforts Imagining Lahore would not have taken the shape it has.
