|Ayla is a 16-year-old girl brought up in a pre-eminent elite family in modern-day Karachi. Through her eyes we witness the unpleasant hidden realities of the lives of those belonging to the upper class. We see Shahaan a boy with a certain Godliness and a penchant for drugs; Ayla s friend Alia oppressed by her wealthy but overly conservative parents; and Tanzeela a teenager seemingly trapped in an abusive marriage. |
These are the stories that are swept under the flourish of silk saris at get-togethers stories that are tucked neatly into Kenneth Cole Wallets at extravagant dinner parties. These stories are only spoken about in hushed whispers…or never at all.
Minal Khan was born in Karachi Pakistan and is currently pursuing a degree in Economics at Cornell University New York where she also serves as the International News Editor for the Cornell Progressive and is also a member of the Debate Society.
She has also received the Presidential Award for English Literature in Pakistan in 2005.
