SINGAPORE: Maheen Usmani’s ‘Letter from Paris’ (Tribune Magazine, May 9) was beautifully written.
It is such a true depiction of the city and made me want to fly back to Europe to enjoy the city of lovers, sitting by the Seine on a cool summer’s day, admiring the beautiful architecture around.
Also there is no doubt the French certainly know how to cook — and their chocolate crepes are to die for. In her article she mentioned how a French lady was surprised to hear that the writer was from Pakistan. How sad that a country we call home produces writers like Usmani yet is known all over the world for only negative things.
