Joys And Jitters Of Many Journeys

 1,495

“Razi Azmi chronicles his world-wide adventures in the great and enduring tradition of travel writers from Marco Polo and Ibn Battuta to Richard Haliburton and Paul Theroux. A keen observer and meticulous penman, he records in fascinating detail his journeys from tiny specks of nations like Lesotho to the vast steppes of Russia and the wide Canadian prairies. Throughout, his descriptions are colourful and witty and evoke the very character of the lands and peoples he visits.”

B. R. Burg, Former Professor, Arizona State University

 

“Of many reasons to read this book, three stand out in particular: Razi Azmi has been to hundreds of places most people will never get to; he’s talked to more people in more languages than most people ever will; and he has a sense of humour more profound than most travel writers.”Carl Pletsch, Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado

 

“Azmi’s most absorbing account was of his trips undertaken in search of distant memories from his childhood. Having traveled with both Pakistani and Australian passports and knowing the difference in privileges each of them accords, Azmi’s perspectives are of particular interest to a South Asian audience. Everywhere he goes, he presents a comparison of values and lifestyles with the culture back home, and the lessons one could take away. There’s also a poignant feel to the stories of places, written a while ago, that would no longer present the same sight to a visitor today, because of the defacement of their cultural landscapes by repressive regimes or unchecked development in the name of modernity.”Shueyb Gandapur, Pakistani Travel Writer and Photographer who’s a chartered accountant by profession

 

“Razi Azmi, like me, was born with itchy feet, which took us far and away to different parts of the world. His accounts of India in particular—the places, the train odysseys, the bustling mood—are fascinating to read. I salute him for his travels and insightful narration of his experiences covering much of the world.”Sandip Hor, Indian Travel Writer and Photographer

 

“Packed with fascinating details and insights, A World Unveiled brings to life the infinity of meandering plains, the aromas escaping deep from within narrow bazaars. It is a gift for these times, when so much has changed for the intrepid and curious traveler alike.”Amna Zuberi, Pakistani Travel and Documentary Photographer
