This morning I travelled to Rawalpindi, the partner city to Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, just to the North. Near the city center we noted Liaquat National Bagh, the park where Benazir Bhutto the then leading candidate for Prime Minister was gunned down in Dec. 2007. At the moment that I passed the Park with its history of blood, a massive explosion was occurring in Lahore several hours further south. Lahore is the city of Punjabi arts, sometimes called the Garden of the Moghuls, the one time rulers of India.
