Flight of the Wingless Mynahs
1980s Pakistan: Suttee is a young girl born into an affluent family of religious gurus; she has it all. But one shocking incident uncovers the uglier faces of the people around her and leaves her feeling disgusted and... alone. "I walked back very slowly, not afraid of being scolded anymore. Perhaps I was ashamed of being afraid. What was a little chastising session compared to the demonstration of brutality I had just witnessed?" Later in life, her newly found self reliance leads her to delve into facts that have been masked to save the dignity of her ancestors. Suttee also learns about the birth and breeding realities of the Taliban and where and how that special brand of casual callousness, which enables them to blow themselves up, takes root. Flight of the Wingless Mynahs reflects on the unfair advantages affluent and resourceful individuals have over the weaker sections and religious minorities of society. Author Bio: Mano Javed is an educationist who resides in Lahore, Pakistan where she strives to become an envoy for those whose voices are muted by the awe of the powerful.
