Loot, pray and love

  Dr. Irfan Zafar Elizabeth M. Gilbert is an American author, essayist, short story writer, biographer, novelist, and memoirist best known for 2006 memoir “Eat, Pray, Love”. It is a sprawling yet methodical travelogue of soul-searching and self-discovery, as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote, and impression. Ironically, but understandably, she did not travel to Pakistan and instead preferred Italy, India, and the Indonesian Island of Bali and came up with this brilliant piece of writing. However, had she been crazy enough to travel to our ‘land of the pure’ and able to return in one piece back home, she certainly would have come up with a much more powerful book titled “Loot, Pray, Love”.
