    Beyond the Border, based on two journeys that Yoginder Sikand undertook to Pakistan, covering Lahore, Multan, Hyderabad (Sindh), Moenjo Daro, Bhit Shah, and Islamabad, among others, is a strikingly unconventional account of what life is like for "ordinary" Pakistanis. The Pakistan he discovers only remotely resembles the stereotypical Muslim nation of the Hindu imagination. Departing from the fiercely polemical rhetoric common in Indian and Pakistani accounts of each other, Yoginder Sikand dispels the myths that have filtered into the Indian psyche about Pakistan being the terrible other.
