In this “line of work” it’s the little things that start to grate on you. In articles describing our music, more often that not, South Asia is described as South East Asia. Journalists (are they still called that) please do your job. Look at a map. It’s simple grade school geography (well at least outside of the US it is.) My grammar might not be spot on but I’m not paid to write articles. For those that are not in the know, South Asia includes Afghanistan (thought it was the “Middle East” didn’t you?) Pakistan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Bangladesh & The Maldives.
btw, Sufis don’t carry knives, Sikhs do. It’s called a kirpan.
