When a woman with brains and beauty from a wealthy background decides to take her fate into her own hands and challenge the restrictions of a male-oriented, conservative society, the consequences can be devastating. Born into one of Pakistan's most influential families, Tehmina Durrani was raised in the privileged milieu of Lahore high society, and educated at the same school as Benazir Bhutto. Like all women of her rank, she was expected to marry a prosperous Muslim from a respectable family, bear him many children, and lead a sheltered life of air-conditioned leisure.

Book review: Tehmina Durrani's 'My Feudal Lord'

In a tome often weighed down by utter 0-levels kind of trite - "the tumour was benign, Mustafa was malignant" - Tehmina makes some startling revelations about Khar's links with India's RAW in a plot to overthrow Zia and the Pakistanis seem to be taking it seriously. The book has sold several prints, mostly in the blackmarket.

Tehmina's tales also rip the stereotyped conservative Islamic facade of Pakistani high society and reveal the sleazy underbelly of its subterranean jet-set.

She became his apprentice, and also got his permission to author his autobiography. These years shadowing Edhi sahab were a thesis for the dissertation of the book.

These years were perhaps her most transformational as they laid the seeds for her further work as well as her spiritual quest for truth. They were married in a private ceremony in Dubai , United Arab Emirates. Durrani resides in Lahore with her husband, who is a part of the politically prominent Sharif family , and the brother of Nawaz Sharif , the Ex- Prime Minister of Pakistan.
