Behind the scenes Edit

In 1930, when A Wing and a Prayer and Storm Warning are set, the real life country of Pakistan had not yet been created. At that point in the real world, all of modern-day India, Bangladesh and Pakistan were a part of British India, or India for short.

2018's Demons of the Punjab clarifies about the Partition which led to the creation of Pakistan.

In The Waters of Mars, a fictional on-screen news article about Tarak Ital describes Tarak as having grown up in "Karachi, Pakistan" after he was born in 2026.
