LIFE AND WORKS OF SAADAT HASAN MANTO
LIFE AND WORKS OF SAADAT HASAN MANTO
Description
From the Jacket

This volume brings together a collection of essays of literary critics, historians and sociologists presented at a seminar on the life and works of Saadaat Hasan Manto held at the Institute of advanced study in 1996. It offers the first major critical appraisal of the complex moral impulses and formal elements which characterize the works of one of the greatest writers of the Indian subcontinent. Many of the essays included here also pay thoughtful attention to Manto's attempts to make sense of the partition of India and its accompanying horror.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
