Description
About the Book

"You think you're doing me a favour by calling Mona a drain and the child a maggot, but I'm not such a shallow person. I've seen Mon; more intimately than you have. Yes, yes, you slept with her, but we've spent many grief-stricken and hopeless nights together, and together mourned your infidelity.

" In the two bold and gripping novellas brought together in this volume, the inimitable Ismat Chughtai writes of subversive women-subversive in unexpected ways-as they experience romantic and sexual desire, defy societal restrictions, struggle, scheme and sometimes court tragedy.

Obsession (Saudai), deals with one of Chughtai's favourite themes, the "master-servant" romance-in this case, two brothers, sons of a feudal household, in love with the same orphan girl.

And Wild Pigeons (Jungli Kabutar)-based on the experiences of a famous Bollywood personality-probes the theme of infidelity, dissecting the emotions not only of the partner who is betrayed but also the one who betrays.

In Chandni and Abida, the main protagonists of the novellas, Chughtai gives us two of the strongest women in Indian fiction-clever, self-willed, flawed and, in the end, far braver than the men in their lives.

About the Author

Ismat chughtai (1915-1991) was born in Badayun and is counted among the earliest and foremost women Urdu writers. She focused on women's issues with a directness and intensity unparalleled in Indian literature among writers of her generation. She is the author of several collections of short stories, novellas, a novel, Terhi Lakir (The Crooked Line), a collection of reminiscences and essays, My Friend, My Enemy, and a memoir, Kaghazi Hai Perahan (The Paper-thin Garment). With her husband, Shahid Latif, a film director, she produced and co-directed six Hindustani films, and produced a further six, independently, after his death.
