Description

 

About the Book:

 

A generation after Premchand, the story writers that came to the forefront, among them Krishan Chandar, Rajinder Singh Bedi, Ismat Chugtai and Saadat Hasan Manto were most outstanding. Manto was a bold and unmitigated realist of his times. The sweep of his variegated imagination, his economy of narration and style and his masterly technique bespoke of elegance. He had a deep insight into human nature and a surprisingly keen understanding of human actions. Manto has, with dispassionate calm studied the tragedies and horrors of life, so horrendous that they could have even turned stone into water. Even so, he did not despair of the goodness of man, of his humanity and life-giving powers. He has concretized the experiences and observations of life in his beautiful, well groomed and powerful stories which leave one amazed. Urdu short story rightly feels proud of its enrichment and the pride of place in the field of fiction because of Manto's stories.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
