Intizar Husain (Author) Rakhshanda Jalil (Translator)
Synopsis

The stories in this collection are drawn from the rich oral narrative tradition of the Indian subcontinent, on sources as diverse as the Katha Sagar, Puranic lore, Sufi legends, Jataka tales, Kissa-kahani and dastan, as well as Intizar Husain's own training and experience as a veteran newspaper man. In story after story he seeks to retrieve the past, to see it better, to understand it, may be even learn from it. Taken together, they cover a gamut of emotions -- nostalgia for a world left behind in India, angst for the amputated 'other' abandoned in the former East Pakistan, concern over the two emerging nuclear powers, a cathartic re-purging of his own Shia Muslim legacy and much more.
