    Without giving an impression of bragging I would say that I have read quiet a lot of fiction authors. but till date I have not found someone like Manto. in fact I have no words to describe my adoration for him..I think his death happened at an age when most of the authors only start gaining fame, and we lost the master of short stories There can be a debate as to whether Manto was an Indian or Pakistani writer but it doesn t matter because they say artists have no nationalities. I read him once and

    Manto was a controversial writer of his times and while reading his stories you come to understand why that might have been the case These stories, which I imagine to have been inspired from real life instances, present to us the ethos of a world long gone, of a country which witnessed turmoil of Partition and of the people who lived through those times Manto writes plainly, even blatantly and with sarcasm at times Perhaps that is why the stories leave such an impact on the reader A few of his stories lef

    The mastery of Hasan s writing is most evident in his ability to convey all the intricacies of human desire without actually saying anything overtly He is deceptively simple and makes the reader work for the illumination In a word brilliant.You ll want to purchase your own copy of this collection because the short stories deserve multiple readings followed by lively discussions with friends who will most assuredly become a captive audience after you relay one of Manto s plots or gossip about one of his characters Too,

    it is possible to get shocked even in 2018 when reading saadat hasan manto because he seems to take a perverse joy in writing about how ordinary the fucked up is, but his words could not have been written without deep compassion and love, the kind that comes from clear sight

    After reading the introduction by translator Khalid Hasan and then reading Manto s account of his friendship with Ashok Kumar, the Bollywood superstar of the Forties and Fifties, I fell in love with the book I had borrowed it from the Just Books library, so I would have to return it at some point The thought of having to give it back saddened me, though, so I decided to order my own copy on Flipkart This way, I can take my time over reading the very best of Saadat Hasan Manto.

    When I heard that Manto was a writer that was continually boycotted and banned in India, I figured it was because of the typical puritanical culture reaction to media reasons but after reading these stories, some of them are DARK Still, Manto writes in such a beautiful manner and develops exquisite scenes, it s no wonder he is considered the best Urdu writer Wholeheartedly recommend this book of short stories.

    Fantastic English translations of Manto s Urdu short stories, plays, letters, and essays I will have to read the original Urdu versions, but if the English renditions are any indication, the stories bring out Manto s mastery of varied story telling techniques that touch upon a range of taboo subjects in the Subcontinent that still resonate strongly today What I love about Manto is his uncanny ability to inject a wry and irreverent sense of humor dark comedy to otherwise grim and depressing subject matter prostitution, rape, murder,fanaticism, lus

    Manto s favorite friend Shyam a contemporary actor recalls the days when Manto was disillusioned after his migration to Lahore Manto told Shyam in clear cut fashion Saadat Hassan will perish, but Manto will live on forever.It is this unwavering honesty that kept Manto alive His body of work will keep him breathing and flourishing in the times to come After Partition, Manto always faced a conflict Is he Pakistan s greatest short story writer or Hindustan s, which because of the British had ceased to exist He couldn t find an answer.Salman Rushdie provide

    To do justice to this review would be a difficult task because of sheer quality of stories that I ended up reading The emotions, narratives and manner of storytelling in each of the masterful stories is so compelling that you would not just enjoy them but also it would linger on deep in your minds even after they have ended.These are stories that talk to you and pull you out of slumber if you are in one I feel the pain, the sordid eventualities that partition dished out, the downright sinister mentalities and the agonising portrayal of the tumultuous times gon
