for a change, i listened…

so far i have never read any great works in Urdu. I once read a novel written by ibn-e-insha when i was fourteen or may be fifteen, i don’t remember. i could not understand it very clearly. after that my interest shifted swiftly to English  and i completely abandoned reading Urdu except in school, of course. then one day, years later, i heard this story by Saadat Hassan Manto.

Toba Tek Singh 1

It is a good story. Although it did not have the charm of reading but enjoyable.

The story reminded me of One Flew Over Cuckoo’s Nest.
