The biggest problem I faced in reading these stories was understanding them!

Language was the source of couple of difficulties. One was vocabulary. The book didn't have as many glosses as I would have liked. Though I did benefit from having read Tedhi Lakeep just before this which fortunately had ample glosses and a writer's vocabulary tends to be similar. Still there were places where meaning eluded me and I was too lazy to pick up the dictionary.

The second linguistic difficulty was bit surprisi

Ismat Chughtai.. one of the contemporaries of Manto.. so that brings in a comparison.. but i would not do that.. even though her being a known and contemporary of Manto makes her very special for me..

So for Ismat her short stories, inspired by the partition saga, the hindu-muslim divide, the common women, family life and relationships of Indian Muslim women of 19th century - they all warm your heart.
She writes simple stories with simple characters from everyday life happening in our neigborhood
