A night in london

25 Oct 2011

Currently reading ‘A night in London’ by Sajjad Zaheer. With due regard to the translator Hashmi, i feel a translator could never do justice to the writer.

Finished reading it. Not a great read. May be i would enjoy the original version (in Urdu). However, it was one of its kind in terms of timing (India under British), language chosen (Urdu unlike writers like Mulk Raj Anand) etc.

The book has an abrupt ending (so does this blog).
