The Pity of Partition
- Manto's Life, Times, and Work across the India-Pakistan Divide
- By: Ayesha Jalal
- Narrated by: Sanjiv Jhaveri
- Length: 7 hrs and 34 mins
Saadat Hasan Manto (1912-1955) was an established Urdu short story writer and a rising screenwriter in Bombay at the time of India's partition in 1947, and he is perhaps best known for the short stories he wrote following his migration to Lahore in newly formed Pakistan. Ayesha Jalal draws on Manto's stories, sketches, and essays, as well as a trove of his private letters, to present an intimate history of partition and its devastating toll.
Wonderful character, not such an interesting book
