    The modern Urdu short story, which took root in India and Pakistan not very long ago, has today become a vibrant art form with writers from both countries contributing to its growth and status. It can boast a wealth of literature as yet little known outside the Urdu world. This anthology presents to the discriminating English reader a selection of stories comparable in excellence to short fiction written in any other language.

    Starting with the years immediately preceding the independence of India and the creation of Pakistan, it spans nearly half a century of intense literary activity, varied in approach and wide in scope. The anthology features both literary stalwarts like Premchand and Mumtaz Mufti, as well as younger writers who have shown unmistakable promise.
