The 4 novellas during this quantity span the inimitable Ismat Chughtai’s literary occupation, from 1939 to 1971. each develops the author’s imperative preoccupation with the lives of girls as they event love, tragedy, societal prescriptions and proscriptions, in collision with their very own rebellious spirit. A willing feel in their person subversive power and a willingness to take the results of obduracy within the face of overwhelming odds, guarantees that they're neither hapless nor sufferers. via them Chughtai can provide a scathing critique at the hypocrisy and cant of social mores, and the festering maladies that infect society.

Chughtai’s attribute mastery of shape and process, her vibrant imagery and richness of language make for marvellous story-telling, and create essentially the most memorable woman protagonists in Indian literature.
