LIFE AND WORKS OF SAADAT HASAN MANTO
LIFE AND WORKS OF SAADAT HASAN MANTO
Description
From the Jacket

This volume brings together a collection of essays of literary critics, historians and sociologists presented at a seminar on the life and works of Saadaat Hasan Manto held at the Institute of advanced study in 1996. It offers the first major critical appraisal of the complex moral impulses and formal elements which characterize the works of one of the greatest writers of the Indian subcontinent. Many of the essays included here also pay thoughtful attention to Manto's attempts to make sense of the partition of India and its accompanying horror.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA
I've been happy with prior purchases from this site!
Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
