Item Description: OUP Pakistan, Pakistan, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. 226 x 144 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The studies presented here are not prefaces in the sense that they introduce the reader to particular texts or monographs. These are in the nature of lectures on the most important aspects of South Asian art, both ancient and modern. There are more abstract themes such as on the study of Indian Art and the relation between Art and Education. One is on Indo-Persian poetry, depicting the classical heritage, as well as an essay on Jamini Roy, surely one of the first to be written in the artist s lifetime, celebrating a genius who provided a technical link between mughal miniatures and Chughtai art. Suhrawardy contributes two lectures on the theatre, on e of the nature of theatrical art and one on the modern European stage; themes that were elusive to all but a handful of the initiated. From the theatre he passes on to his contemporary writers in Europe. These lectures have not been only the means of invigorating the cultural scene of India, they also recall the times when Calcutta was the hub of Indian cultural activity. Shahid Suhrawardy was a scholar who, through these lectures, established Art criticism on a sound footing in academia as well as in the world of Art. These lectures are still interesting and instructive, and both the cultural historian and the educationist continue to gain insight from it. Bookseller Inventory # POW9780195476712

Item Description: Sheep Meadow, 1994. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In 1944 Ismat Chughtai successfully defended herself before the Imperial Crown Court against a charge of obscenity for her short story "Lihaaf" - "The Quilt". The narrator of this story, a precocious nine-year old child, is sent to visit an aunt. This aunt, ignored by a husband whose only interest seems to lie in entertaining slim-waisted young boys, suffers from a relentless bodily itch, an itch, her niece discovers, no doctor can cure and only her maidservant can relieve. Frank and often wickedly comic, Chughtai's stories were the imaginative core of her life's work, drawn from memories of the sprawling Muslim household of her childhood. With her mastery of the spoken language, economy of form, and her fine eye for the details of the intricate and hidden world of women's experience, Chughtai captured the evolving conflicts of Muslim India. Her exploration of the myriad and subtle tyrannies of middle-class gentility, and, equally, of those unexpected moments of sexual liberation and spirit, is unrivalled in contemporary Urdu literature.

Item Description: B.R. Publishing Corporation, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. 15x23 cm. Studying a creative writer conversationally and in moments much less guarded, one field facilitated in locating and appreciating his personal meanings of words and this in turn makes our appraisal of his works poignant. The role of interview with creative writers becomes all the more significant when they quite belong to us but originally write in languages not our own. In this context alone, this book which contains Ranavir Rangra`s interviews with sixteen modern women writers in twelve languages would attract our immediate attention. The interviewer strives to meet each writer on her own ground. None of the interviews in this volume betrays predispositions, studies preferences or even a passing platitude on his part to convey the impression that he is indulging in a verbal warfare to carry his own point. He sets the conversation so self-effacedly that, attuned to his work, the writer opens up on the creative issues vitally important to him. The book, perhaps the best of its kind on the Indian literature, presents scenes of cultural cross-roads in a vastly diversified society speaking different languages and learning to knit into a single whole. When self-righteous political programming in national integration may not succeed for want of a suitable state of mind, the pull of a joint creative participation as this one might work beyond expectation.

At a time when writing by and about women was rare and tentative, Chughtai explored female sexuality with unparalleled frankness and examined the political and social mores of her time. She wrote about the world that she knew, bringing the idiom of the middle class to Urdu prose, and totally transformed the complexion of Urdu fiction. Lifting the Veil brings together Ismat Chughtai?s fiction and non-fiction writing. The twenty-one pieces in this selection are Chughtai at her best, marked by her brilliant turn of phrase, scintillating dialogue and wry humour, her characteristic irreverence, wit and eye for detail.

Perhaps her darkest novel, a narrative of lost hope and endless cycles of corruption and injustice, it traces the journey of Masooma, a young woman from a respectable Muslim family who becomes embroiled in a game of exploitation and treachery and becomes Nilofar, a commodity that can be easily bought and sold. Once again, in telling Masooma?s story, Chughtai cuts open the underbelly of India?s political landscape and the underpinnings of the Bombay film world to reveal their shadowy and unsavoury side.

Item Description: Norton. 1 Cloth(s), 2011. hard. Book Condition: New. Spanning a century of modern Middle Eastern literature—from the Arab poet Khalil Gibran to the Nobel laureates Naguib Mahfouz and Orhan Pamuk, from the great Syrian-Lebanese poet Adonis to the grand dame of Urdu fiction, Ismat Chughtai—this treasury reveals a people of diverse religions, languages, and cultures, yet united by the legacy of Western colonial rule. Los Angeles–based Iranian-American Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, presents nearly 200 short stories, poems, excerpts from novels, memoirs, essays, and works of drama with the intent of creating a bridge between our estranged cultures."This landmark collection of writings from the modern Middle East reminds us of the region's magnificent and proud literary tradition. That would be gift enough. But the powerful voices within these pages also guide us past clichéd perceptions of the region as a hotbed for militants and extremists and bring to life the hopes, aspirations, and struggles—indeed the common humanity—of one of the world's most diverse and fascinating regions."—Khaled Hosseini"This mammoth anthology goes a long way toward achieving its equally mammoth goal: to shift American views of the Middle East away 'from the ubiquitous images of terrorists and fanatics.'. An impressive success that spans vast regions of time and territory, this is that rare anthology: cohesive, affecting, and informing."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)"This unique and splendid gathering of poems, memoirs, fiction, and essays, many translated into English for the first time from Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Urdu, covers the past century of frenetic disruption and change in works of beauty, dissent, irony, and romance. Of particular interest are women writers. Parvin E'tesami (1907–41), of Iran, wrote in a poem titled 'Iranian Women': 'Her life she spent in isolation; she died in isolation. / What was she then if not a prisoner?' Born in 1940, Kishwar Naheed, of Pakistan, winner of the Nelson Mandela Award, writes, 'It is we sinful women / who come out raising the banner of truth.' Many truths are brought to light in this remarkably energetic and gloriously multicultural volume from a crucial part of the world."—Booklist 657. Bookseller Inventory # 41486

Item Description: Women Unlimited, New Delhi, 2013. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. In this selection of stories from one of Urdu?s best and boldest feminist writers we move through the chawls, havelis, mosques and villages of India, meeting characters from all classes of society. Here there are the want, resignation and ambition of the poor, the arrogance of the rich, the pain of women still tied to traditional notions of subservience to men, and the bankruptcy of a declining feudal world. Chughtai brilliantly exposes the hypocrisies of a society with a progressive fa?ade that is still caught in the binds of conservative opinion and traditional mores and values.
