Saadat Hassan Manto, a great Urdu literature writer, passed away from us for 65 years, but his stories, articles and sketches still remain prominent in Urdu literature.
Saadat Hassan Manto, a unique and prolific writer of short stories and folklore in Urdu, was born on May 11, 1912 in Ludhiana district of the Indian state of Punjab.
The Kashmiri Nation’s ‘handsome’ fashionable ‘neatly dressed and wearing special golden frame sunglasses was a very prominent figure in the writers of his time’, but after coming to Pakistan, he lost friends and foes in the face of extreme censorship. At the age of 43, Manto was just saying goodbye to the 43-year-old.
Manto’s pen was a rare illustration of a particular combination of psychological or psychological disturbances and human nature that led him to fame as well as to humiliation.
Photographs that depict society as its own image have to be refreshed by its ingenuity. The narrator was the most celebrated author of the twentieth century’s most controversial figure, who wrote on prostitutes’ arguing over the proletarian nature, which could be contested by DH Lawrence, and like DH Lawrence, Manto addressed these topics in particular. In the Hindu society, sins were considered socially.
The scope of Manto’s articles rests on the lawlessness of the social divide and the violation of human rights before and after the partition, as well as raising more controversial topics that have often led to court proceedings. Had to go but the law could never send them behind bars.
Saadat Hassan Manto has always said, “I unveil the hidden or backward sins of society that cause the wrath of the society if I have to write, the society in which you are living.” That too is disgusting because my stories are a reflection of the same veiled society, Manto’s stories often seem to contradict the complexities of the social structure in the face of paradox. “
Among the myths he has written, ‘black margins’, loudspeakers,’ cool meat ‘, open’ bald angels’, hunters’ women, ‘God of Nimrod’, black scholars, and many more.
For the last seven years of his age, Manuto de Mall resided in the Dial Singh Mansion, the de facto building of Lahore. Where the last days of his life were in a very sad state. His liver was severely affected by alcoholism and, on a cold morning on January 18, 1955, all the Indo-Pak literature heard that Manto, who had been giving historical literature and stories to Urdu literature, had himself become part of history. He left behind his wife Safia and three daughters.
On the 50th anniversary of Saadat Hassan Manto, the Government of Pakistan acknowledged his literary services and posted a stamp of Rs 5 in his memory.
