Meet Saadat Hasan Manto

He is called the father of the Urdu short story for his honest and harrowing tales of Partition. Now his life has been made into a movie by Nandita Das.

    Manto, one of the best movies I have watched so far.

    Had Manto opposed partition? It's very unlikely, in fact natural if he hadn't. While his literary capabilities cannot be doubted and must be preserved, would it be out of place to ask whether Indians do this largely to ingratiate themselves to Pakistan (within India itself, non-muslims to muslims)? Do Pakistanis honour/celebrate indian writers on similar narratives?

    A great short story writer in Urdu indeed. Immortal for his creative writing.

    I played the role of Manto in one of our office social events where his story ' Jao Hanif Jao" was screened as a drama. It is one of my most liked roles of my career as an amateur drama artist. I respect Sadat Hassan Manto.

    You smile, you burst with anger, you get goose pimples, you feel like breaking everything around you into pieces, when you read Manto's stories. I read it in English only. I wish I knew Urdu!

    Good. For years history has been suppressed and twisted. It is time our children and the whole world knows what tricks were played upon our nation.
