8:30 Window on the World
Sa'adat Hassan Manto was a writer who confronted social taboos in Indio-Pakistani society. Even though he died only aged 42 in 1955, an alcoholic and penniless, his work still speaks to 21st Century Pakistan. With the help of writers and scholars and Manto's three daughters presenter Sarfraz Mansoor tells Manto's story and assesses his legacy. Often compared with DH Lawrence, Manto (much like Lawrence) wrote about topics considered to be social taboos in Indio-Pakistani society. With stories such as Atishparay (Nuggets of Fire), Bu (Odour), Thanda Gosht (Cold Meat) and Shikari Auratein (Women of Prey), he portrayed the darkness of the human psyche and the collective madness of the social and political changes around him.
