Mantonama In Retrospect

The Urduwallahs collaborated with their friends in Pakistan ‘Zambeel Dramatic Readings’ who sent a video clip with the narration of one of Manto’s story titled “Khol do”(Open it) which brought out the elements of partition and obscenity. The strength of the narration mesmerized the captive audience and at the culmination of the story there was a reverberating round of applause.
