Zaheda Hina writes about Ismat Chughtai, referencing Katha Publishers’ book “Ismat: Her Life and Times”, edited by Sukrita Paul Kumar and Sadique, (2000).
Fondly recalling her own encounters with Ismat, Zaheda Hina writes about Ismat’s indomitable spirit as a child and a young woman. She quotes from Ismat’s biography Ghubaar e Kaarvaan (tr. ‘Caravan Dust’ in the above mentioned book), writes about the attention Lihaaf received and includes extracts from Ismat’s correspondence with Manto after he came to Pakistan.
