The collection comprises ten stories, out of which, only two or three are translated more often and maybe already familiar to the general reader. Besides these stories there is also very informative introduction about personal reasons of the translator to master Urdu, but also with some very clever insight in the role of Urdu in today's India. This introduction deserves the attention of the reader in the same way as the translated stories themselves.
To sum up - this translation is recommendable to all the fans of Manto's writing and the lovers of the short story itself. To the students of Urdu, it will be very useful to see how close the good translation could be to the original, without sacrificing to much of the poetic of the author and the readability in the target language.
