Mustafa Khar is often called the male 'Elizabeth Taylor' (which frankly is derogatory to the legendary actress - atleast she married because she was spoilt and in love! No one can lay that claim on Khar saahib, his 7th wife was 40 years his junior or something) and my mom's interpretation of his behavior as governor during Bhutto years in the rocking hillbilly chaotic 70s is not too complementary either ("women were abducted and brought to Governor House for him to rape", "he put one wife, former air hostess, in a basement, she was never seen again") - basically he was known as a lothario / sex fiend and when I read this extraordinary book in 90s, I was irritated more by Durrani's consistently bad behavior before and after her marriage than the crazy feudal landlord.
Their romance begins as all affairs do: clandestine, amongst protestations from Khar's then-wife that Khar is not a nice guy - remarks totally ignored by a spoilt flippant beautiful social butterfly Durrani who was herself married at the time - and promptly eloped leaving her kid with the first husband. Even the final write-up looks like the middle finger Durrani could give from arm's length.Read more ›
