LIHAF ISMAT CHUGHTAI PDF

Not given to playing martyr, she won the day by sheer guts and a charming sense of humour— all of which contributed as much as her bold writing to making her a famous and immensely popular literary heroine very early on in life. That sets my mind racing into the labyrinth of times past. Memories come crowding in. It seems to me that the blanket, though less comfortable, does not cast shadows as terrifying as the quilt, dancing on the wall. I was then a small girl and fought all day with my brothers and their friends. Often I wondered why the hell I was so aggressive.
