Khali Botlan Khali Dabbe

Description Sadat Hasan Manto’s short stories have intensity of conflict of Anton Chekhov, suspense and sting in the tales of O’ Henry, and character portrayal of Kulwant Singh Virk. His short stories are stories of realism – social, economic and psychological. His choice of titles for his stories is symbolic, subtle, revealing and his character portrayals are graphic projections of real flesh-and-blood men and women. Stark realism, subtle penetrating sarcasm, literary, loaded diction – all distinguish his stories from the short stories of lesser writers. Punjabi version of Manto’s Urdu stories has enriched both the Punjabi literature and Punjabi readers. Kulwant Singh Virk’s introductory description sums up the depth and versatility of Manto’s literary genius.[edit]
