as Basti Hindustan Se Aakhri Khat Jataka Tales and Janam Kahanian (Source: Express photo by Praveen Khanna) Related News Among the most acclaimed Urdu writers in the world today Pakistani writer Intizar Husain 91 is known for works such as Basti Hindustan Se Aakhri Khat Jataka Tales and Janam Kahanian His rich repertoire of short stories draws from the oral traditions and myths of the subcontinent the kathas and Ramlilas he witnessed during his childhood in India and that he reimagines and reinterprets in his narratives A frequent visitor to India he was recently in New Delhi to attend the release of a translation of his short stories The Death of Sheherzad (Harper Perennial) Excerpts from the interview: Partition pushed your family from Bulandshahr in India to Lahore in Pakistan But in your writings there’s Roopnagar the basti with ideal Hindu-Muslim ties Does Roopnagar exist in real life Well the idyll of the place I term Roopnagar did become a khwaab (dream) for me eventually — it was both so unreal and real You cannot imagine those times Hindustan ukhda hua tha (was in turmoil) The riots were fierce and intense and everybody had to leave their homes and look for shelter wondering where to take refuge The riots broke out suddenly but they were products of sustained political sloganeering There were meetings and counter-meetings and rallies talking of polarisation — Panditji-Gandhiji versus Jinnah We suddenly heard there would be no further talks But the Congress versus Muslim League situation gradually got heated and the riots grew so Jinnah issued a call for a separate state It seemed very odd then that India would get divided Like Rahi Masoom Raza’s Aadha Gaon It was exactly like that The minute we heard that everybody had agreed to Partition that even Gandhiji had to give in who we were confident would hold resolute against it we were stunned that the Partition formula went through We weren’t ready emotionally to leave our basti But the riots were so widespread that even those amongst us who did not want to go had to move So it is not as if everyone voluntarily went to Pakistan Where there were no riots the fear of a riot drove people away The basti I mention was completely tension-free We lived on the edge of a Muslim mohalla We were surrounded by Hindu mohallas with small doors opening right into Hindu areas We all lived comfortably When we went on the roof to fly kites we used to run uninhibitedly over Hindu roofs with not a shred of worry What were the things you took to Lahore I had a mattress some clothes and some books There was an old Urdu edition of the Bible which I loved It was in my father’s cupboard which fascinated me as a child From then on I was fascinated by Bible and Sufi stories I loved Russian fiction too — Chekov’s short stories — but the sense of loss after suddenly finding myself at a point of no-return in Lahore drew my mind back to the Ramlilas we would watch So I read the Ramayana in Urdu and English I also read summaries of the 18 volumes of the Mahabharata The several stories woven into each other fascinated me no end After that the katha-kahaani tradition exerted an inexorable draw on my work Was it the same with Arabian Nights Yes I read it as a child It was a book readily found in all homes though girls were not encouraged to read it as people thought it would impact their morality But my girl cousins would hide and read it and so would my sisters So I read it too The original conception of Pakistan perhaps did not visualise such a bad deal for its minorities How did that change Earlier they (Pakistanis) were themselves a minority in India But now that the new country was founded and they found themselves in majority they became a majority to be feared First Ahmadis and now Shias are being termed non-Muslims Bahut jaldi kafir ban jaata hai aadmi wahan (People become infidels very quickly there) What is the connection in such an environment between the literary world and journalism Literary writers are a little distanced from what is going on as they observe from afar so they are less threatened They can also resort to fiction to make a point But an akhbar-nawees (journalist) has to go the spot and report from the ground which is often risky But as extremists do not read literature or our stories we are safe Urdu has been Arabic-Persianised in Pakistan and ignored in India by officialdom while Hindi has been Sanskritised in India What do you think of the politics of languages Yes that is a fact But the common person’s Urdu in Pakistan aam-bolchaal wali bhasha (everyday language) is not so You think I am speaking in Hindi and I think you are speaking in Urdu Both these languages by syntax grammar and usage and words are very close They have been politically kept apart They are one and at the same time also rivals But Bangla on both sides of the eastern border does not have this problem… No because the communal battle was played out on the lines of Hindi vs Urdu Both sides asserted that their language was the lingua franca of India The truth is that both came together to form the lingua franca In Pakistan you must have heard that Urdu has strong Arabic and Persian influences But there are some very interesting trends One is the emergence of the doha as a form of expression in Urdu This was the form used by Kabir Tulsidas and other Hindi greats But now in Pakistan after an enterprising Urdu poet Jamaluddin Aali started reciting them it has become a legitimate form of Urdu poetry So what was exclusively a Hindi form is now an Urdu form Have you gone back home to Dibai in Bulandshahr Yes after a long time when I came to India in the 1970s for the Premchand centenary I drove there and was surprised to see so much change Some things were the same though like the dharamshala and the local hospital But on entering the gullies I found it difficult to navigate to our old house My friend who was accompanying me said I should ask someone but I was resolute I said ‘Yeh meri dharti hai mein yahan paida hua hoon Main kisi aur se nahi poochhonga Maine zara takkarein maareen lekin phir aakhir ghar pahunch hi gaya (This land is mine I was born here I won’t ask anyone I went around in circles but in the end I found our home)’ On reaching I realised that my house had changed a lot I felt so strange that I returned to Lahore without going inside I regretted it later but the next time when I visited India I hunted out my house with the help of a halwai (sweetshop owner) Do you prefer the short story to other forms Yes the tradition of the Progressives in the 1930s and 1940s made it easier to get short stories published We could do it in literary magazines Finding a publisher with a longer novel was usually very difficult so while I have written many novels the short story was the form I found very useful and turned to frequently Talking of the Progressive Writers’ Movement why have you been critical of it I tried to get close to the Progressives but I found their regimentation hard to stomach Especially in Pakistan I felt they were excessively romantic in their ideas of a revolution in these parts and made some strategic mistakes The regime in Pakistan succeeded in minimising their impact after the Rawalpindi Conspiracy (in 1951 in which Sajjad Zaheer and Faiz Ahmed Faiz among others were tried for treason) But eventually the Progressives never accepted me They were irritated by the idea of nostalgia that dominated my work They thought it was reactionary They strongly felt we had to work towards making a better world instead of dwelling in the past For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Agencies |

that a woman’s clothing should be worn to reveal the woman who is wearing the garment Well these two actress-models at the Venice Film Festival seem to have taken that diktat quite literally much to the shock of those present at the event and possibly even the models themselves Attending the photo call for the new TV mini-series The Young Pope on September 3 models Giulia Salemi and Dayane Mello left many person blushing with their jaw-dropping outfits Now given that Italians are not quite as uppity about revealing a bit of skin the Italian models really pushed the boundaries of risque dressing with their barely-covering gowns as they posed across the red carpet Mello wore an extravagant pink dress with a the highest of high slits that went right up the waist where it was cinched with a broad silver belt and off-shoulder puff-ball sleeves The slit was a bit too much to handle for the model herself who suffered through much embarrassment as the dress parted dangerously and Mello had to quickly try and cover up in an attempt to preserve her modesty And though many may not have noticed much beyond the dress and the lack of it might we say we love those shoes Dayane Mello had a wardobe malfunction at the photo call for the television miniseries “The Young Pope” at the 73rd Venice Film Festival in Venice (Source: Reuters) Salemi on the other hand wore a different version of the dress in orange Hers had a plunging neckline with a tangerine-coloured empire-waistline belt and the pleated-skirt cut up into high-slits The back was equally interesting with cross-straps and a dhupatta-like trail Though Salemi seemed more in control of her attire some have called the appearance a show of competitive exhibitionism and we can’t help but agree Actress Giulia Salemi attends the photocall for the television miniseries “The Young Pope” at the 73rd Venice Film Festival in Venice (Source: Reuters) Though the duo were wearing high-cut bikini bottoms while Mello’s shifted to one side – pretty much making the whole effort of wearing it worthless Salemi’s peek-a-boo moments just looked tacky To say that this is the first of its kind when it comes to risque dressing at film festivals won’t be correct This year has seen gown slits going daringly high before (possibly not as high as this though) necklines a plunging low and sheer take on a whole new

giving and not getting Related News My father who is all of 95 years old today once told me of two very important lessons that his mother had taught him when he was a little boy — one of nine children The first he learned on a day that has been etched in his memory forever Mother and son were standing by the double-shuttered window of their one-room tenement in a chawl in Dongri Mumbai — she was leaning out from the upper one whilst he was squatting on the floor and dangling his feet out from the lower one Quietly they were watching the world go by Suddenly an open truck came into view with loudspeakers blaring On it a couple of men perched on mounds of clothes were calling out to onlookers: “De do De do Give give Old clothes Blankets Vessels” “What are they collecting for” the little boy asked his mother “There have been severe floods in Gujarat People have lost their homes money livelihoods and even family members These people are collecting things to help them at this difficult time in their lives” his mother replied At that time my grandmother was a struggling woman working very hard to provide for her nine children single-handedly There was no surplus in the house but she had just bought some provisions She pulled out a bag of rice and lowered it in a basket from her window into the eager hands waiting below My father noticed the smile that lit up his mother’s face as the bag was being lowered It was a smile of joy at being able to help in her own little way He wanted to participate too He wondered what he could contribute Suddenly he remembered a sailorsuit that a relative had given him It was new still awaiting an occasion to wear it It was one of the most precious pieces of garments that he owned “Ma” he called out “can I give my sailor suit” She smiled and said “Of course you can” My father ran and fetched his lovely blue-and-white outfit He reached out of the upper window and flung it onto the waiting truck He says he still remembers seeing it slowly drift down it seemed to be dancing on its way a dance of joy because it would soon make a small boy who received it very very happy His mother could have told him “Beta why give away your new suit Give something old you know that I’ll not be able to buy you another one” But she didn’t She supported him in his decision for she knew that the joy of giving happily to others was far greater than keeping it for oneself It was a lesson he never forgot Throughout his life through all of its ups and downs he gave generously to all those who approached him When his business was doing well he gave more when there was a downturn he gave whatever he could afford but he gave for the sheer joy of giving A few years later my grandmother’s fortunes were on the mend Her oldest son had a job in a mill and was bringing in a steady income The children were in school; one daughter was married into a well-to-do family They were no longer living hand-to-mouth However they still continued to stay in the old tenement in the mohalla Every year their street livened up on account of an urs or fair held in honour of a saint The streets were lined with goodies Every day as he walked to and from school my father would pass by a small make-shift stall laden with toys On one of the wooden shelves stood a red fire engine sparkling in the sunlight It had a ladder that could be raised a long water hose and even a bell that rang One day he persuaded his mother to come with him to the stall and see the fire engine “You’re right” she said It is beautiful” “Please please could you buy it for me” “I could but I won’t” “B-but why Ma I really really want it” “That’s exactly why” she said “If I buy it for you you will grow up believing that you can have all that you desire But my son life does not work that way” That was it Case closed No further arguments He told me this story years later when I was about to give in to my child’s demands for a toy “If your child grows up believing that she can have whatever she wants she is going to be one unhappy woman” I was quiet confused Then I burst out “But she is so little What is wrong about giving a child a gift that she so desires” He continued “In life my child wants are endless should we indulge them all They are mere baubles Everyone is chasing them but think about it will they bring her true happiness Believe me she will grow up to be a better and stronger person because you had the courage to say no” Case closed No further discussion As time went by I realised more and more the wisdom of his words and the joy of giving and not getting Today as I sit by his bedside holding his hands I try to jog my father’s memory about days past – hoping to find more nuggets of wisdom But alas dementia has claimed his memory and all that is left of him is his physical presence So I treasure the ones I have passing on his legacy to my children and hope that they will in turn pass it on to theirs keeping my father’s wisdom alive in our

advertising boycott of YouTube is broadening a sign that big-spending companies doubt Google’s ability to prevent marketing campaigns from appearing alongside repugnant videos PepsiCo Wal-Mart Stores and Starbucks on Friday confirmed that they have also suspended their advertising on YouTube after the Wall Street Journal found Google’s automated programs placed their brands on five videos containing racist content AT&T Verizon Johnson & Johnson Volkswagen and several other companies pulled ads earlier this week The defections are continuing even after Google apologized for tainting brands and outlined steps to ensure ads don’t appear alongside unsavory videos It’s not an easy problem to fix even for a company with the brainpower that Google has drawn upon to build a search engine that billions trust to find the information they want in a matter of seconds Google depends mostly on automated programs to place ads in YouTube videos because the job is too much for humans to handle on their own About 400 hours of video is now posted on YouTube each minute The company has pledged to hire more people to review videos and develop even more sophisticated programs to teach its computers to figure out which clips would be considered to be too despicable for advertising Contacted Friday Google stood by its earlier promise signaling the company’s confidence that it will be able to placate advertisers As part of that effort Google intends to block more objectionable videos from ever being posted on YouTube — an effort that could spur complaints about censorship Some outraged advertisers are making it clear that they won’t return to YouTube until they are certain Google has the situation under control “The content with which we are being associated is appalling and completely against our company values” Wal-Mart said in a Friday statement Besides suspending their spending on YouTube Wal-Mart PepsiCo and several other companies have said they will stop buying ads that Google places on more than two million other third-party websites If Google can’t lure back advertisers it could result in a loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue Most analysts though doubt the ad boycott will seriously hurt Google’s corporate parent Alphabet Inc Although they have been growing rapidly YouTube’s ads still only represent a relatively small financial piece of Alphabet whose revenue totaled $735 billion last year after subtracting commissions paid to Google’s partners YouTube accounted for $56 billion or nearly 8 percent of that total based on estimates from the research firm eMarketer Inc At most RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney said he expects the YouTube ad boycott to trim Alphabet’s net revenue by about 2 percent this year Moody’s Investor Service predicted the backlash won’t last long because Google is “laser-focused” on cleaning things up on YouTube Alphabet’s stock price has fallen nearly 4 percent since the boycott began
