Aik Muhabbat Sau Afsanay is a collection of 13 short stories, short stories which revolve around ordinary things in life, or ordinary life or the things we see but neglect, or the things we prefer to not notice. These are dark, raw and truth of society. These stories are not of recent but past pre and post partition, they transport you in time black and white or sepia, writing is so magical It makes you feel you are watching it with your eyes. Every story is extracted from love, every type of love, you name it and it is here, different from other. All are tragic all are different but realistic. Writing is not straight forward like today’s, It seems simple but is layered and philosophical, It left you wondering, every story has an open ending, it is in your hand how you want to interpret it or how you imagine an ending (at least it is what I do). It is one of the Ashfaq Ahmed’s best writing I have read. Simply Beautiful. I enjoyed all of these but Ammi and Ajeeb Badshah are my favorites.

ایک محبت سو افسانے – اشفاق احمد A precious book, collection of short stories that will win your heart and you’ll come back for more again and again. I fell completely in love with Ashfaq saab’s narration style of short stories – precise but whole.
So the book consists of 13 short stories and every story has one thing in common – Love. Love in it’s purest form, every type of love. Tragic and realistic incidents from pre and post partition era, drawing the reader into a whirlpool of philosophical aspects of life and the ordinary things that most of us don’t give an ear to. This book is much more than just a normal book of short loce stories, it’s an efforlessly built kaleidoscope of emotions – natural and beautiful.
This was my first time of reading a book consisting of short stories and I’m glad i picked it. Thank you so much @parh_likh for sending this book for review to me. I’m glad i could read it.
