Sohail Naseer – February 10, 2019
‘Kachway’ is a book of short stories by Intizar Hussain, which I divide into two parts. The theme of the first half stories are about partition of Pakistan from sub-continent and Bengaladiah from Pakistan specially. There isn’t anything new that I haven’t mentioned in reviews of his previous books. Though There are some beautiful stories like ‘Industan se Kath’ and ‘Nendh’ but there isn’t anything unique that be mentioned. But in tbe second half the stories are intensely influenced by Budha and Jatak tradition, in which there are stories inside stories like a chain of infinite stories with Bhudist allegories and myths. Intizar Hussain being a lover of Dastan from the beginning of his stories has always maintained his style of a ‘Dastsn Gu’ but these Bhudist allegories with stories inside stories is totally something new within the tradition of Dastan. I loved this and hope you’ll also love it.
