Arrived over the weekend to Toronto in impeccable condition. Most importantly, this is *the* authoritative collection of Manto’s work – not impinged by any typos, mis-titled stories, or incorrect re-prints. If you’re looking for quality Urdu material (in binding and print) for your personal or academic needs, I highly recommend starting here. Also, very affordable.

Manto was known to write atrocious truths of the society that no one dared to talk about. Manto apparently loved challenges. What he loved even more was to shock people. He was considered a rebel by the society. He was a master craftsman when it comes to story telling. Manto Nama was the first to hit the shelves. The next in line was Manto Rama. It is compiled of short stories. They all are masterpieces. But the main attraction was the nine letters written to Uncle Sam by Manto which were written in between 1951 and 1954. He couldnt send those letters as he lacked money for postage. In the letters, Manto happily described his poverty, and contrasts it to the image of fabulous American wealth. Manto begins with a note of rancour over the absurdity of the Partition,development in post-colonial Pakistan and US role in these affairs. He also told about his run-ins with American troops stationed in Bombay during the war.He shared his thoughts about religion,politics,films,bollywood and lollywood. Reading his stories you cant help to think, how less he cared about the norms of the society. He wrote what he felt. He wrote what he wanted to. He so openly and with courage shares his own thoughts to reveal the bitter truth of the world we live in.If there was ever a writer from Pakistan showing the real face of society without any regrets, then it has to be Manto. Manto Rama is the must read for those who want to know the answers to our social failure. As Manto said, “If you find my stories dirty, the society you are living in is dirty. With my stories I only expose the truth” And I couldnt agree less.

Manto said: If you cannot bear these stories then the society is unbearable. The quote describes Manto Rama. Manto rama is collection of gripping short stories and fictions. Manto portrayed the real image of society in his stories, His stories show us the real dirt behind our lush society. if there is an award for the perrson who exposed the society, surely manto deserves this award. And about suggestion i would like to say that go and grab your copy of Manto Rama now.You will not regret it.
