KALI SALWAR MANTO PDF

A new collection that debunks the reductionist view that Saadat Hasan Manto was a writer on Partition and prostitutes. He continued to write what he saw and felt, and he wrote compulsively and prodigiously. In the 43 years that he lived, he published 22 collections of short stories, one novel, five or maybe seven, since his years at the All India Radio were marked by frenetic literary output collections of radio plays, three collections of essays and two collections of sketches of famous personalities one called, aptly enough, Bald Angels! What is more, despite being located in its time and circumstance, there is a great deal that remains relatable to decades after it was written. This rich lode has been mined repeatedly—by publishers and translators—in English and various regional languages. And, indeed, diversity is the hallmark of this new collection.

The artist and his art are indeed inseparable in the case of Manto, as Fareeda Mehta revealed in her movie Kali Salwaar. Manto observes and interacts with his creations. As they tell us their stories, the characters also tell us something about their creator. Sultana Sadiya Siddiqui , a prostitute, migrates to Mumbai from Muzaffarpur in search of a better life.

Manto set the original story in Delhi but Mehta, with the help of artist Bhupen Khakhar, convincingly changes the setting to Mumbai. He is concealing a bottle of alcohol in a newspaper, and Sultana teases him about it on the staircase, first with the sound of her footsteps and then through her seductive expressions. The wordless sequence ends with Sultana descending the stairs. This poetic interaction between an author and a character alludes to the process of writing itself — about the control wielded by characters on their creator.

The city pushes her towards loneliness and obsession. What emerges through these conversations is another story about self-discovery. These questions are slowly addressed with Manto acting as the facilitator.

Mehta uses Manto to not only give us a glimpse into his world, but to also tell us what he thought of that world. Kali Salwaar also tells us about the years Manto spent as a film writer in Hindi cinema, his alcoholism but most of all, his humanity.
