About The Book


زود نویس ادیب شوکت تھانوی نے کئی اصناف سخن میں کامیاب طبع آزمائی کی ہے۔ناول ،افسانہ ،صحافت، مضمون نویسی،ڈرامہ نگاری اور طنزو مزح نگاری وغیرہ ۔ انھیں ہر صنف میں یکساں مقبولیت حاصل ہوئی۔ان کے مزاحیہ مضامین کی تعداد افسانوں سے کہیں زیادہ ہے۔ادب میں ان کا بنیادی رجحان مزاح نگاری کی طرف زیادہ رہا ،یہی وجہ ہے کہ ان کی ہر تحریر میں مزاح کے رنگ غالب ہیں۔عموما شوکت کی مزاح نگاری کے پس پردہ کوئی اصلاحی مقصد یا اخلاقی فلسفہ نظر نہیں آتا بلکہ وہ ایک معمولی موضوع میں الفاظ کے ذریعے مزاح پیدا کر کے قارئین کو ہنسانے کی کوشش کرتے ہیں۔زیر مطالعہ شوکت تھانوی کے ان ہی طنز ومزاحیہ مضامین پر مشتمل "بحر تبسم " ہے ۔جس میں ان کے مضامین منشی،چائے، ماسٹر صاحب،میز،ایڈیٹر ،السلام علیکم وغیرہ شامل ہیں۔جو نہایت ہی پرلطف اور دلچسپ ہیں۔
