About The Book

اس مجموعہ میں شامل تمام افسانوں کی کردار نگاری، ماحول اور منظر کی تعمیر و تشکیل میں لفظی کرشمہ سازی قاری کے دل و دماغ کو مسحور کردیتے ہیں۔ اس میں کل تین افسانے ہیں "کفارہ ، ہیرو شیما سے پہلے ، ہیروشیما کے بعد اور عبد المتین ایم اے "، ان افسانوں میں تاریخ کے حقائق کو گاوں کے سماجی کردار میں پیش کرنے کی کامیاب کوشش کی گئی ہے۔ آخری افسانہ کچھ زیادہ طویل اور 9 مناظر پر مشتمل ہے۔ تمہید اس طرح باندھی گئی ہے کہ قاری کردار کی قرائت سے پہلے ہی ذہنی طور پر اس رنگ میں رنگنے کے لیے تیار ہو چکا ہوتا ہے۔ البتہ انجام تک پہنچنے سے پہلے وہ ایک نئی دنیا کی سیر کرنے لگتا ہے اور جب انجام تک پہنچتا ہے تو حیرت انگیز طور پر وہ اچنبھے میں پڑ جاتا ہے اور یہی کسی بھی افسانے کی کامیابی کی ضمانت ہوتی ہے۔
