    Gone But Not Forgotten Manto’s 61'st Death Anniversary

    Manto is often compared to D.H.Lawrence, since he used to expose the faults, sins and the ugly truth pertaining to the Indo-Pakistan society. He always used to say,””If you find my stories dirty, the society you are living in is dirty. With my stories, I only expose the truth”.

    Some of his works include Thada Gosht, Sarkandon Ke Peechay, Sarak Kay Kinaray, Beghair Ijazat, Shikari Auratain and Phunduney.

    Manto’s last years were spent in Lahore, which were quite pitiful for him. Excessive drinking of wine had a devastating impact on his liver and on January 18, 2015 Manto passed away on a cold morning.
