The Three Innocents and Ors.Chughtai on Childhood Ismat Chughtai Translated by Tahira Naqvi

This work is a delightful anthology that offers a rare glimpse into the lesser known aspects of Ismat Chughtai’s writing—the warmth, humour, and affection with which she writes on her childhood. Shedding all of the certainties of an adult, she steps into a child’s shoes, looks upon the world with an unjaundiced eye, and presents us with scrapes, situations, and sentiments that are refreshing in their candour. This is Chughtai at her disarming best.
