Saadat Hassan Manto was one of the epic writers of his time, whose reign can still be felt. Throughout his life he fought for intellectual freedom. He was just 43 when he died, but he made it pretty sure that this world will remember him by his writing. His short stories have reality in them. These stories had captured the sublime essence of the period before, during and after partition.
