Noted progressive writer and intellectual Ashfaq Saleem Mirza has come up with yet another masterpiece which has hit the book stores recently in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
The book, “Aao Mil ke Hasein”, is a collection of traditional folklore, anecdotes and quotes from Asian countries which have been translated in Urdu and published by National Book Foundation (NBF), said a press release (PR) issued by NBF.
The book, which mostly targets children, features stories which have been passed on to the present age by several generations, said an NBF official.
However, these characters are very relatable and seem to have been taken out from our everyday lives, he said adding that there is a humorous side to all these stories along with moral lessons.
Apart from that, the use of language further augments the humorous content. The PR said that there is a notable spontaneity in the way each sentence has been crafted, which allows people from all ages to enjoy the book.
