Remembering Manto at ‘Rang’ festival ’13


“Education is incomplete without literature,” said Gauhar Raza, an Indian scientist by profession and an Urdu poet by choice, to an audience that had gathered to hear yet another series of anecdotal stories of the celebrated Urdu short story writer, Saadat Hasan Manto.

The occasion was Kalamkaari, one of the five categories of ‘Rang’, an annual festival of Indian arts organised by The Film and Theatre Society (FTS), and the opening session was devoted to discussing ‘Manto and other pillars of Urdu literature’.
