A novel by Krishna Sobti
Transliterated in Urdu by Abdul Mughni
٭ Pages : 296 ٭ Price : Rs. 300
Published by Dilli Kitab Ghar, in association with Rajkamal Prakashan P. Ltd.,
Eminent Hindi author Krishna Sobti’s novel “Dil-o-Danish”, transliterated “as it is” and published by Dilli Kitab Ghar, is in front of me. It is a very interesting linguistic and cultural portrait of pre-1947 Delhi or Shahjahanabad. Ahmad Ali wrote an English novel entitled “Twilight in Delhi” long time ago which was published in Urdu as “Dilli ki shaam”. The difference is that the latter focussed on a Dehlavi Muslim family and Krishna Sobti’s “Dil-o-Danish” on a Dehlavi Hindu family but Hindu-Muslim labelling exists neither in this novel nor in that one. The post-partition changes in the geographical, linguistic and cultural landscape of Delhi were brought about by the frequent visits to and from across the borders. This perspective has been presented to us by ageing Krishna Sobti with such complete nostalgic power that this novel has attained the status of being an authoritative cultural document on pre-47 Shahjahanabad.
