 About the Author

Saadat Hasan Manto was born on 11 May 1912 at Samrala in Punjab's Ludhiana district. In a literary, journalistic, radio scripting and film-writing career spread over more than two decades, he produced around 250 stories, scores of plays and a large number of essays. He wrote over a dozen films, including Eight Days, Chal Chal Re Naujawan and Mirza Ghalib. The last one was shot after Manto moved to Pakistan in January 1948.

He was tried for obscenity half-a-dozen times, thrice before and thrice after independence. Two of his greatest stories - Colder than Ice and The Return - were among works considered 'obscene' by the Pakistani censors. Manto's greatest work was produced in the last seven years of his life, a time of great financial and emotional hardship for him. He died several months short of his 43rd birthday in January 1955 in Lahore.
