Ek Mohabbat So Afsanay Ashfaq Ahmed
Numan Khattak rated it liked it Jul 15, A rich kaleidoscope of short stories that would be remembered for their sharply drawn characters and a vivid, pictorial quality to the prose that lends every emotion a concreteness – a sureness of footing – not found in regular stuff that philosophises rather endlessly without making much sense under the licence of creative freedom, especially if one thinks of the ‘symbolism’ plague that infected Urdu prose for a couple of decades prior to Y2K.
The thing that I love about short stories in general is the fact that very thin outlines are enough to create characters that the readers begin to care about naturally but of course that requires serious craftsmanship which not everyone possesses All of the stories paint a picture of a certain type of love, therefore it is difficult to pick one out as a favorite.
I don’t think he’s been translated into English, so this review will interest readers of Urdu fiction only. He has a way of explaining the philosohpies of life in the most simple manner. He also earned a special training diploma in radio broadcasting from New York University. No trivia or quizzes yet.

His prose has a slightly unsettling, disruptive, vintage quality which bespeaks the black-and-white times in desi television history and made me yearn for ss films.
Amanay Shah rated it it was amazing Jan 14, Ashfaq Ahmed is a consummate master of words.

Baba, Ajeeb Badshah, Talaash and Shab khoon were my favorites, and first two left me with dry throat. Jul 19, Muneeb Salman rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is worth reading. Jan 31, Shoaib Ahmed rated it really liked it Shelves: But here stories build themselves effortlessly from the first line on till the last with a facility I have come to admire. Apr 03, Maryem rated it it was amazing. Oct 24, Intizar Toori rated it liked it. These aren’t really “love stories” as we know them, but plod through the shadows of tragedy lurking around the corner as an inseparable twin to the human emotion of love, in all its glorious variety.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Absolutely beautiful collection of short stories.
His close association with Qudrat Ullah Shahab and Mumtaz Mufti was also attributed to this tendency. Later, he got a job in Radio Azad Kashmir, which was established on a truck that used to drive around in various parts of Kashmir. Yasar rated it it was amazing Nov 12, Plot of each story was twisty and poignant in the end. None of the short stories in this anthology have a happy ending. Want to Read saving….

affsanay Ahmed, in his later years of life, was greatly inclined towards Sufism. Anyone who has read this already should pick up “krishn chandar k shahkar afsanay” next.
I real liked “Ammi”, “shab khoon”, “Faheem”, “panahein” and “Talaash”. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
