New York Ke So Rang by Mustansar Hussain Tarar Pdf Free Download
New York Ke So Rang is an expansive travelogue by Mustansar Hussain Tarar, one of Urdu’s most prolific travel writers, presenting a vibrant tapestry of New York City and Orlando, Florida. Spanning a hefty 638 pages, the author’s exploration is as vast as it is detailed, diving into the heart of these iconic cities with a blend of humor, historical insight, and personal reflection.
The book sees the author traversing New York’s bustling streets, from Central Park to Times Square, Harlem to famed museums. While the extensive descriptions of museum artifacts and artists might feel overwhelming to some, they testify to the author’s in-depth knowledge and understanding of art and culture.
The narrative takes a poignant turn as the author witnesses a plane soaring in the New York sky, instigating memories of 9/11 and its enduring impact on the world and his home country, Pakistan. The unsettling similarity between his name, Tarar, and the word ‘terror’ adds a hint of bitter irony, indicative of the challenges faced by Pakistanis in post-9/11 America.
Tarar’s visit to the World Trade Center site evokes deep empathy for the victims. However, it also brings to mind the countless others affected by America’s subsequent wars. A subsequent excursion to Orlando, Florida, punctuates the narrative with encounters with the city’s unpredictable coastal weather.
“New York Ke So Rang” is a quintessential Tarar work, lengthy and rambling but filled with delightful moments of self-deprecating humor that leave readers in fits of laughter. Despite its meandering nature, the book’s charm lies in its mix of light-hearted comedy and sober reflections, encapsulating Tarar as a ‘leering, dirty old man’ with a knack for storytelling.
Tarar’s travelogue offers a colorful, multi-layered portrayal of New York and Orlando. Although it may not inspire an overwhelming fondness for these cities, it indeed provides a nuanced, humorous, and at times poignant perspective on these American metropolises.
