Sunehri Ullu Ka Shehar by Mustansar Hussain Tarar Pdf Free Download
Sunehri Ullu Ka Shehar Safarnama, written by Mustansar Hussain Tarar. This book is an Urdu travelogue of Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, and Rajasthan, India. Tarar and renowned Pakistani poet Ahmed Faraz explore these places with a sharp eye, a lively sense of humour, and a keen awareness of Indo-Pak history.
The book’s portrayal of the Taj Mahal‘s unrivalled grandeur is so powerful that even a wordsmith like Tarar is left speechless. The descriptions of his trips to Akbar the Great’s mausoleum and the barely-lived city of Fatehpur Sikri give colour to the tour.
Despite its deep dive into history, culture, and politics, the book retains a lighthearted feel, often inciting chuckles from the reader. However, Tarar’s propensity to venture into lengthy reflections may require a patient reading. His encounters with prominent figures like Ahmad Faraz, Intizar Hussain, and Naseer Uddin Shah enrich the narrative, adding a personal touch.
The travelogue also subtly emphasizes the underlying tension that a Pakistani traveler felt in India, which is a feeling that an Indian traveler might feel in Pakistan. Despite this, Tarar’s enchanting narration incites an irresistible urge to visit these places.
While the author’s interaction with the Pakistan hockey team, once the best in the world, at the airport concludes the book on a note of nostalgia, the elusive golden owl, the titular character, leaves readers with a sense of mystery and longing.
Through the skilful use of language, Mustansar Hussain Tarar crafts a compelling story in “Sunehri Ullu Ka Shehar,” a fascinating fusion of history, culture, comedy, and travel. His well-described scenes and captivating narrative captivate the reader.
