Tasveeri Kahani Silsila: Zamir Niazi
Graphic Stories are a popular genre of writing in English as well as in many other languages, and popular in many countries. However, there were no locally produced graphic stories in Pakistan in English, Urdu, or any of the regional languages before the publication of Abdul Sattar Edhi. The rich pictorial presentation of text in this genre is fascinating for children, and effective in attracting reluctant readers to the world of books.
Zamir Niazi was one of the renowned journalists of Pakistan. The book throws light on his early life in India and love for Pakistan that brought him to this country. The beginning of his career and interest in journalism, and years of struggle as a young journalist have been well documented. Zamir Niazi’s writings, his contribution in the field of journalism, and work for the freedom of the press will be of great interest to readers.
