Mazameen e Shaukat Thanvi: Mizahia Mazameen ka Intikhab

Compiled by Muhammad Tahir Qureshi

This book is a representative selection of the humorous writings of Shaukat Thanvi. Thanvi was a keen observer of life and thought, who has written on a diverse range of social, literary and political themes. He focuses on the details of situations. His popular satire Swadeshi Rail, an imaginative account of the fate of the railways once the movement for the independence of India has succeeded, is also included in this selection. The piece envisions the newly independent country being run by inefficient and neglectful officials, with the consequent comedy of errors descending to total chaos.
