LUMS READS - Discussion Session on Toba Tek Singh
The LUMS READS text for September is Toba Tek Singh by Saadat Hasan Manto.
The first discussion session will be held on:
Date: Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Time: 4:00 pm
Venue: Second Floor, Library Building, LUMS
The story will be read and a discussion will take place on its literary aspects. The discussion will also explore why Manto uses lunatics as his main characters. What space does this technique open up and what is the literary tradition of which it is a part? How can this help students in their own writing?
Please read the story (available in both Urdu and English here) with this theme in mind and come prepared with your questions and observations.
