A body shall disappear into dust but a voice shall remain.
Here is an audio recording of Qurratulain Hyder reading “Daalan vala” in her characteristic style. This recording was found on this site.
It gives a uniquely overpowering feeling, listening to QH in her own voice! Wonderful.
Voices and minds like hers are immortal; they become a part of our collective conscience.
I too wish I could’ve read her writings in Urdu…but alas!
I’ve put in a request at the library for a translation of ‘Aag Ka Dariya’.
Id: I am glad that you have resolved to read the River of Fire. Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts.
