M. M. ALAM KARACHI: Saadat Hasan Manto was born on May 11, 2012 in Samrala (India) and after an eventful life died on January 18, 1955 in Lahore at the age of 43. It seems that the short-story writer was misfit in the era he was born. He was accused of vulgarity because the readers were not ready to accept the naked truth at that epoch. Nevertheless, today he is acknowledged as the region’s greatest afsananigaar ever.
