Sometime in the late twentieth century, Manto's unpublished novel surfaces in Lucknow, in which he and Ghalib converse from their respective graves, separated by a century and the distance between Lahore and Delhi. Their lives intertwine in shared dreams and the result is an intellectual journey that takes us into the history and perceptions that have shape the people and culture of our subcontinent in the last two centuries. The work of a fascinating mind, Bal's Dozakhnama is a fascinating duet between two literary giants who were also very astute chroniclers of their times.
