Due to lack of priorities, egotism and lack of positive sentiments for one another, we are pushing our society in a direction where there is injustice, inequality, discrimination and prejudice.
This was said by eminent poetess and writer Kishwar Naheed while speaking at the book launch titled ‘Katabon ke Darmian’ here Monday.
The book is authored by Dr. Humaira Ashfaq, an acclaimed literary critic and fiction writer, organized by the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), here at Islamabad.
Kishwar said that in order to bring positive change in our society we all have to give up our arrogance, should show empathy to one another and must allow learned and educated personalities to lead the society from the front.
While commenting on the book, Kishwar said that the way societal pressing issues originally portray in the form of fictions shows the maturity of the author, which lack in our young scholars. “Dr Humaira (the author of the book) writes the stories from the point of view of a third person to avoid biases and exaggeration, which can be observed in her fictions such as Bhagbhari and Ghuggo Ghory”, she said adding the messages in the fictions shows that the author has clear thoughts and conviction to bring positive change in society. Kishwar stressed the need for educating the society, especially the young generation, on norms and values. Executive Director, SDPI, Dr Abid Qaiyum Suleri in his recorded message said that the author through her fictions in her book skillfully unfolds the true face of the society.
