Lahore, first released in 1993, is Pran Nevile’s tribute to the land of his beginning. Grounded in reminiscence and redolent with nostalgia, Nevile’s recollections shipping the reader into the center of Lahore because it was once within the Nineteen Thirties and 40s—a urban bustling with task the place humans coexisted harmoniously, unfettered by means of concerns of faith, sector or caste.
From the riotous seasonal festivities of kite-flying to clandestine love- affairs upon rooftops, from matinee exhibits on the cinema to twilight hours spent among the bejewelled dancing women of Hira Mandi, Lahore emerges as a urban of enthralling contradictions and chaotic splendour.
The writer underscores the distinction among pre- and post-Partition Lahore, and the feel of discomfort, loss and eager for one’s place of origin skilled by way of the displaced thousands in India and Pakistan is palpable. Evocative and informative, Lahore is right now social observation, historic documentation and memoir.
