My Body, My Choice: the story of a woman's liberation

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Long ago, a man in Banu Israil had a stunningly beautiful wife. The man loved him to madness. But she died soon. The man was so out of his senses that he stayed at her grave spending many days crying, wailing, weeping. One day Hazrat 'Isa عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ passed by the man. Seeing his unbearable distress, his torment and laments, Hazrat 'Isa stopped to enquire him about the cause of his travails.

Woh Jo Shairi Ka Sabab Hua

Woh Jo Shairi Ka Sabab Hua (That which made me a poet) is an anthology of poems of various lengths by Janab Kaleem Aajiz Sb. The book begins with forewords by several eminent literati and a short life story of the poet himself. The life-story, written in lucid Urdu, touches the hearts of the readers and arouses more emotions that a well-planned novel would do. It is a tragedy and a heart-rending one at that. Sadly though, it is a real story.
