Bano Qudsia has written this novel drawing on the religious concept of Haraam and Halaal. It is a totally enthralling journey of three class fellows, of unrequited love, desire and lust. Every sensitive reader who has attended a college or a university in a Pakistani setting is bound to find some similarities between themselves and one of the characters. Just because of this I stopped reading modern urdu literature. Dec 06, soul rated it it was amazing.

Raja Gidh By Bano Qudsia

Naturally the plot is woven to support the thesis. This would be wrong and unjust, Islamically, socially and even ethically.

Out of dozens of books I read in my life, this is the only book that gave me nothing. Cash on Delivery Available.

In the opinion of many readers and critics she manages to convince them that the pursuance of Haraam, be it financial, moral or emotional, results in the deterioration of a person’s normality in some sense. The metaphor of the vulture as an animal feeding mostly on the carcasses of dead animals is employed to portray the trespassing of ethical limits imposed by the society or by the religion.

All characters of this book are negative, selfish and unlucky. Similarlyother things mentioned were accountable too. Apr 27, Yusra Hussain rated it it was amazing.

Aug 09, Ubaid Talpur rated it really liked it. Then there is Prof. The nostalgic narration of the historical Government College Lahore and of the Lawrence Garden Lahore lights upon the days of seventies and eighties. Qayyum is a village boy who fells in love with modern super rich Semi. The novel then takes on touching several moral and ethical issues, beyond the love triangle plot, depicted through the rich culture and everyday life of Lahore. Jul 07, Tariq Mahmood rated it it was amazing Shelves: I need to read a few pages or chapters, then take a break to absorb it and then come back to resume the book.


Jul 24, Ayesha U rated it it was amazing. Thus while Qayum goes through a variety of stages of self-seeking, the secondary plot describes the trial of vultures. Aug 14, Fraz rated it it was amazing.

Hate me for my review but I don’t agree with almost half of the things in the novel.

The only part that I fell in love with is how she bwno the Kingdom of Birds to convey all these complex theories and discussions as they hold a meeting to expel ‘Gidhs’ from their jungle on the account of incurring madness from feeding on human corpses. I read it around 5 years ago and still I feel this story is somewhere with me in my head, in my life. This page was last edited on 23 Juneat Quality read, best ever novel written in Urdu ever.
