Bahao By Mustansar Hussain Tarar. If we go back in time, the Indus Valley was alive and kicking. That's the magic of this novel. It takes us back to the world where our ancestors earned their bread and butter. The dunes of the Indus Valley and the marshy lands of that time. A great piece of work on human endurance, complex emotions, search for the unknown and of course feminisms of 'Parwarshni' . The Author did some exhaustive research on the aforementioned era and the result is evident in the novel. Intizar Hussain once called it "The Novel of The Century" and this is without a doubt one of the most spectacularly woven tale of our time. A story of human endurance and survival, of unfathomable depths, this novel literally broke the mould.
