Raja Gidh By Bano Qudsia. Raja Gidh by Bano Qudsia is one of the most widely read and acclaimed Urdu novels. Gidh is the Urdu word for a vulture and Raja is a Hindi synonym for king. The name anticipates the kingdom of vultures. In fact, parallel to the main plot of the novel, an allegorical story of such a kingdom is narrated. 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. This novel strongly reflects on the negatives points of our society today. If only we can understand the concept and adverse effects of Rizq-e-haram and learn to strongly believe in Allah and the fate decided by him , we are likely to prosper as a good Muslim and a perfect member of society. From the iconic beginning to the most memorable of endings. No book induces the same feeling as Raja gidh. Unforgettable characters, great plot and an epic depiction of human nature and love. The Best work of Bano Qudsia.
