    Borrowed from school library.Despite the fact that the story is about a courtesan, I liked the narrative Perhaps because the narrator was a poet There is nothing to vividly described for readers to cringe The era the book is set in, mesmerised me, making me wonde...

    Umrao Jan Ada is a memoir for a Lucknawi courtesan and it was the very first true story that was ever written for Urdu literature Culturally, I could not stop feeling extremely excited about finally being able to read this book It touched on many parts of my Islamic heritage that brought back childhood memories draped in nostalgia However, I felt that in the end this particular story resulted in being quite dense Urdu literature usually consists of rhythmic poetry Now that s not to say there aren t other literary forms in the genre, but that is the most common Historically and culturally, a person s ability with poesy is what determined how educated, or intelligent they were This is a key facet of the book Without understanding the importance of this cultural practice, it is terribly difficult to absorb the vast majority of it There is an author s note in the beginning of the novel that does a fantastic job of explaining this practice as well as defining the key Urdu words that describe the different kinds of poetry and social gatherings associated with them.The reason that I mention this is because there is a lot of poetry in Umrao Jan Ada, so if you aren t a fan of it there s a good chance that you will not enjoy this narrative at all As I read on, I instinctively read the verses in Urdu in my mind When translated into English, they lose some of their rhythmic appeal and m...

    legend of Lady Luck in LucknowMore than half a century ago I served in the Peace Corps in Lucknow, an old city on the plains of North India It had seen better days The last echoes of the courtly Muslim culture of the 18th and 19th centuries still seeped out of the back streets and along the Gumti River I was fascinated and came to love the elaborately polite Urdu spoken there, the poetry and music, and the sharp wit of many of the inhabitants I enjoyed the delicious Mughlai cuisine and visited all the old nawabi buildings like the Bara Imambara, Jama Masjid, Chhota Imambara and Shah Najaf But that old Lakhnawi culture was disappearing even then I only got the last whiff of it If you would like to read about the days when it flowered, you must get hold of this book It is neither the best novel you ll ever read nor the best translation ever made Khushwant Singh s , but you will fall under the spell of a culture that has nearly vanished Perhaps it concerns the seedier, immoderate part of that culture the world of courtesans, their patrons, musicians, and ...

    There is a poetry to life that we might notice if we take that small aspect called effort Of the numerous books of verses I ve read, Umrao Jan Ada by Mirza Muhammed Hadi Ruswa is undoubtedly one of the finest ever written There is a rhythm in the words that he strings into a verse that rings through one s mind and sends pleasant shivers down the spine Ruswa translates as The Disgraced but is far from what his pen name suggests There must be countless books giving an account of the life of a prostitute but never could one have ever been written like the story of Umrao Jan Ada.Through this book first published over a hundred years ago in Urdu, Ruswa takes one on an enthralling journey through the life of a renowned courtesan whose charm and musical knowledge coupled with wisdom never fails to enrapture one The novel is known for its elaborate portrayal of mid 19th century Lucknow, its decadent society, and also describes as a subtext, the moral hypocrisy of the patriarchal system of the times, where Umrao Jaan also becom...

    The original story is slender and, of itself, I m not sure what I d make of it, but in translation and with an introduction that sets it into its literary and cultural context, this book is a great read All Umrao Jan fans will be interested.

    This famous Urdu novel has been been given the Bollywood treatment twice.Both times,the movies have been well worth watching with some unforgettable music.I didn t enjoy the book as much as I liked both movies.
