Waiting for the Morning Breeze is a Collection of nine short stories originally in Urdu. This Collection is Remarkable for its nuanced style and the intensity of feeling with which it explores issues of human life and behavior. The trappings of our so called evolving civilization, the dilemmas of the economically comfortable and forward looking man, and the suffering of the poverty stricken populace, with their self-defeating life patterns are examined with sensitivity. The stories reveal an extremely alert and emotionally intelligent mind which is not without a wry sense of humor at the hopelessness inherent in most situations.
