This book is a Hindi Translation of Original Urdu novel Bhatke Huye Log authored by Harcharan Chawla, translated by Khurshid Alam.
Harcharan Dass Chawla was an Urdu writer. Born in Mianwali, he moved to Delhi, India as a refugee as a result of the 1947 partition of India. The event served as the backdrop for his first novel Darinday, and would leave a lasting impression throughout his career, with migration and cultural identity dominant themes of his work.
In 1971 Chawla moved to Frankfurt, Germany then Oslo, Norway in 1974 where he would eventually settle. His shift to Europe would bring new dimension to his writing, addressing issues of loss of culture and identity faced by South Asians migrating to different parts of the world.
