First humour book published
Karachi: Imtiaz Abro's book 'In a lighter vein' has been published by the
Matiari district government, making the 329-page book the first book on humour
in Sindhi to be printed in 15 years.
Belonging to a popular literary
family, Abro has rich diction, depicting caricatures of grooms, brides, poets,
writers, married men, artists, politicians, retired employees and other such
characters of the society through his pen. Born to the house of renowned poet
Shaukat Abro, Imtiaz was fortunate to have grown up in a literary and poetic
Abro, who teaches mathematics at a college, started coming
writing when he was quite young. He formed a team of young artists to stage
funny theatres in his home town Hala. His group later travelled to
different cities as well as to various village schools and colleges to perform
He has received appreciation awards from different
government and private organisations, while his comic poetry and songs have been
hired on the local private TV channels as well. He focuses on ideas
which families in traditional Sindhi society enjoy. Despite touching extremely
sensitive issues, he never used his writings to be vindictive - this refinement
distinguishes him from many others.
This is perhaps the reason why the
Matiari district government chose to publish Abro's book first; the publication
is part of the initiative undertaken by the Matiari district government to
promote folk literature, art and culture and appreciating local writers.
The purpose of the government was to encourage writers whose work tended
to go unpublished due to various reasons, while it was also thought that
unbiased works, such as Abro's, could strengthen literary traditions in the
province. Sindhi intellectuals believe that political rivalry and
mistrust have destroyed the tolerant image of the land of Sufis, and works such
as Abro's could spread a message of harmony.
Though there are many
renowned stage artists in Sindh who win the hearts of their audiences, it was
the vacuum in humorous writing that was being acutely felt. There are others who
argue that the time for comic writings has long gone, Abro has proved them wrong
by succeeding to create a vast readership for himself. The news
