Ek Shauhar ki Khaatir

Aurat!!! Aurat !!! Aurat ~ Ek Shauhar ki Khaatir, Aadhi Aurat Aadha Khwab, and Soney ka Anda

I do not write about the farmer and the mill worker because I do not know their lives well enough. I empathize more with the travails of the middle and lower-middle classes.” – Ismat Chugtai. An all-female cast enacts selections from Ismat Chughtai’s autobiography and three other writings (Ek Shauhar ki Khaatir, Aadhi Aurat Aadha Khwab, and Soney ka Anda) which are essays or ruminations rather than stories. The works reflect Ismat apa’s abiding concern for the state of womanhood, her impatience with empty rituals and her anger at the condescension women are subjected to. Far from being a bra-burning man-hater, Ismat displays an amused fondness for masculine foibles and the same compassion for foolish manhood as she does for any woman of the oppressed class.
