Both countries — India and Pakistan — have lost a true friend for Intizar sahab remained till his last breath I suspect a wellwisher of both the old homeland and the new one Top News Intizar Husain (December 21 1925- February 2 2016) passed away in a Lahore hospital due to complications from pneumonia high blood sugar and a heart attack The news is fresh and raw still but with time his loss will prove to be irreplaceable — both to the world of Urdu literature and to the India-Pakistan relationship There is no denying that Intizar sahab’s contribution as a storyteller is enormous especially in the genre of Partition narratives If Saadat Hasan Manto laid bare the ugliness of 1947 and its immediate brutish aftermath with the urgency of a field surgeon Intizar Husain probed those wounds ever so gingerly peeling away layers from old memories to reveal wounds that have still not healed and may never heal at least not when fresh wounds are repeatedly inflicted on skin that is still sore and tender And both countries — India and Pakistan — have lost a true friend for Intizar sahab remained till his last breath I suspect a wellwisher of both the old homeland he never quite left and the new homeland he grappled to fully understand his entire adult life I remember meeting Intizar sahab in his own basti during a visit to Lahore many years ago and being struck by a singular fact: He looked as much a stranger in a strange land there in what had been his home for over six decades as he did on his frequent visits to India Perhaps it was partly due to the bemused somewhat perplexed look he wore most of the time a bit like RK Laxman’s Common Man But it could well have been due to his ability to occupy the smallest corner of a frame again like the Common Man and never the centerstage Not given to holding forth on any subject least of all his own writings his worldview or his compulsions as a writer Intizar sahab preferred to be a quiet observer contributing little to the conversation that eddied and flowed about him even when the conversation was about him or his craft as a storyteller In fact in my very first meeting when I went to interview him he told me he envied the writer of yore who wrote her books and died and no pesky interviewers showed up asking her why she wrote something or what she meant by it Nominated for the Man Booker International Prize in 2013 Intizar sahab has written five novels seven collections of short stories as well as reportage travelogues and prose essays and innumerable columns spanning a long career as a journalist The one overriding concern throughout his literary career seems to be his near-compulsive need to revisit the past a past that was more syncretic and pluralistic than his present In story after story he has chronicled the changes unspooling from a single cataclysmic event — Partition — and has chosen to view the greatest cross-border migration in recent human history as hijrat the Prophet’s migration from Mecca to Medina in search of safe haven At the same time his oeuvre presents a haunting sense of loss for a way of life that is irrevocably gone coupled with an equally poignant sense of regret He seems to rue the possibilities that Partition presented of building better lives possibilities that were lost or frittered away In Basti the first of his great Partition trilogy (the others being Aage Samandar Hai and Naya Ghar) he presents a Pakistan poised on the verge of breaking off from its eastern arm While seemingly a rambling personal narrative the novel makes several strong political statements the strongest being its questioning of the two-nation theory The “idea” of Pakistan Intizar sahab seems to be telling us was betrayed by Pakistanis themselves and not by their eastern cousins He is brutally honest in his recounting of those early days of innocence and goodness and large-heartedness of the new people in the new land united not so much by one religion but by a common loss and the feeling of homelessness Soon to his dismay the days gradually grew soiled and dirty; the goodness and sincerity leached out and in its place there was greed corruption and intolerance The story of disillusionment is taken up even more strongly in Aage Samandar Hai Dipping between the past and present moving seamlessly between an India of his imagination and the one he visits he draws upon sources as diverse as the Panchtantra Jataka Katha Katha Sarit Sagara Mahabharata and the Vedas as well as the equally ancient traditions in Alif-Laila and the dastans But everywhere — whether it is the hans-hansni winging their way to Kailash Mansarovar or the weeping cat of Cordoba — the idea of a home is paramount He seems to find a philosophical calm in the words of the Buddha who said: “O monks there is no peace in any birth and no settlement remains settled forever and every home that is set up is set up to be abandoned” As we struggle to cope with the loss of the greatest Urdu writer of our times we can only hope that Intizar sahab has finally found his way home Jalil a Delhi-based writer has translated ‘Aage Samandar Hai’ as ‘The Sea Lies Ahead’ (Harper Collins) For all the

muted Going public with his sexual orientation for the first time in a powerful essay Cook wrote he is “proud to be gay” and that he considers “being gay among the greatest gifts god has given [him]” Yet Cook’s homosexuality has been something of an open secret Sections of the media for instance included him on power lists of gay celebrities after he took over Apple — and the softening of public opinion on gay rights in the United States has made it that much less terrifying to declare it to the world Yet there are few openly gay chief executives in corporate America and the threat that a public disclosure could adversely affect their careers or overtake other aspects of their personal and professional persona is still very real So Cook’s declaration which treats his sexuality as central to his identity — he writes that it gives him “a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority” and makes him more empathetic — can be all the more resonant Celebrities who come out today are rightly heralded for their courage but the announcement loses power if no pink glass ceiling is broken The fact that Cook can be gay and lead one of the world’s most valuable companies must offer comfort succour and inspiration to those struggling with discrimination at work In a perfect world Cook would not need to offer himself up as a symbol for gay rights But as some virulent reactions to his coming-out show equality in the workplace or even in private spaces continues to be a pipe dream in many parts of world — including shamefully India For all the latest Opinion News
