Originally published as Āg kā daryā in New Delhi : Kali for Women, 1998.
Description
River of Fire encompasses the fates of four recurring characters over two and a half millennia. Four characters of Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and Christian faith, reappear throughout the novel in various reincarnations but interestingly enough, with the same names. These characters become crisscrossed and strangely inseparable over different eras, forming and reforming their relationships in romance and war, in possession and dispossession.
Language
Text in English translated from Urdu.
