About The Book

Syed Akhtar Ahmad (pen name Akhtar Urainvi) was born in 1910 in a respectable Muslim family of Bihar. He served as the Head of the Urdu Department of Patna College and later held the post of Chairman, Department of Urdu at Patna University.
As a teacher and writer, he attained a luminous position in the world of Urdu letters. His original works in Urdu-short stories, dramas, novels and poetry-were highly appreciated by contemporary writers and critics. The younger generation of that time was particularly charmed by his creative acumen and loving penmanship.
Akhtar Urainvi was a champion of Urdu language and literature and worked devotedly for its development both at the political and academic levels. The credit of placing Urdu teaching at the college and university level at par with the other disciplines goes to this teacher-promoter of Urdu language and literature from Bihar.
