ÂZar GrifthÂ a book about Saudi Arabia is Launched
Zar Grifth, a book in Urdu, about the life and times of Pakistanis living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is being launched tomorrow.
Zar Grifth, which means ÂIn the Shackles of Money and GreedÂ, is a project of JUSTUJU / The Quest Publishers, and has been written by Mr. Hashim Syed Mohammad Bin Qasim, a Pakistani who has lived for a quarter of a century in the Kingdom.
Mostly in a lighthearted and hilarious manner, and at times in a serious tone, the book documents the history of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the ways of life of Pakistanis (ÂPakBaansÂ) living there, over the past quarter century.
This 270 page book is studded with a number of cartoons, sketches, and pictures, and carries two prefaces, penned by top Urdu critics from Karachi and New York. The critics, Mr. Athar Hashmi, and Mr. S. M. Haneef Akhgar, have expressed their optimism about the success of Zar Grifth among all those who are interested in this brother Islamic Country.
