It took me a while to finish this book Bought it sometime last year The reason I bought it was because in 9th grade Urdu text book we had a chapter from this novel I really liked that chapter I actually liked most of the chapters mainly because I have a lot of respect for all old age Urdu writers nationalism and all P Khadija Mastoor is also sort of regarded as one of the first feminist minded writers of the Era i read that somewhere not sure where P But after reading this novel i pretty sure its true though her sense of individual independence in no way undermines the classical duty of a south Asian daughter to her family old fashioned lady some might sayNow this novel is really different in way of speaking It is set in the time period 12 13 years before the independence of subcontinent from British Rajrule The thing that makes this novel interesting is that its not about the freedom fighters or the politicians who sacrificed their lives for the freedom It’s about the people who were being sacrificed long before the race for freedom started It is about the families of those men their children their wives the households that were ignored and were the silent sacrifice The people who really could not bring themselves to care if the subcontinent was freed or not Whose lives were bound in the 4 walls of their houses who were demoted from their splendid lifestyle to surviving on funds the household servants were not even used to As their men gave all they had for the “important” causeThe children who grew without the supervision of a father whose father were out saving the mother land The women who spent their days worrying about heir husbands’ well being a lot of freedom activists were being constantly jailed by British government especially Congressmen and worrying about where the funds for next months meal will come fromIt’s about a such a generation who was caught between ideologies of Congressthe party that wanted freedom from British Raj but not a divided India and Muslim League who after freedom wanted a separate Muslim State aka Pakistan In case of Muslim households there was chance a good chance that both party views could exist in same family’s different membersIts the story of narrow minded cultural practices which were mostly pushed by women of the family the senseless and hypocritical nature of them and how these made up cultural taboos took lives and nobody even in their hearts felt sorry for what they have doneThis is the story of world of women of that time period Their aristocracy which inspired suffering their suffering which inspired no one Its not a story of just victims but of those they victimized

S live under the permanent menace of political violence Throughout the gendered impacts of armed conflict and political violence are key issues The gendered causes costs and conseuences of violent c. I’ll go right ahead and write this down Khadija Mastur’s “The Women’s Courtyard” is one of the most satisfying novels I have ever read It is elegant poignant and utterly unputdownable There is much to be said about Mastur’s simple frills and frippery free style of storytelling and Daisy Rockwell deserves a shout out for doing justice to this manuscript which has been translated from Urdu Aliya finds herself securely sealed within the suffocating confines of her home relatively safe from the troubles of a world in turmoil with the final stages of India’s struggle for freedom playing out and the partition looming ahead But she is all but cut off from an outside world with its endless possibility for one who dreams of self – sufficiency and left to keep her hopes alive amidst the broken dreams and carnage of conflicting ideologies evidenced by her extended family The protected environment she has grown up in proves insufficient to the task of shielding her from the trauma of losing her beloved elder sister Tehmina and dear friend Kusum to suicide when they invest too heavily in the possibility of heady love and romance in the otherwise arid landscape of their lives only to be left utterly devastated These episodes leave her with no faith where romance is concerned especially since she is also an appalled witness to the marriages of her mother and aunt to men who are wedded to their politics Aliya is horrified by both the anger and pettiness of her mother as well as the emotional ruin her aunt is Yet with a wisdom that belies her years she is filled with compassion has a reservoir of good sense and never ceases to care for her tormented loved ones choosing to learn from their mistakes while teaching herself to shield herself from the pain wrought by irredeemably bad judgement Interestingly enough in this cloistered space reserved for women men who are related by blood seem to have right of access and given a surprisingly free hand to romance stalk molest or manipulate their cousins There is Safdar who loved Tehmina to death Shakeel who has little ualms about stealing from his cousins and Jameel who refuses to take no for an answer Aliya is adamant when it comes to rejecting Jameel’s love for her despite a certain physical attraction fully aware that he has wronged another cousin Chammi writes middling poetry hasn’t distinguished himself in the professional sphere and is a little too much like the other men in her life given to sacrificing their women and children on the altar of their politics Love triangles are usually tedious affairs but the prickly one between Aliya Chammi and Jameel is beautifully realized The book is radically ahead of its time in giving us a heroine who adamantly sticks to her guns when it comes to resisting patriarchy even when enforcers pressure her with the prospects of love and marriage which Aliya realizes are both likely to entrap her surely than the chains she has been struggling against all her life Mastur doesn’t spare the women who enable sexism either Aliya’s mother in particular is a gut wrenching example of a gender traitor A magnificent book that depicts the bitter battles women fight far from the battlefield

آنگنOnflicts have been underrepresented and often misrepresented This book gives a broader understanding of the complex changing relations between women and men in societies facing violence and conflict. This book is one of my favourite in Urdu novels
