Hajra Masroor

Hajra Masroor (1930-2012) is remembered as one of the most celebrated Pakistani writers of Urdu short stories and narrative fiction. Deeply influenced by the Progressive Writers’ Movement, she made a place for herself among writers like Ismat Chughtai, Saadat Hasan Manto, Krishan Chander, and Rajinder Singh Bedi. Masroor wrote with great energy and wit. Her stories possess an elegant prose style, strong female characterization, and a little twist at the end that keeps her readers baffled and engaged.
