Description: Quratullain Hyder’s second Urdu novel Safina-e-Gham-e-Dil, translated as Ship of Sorrows by Saleem Kidwai, paints a rich canvas of the elite society of Lucknow, a thriving centre of culture in colonial India. The main characters see themselves as proud inheritors of the Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb, but are both limited and unravelled by social constraints as Partition approaches, not affecting them materially as much as rending their personal relations and selves asunder.
