Taking Manto’s writings to Kannada readers

Manto Kategalu is an anthology of 11 of the most well-known short stories of Saadat Hasan Manto by J Balakrishna. Published in 2009 by Lankesh Prakashana, Bangalore, (Price Rs 80, Pages: 107), it also contains Manto’s letters to Uncle Sam (The US). Satirical and hard-hitting, they are relevant even today, given the uneasy US-Pak relationship. Though written against the post-Partition geo-political ethos, they have a contemporary urgency and immediacy.

J Balakrishna’s translation of Manto’s immortal short stories into Kannada highlight the fact that no matter which side of the divide people found themselves in after the Partition, they were hapless victims of unmitigated human tragedy. Today, reading their translations in Kannada not only make them accessible to people in the Southern state, who were far away from the horrors of Partition, and relatively untouched by it, but it also humanises the so-called enemy. It is less easy to demonise a people when you have read about their suffering. 

Though born of one of history’s most gruesome of epochs, Manto’s short stories could lead to cross-cultural conversation, and perhaps, lessen mutual mistrust and suspicion between the two divided nations – India and Pakistan.
