Firstly my sincere apologies to all Manto fans for the following review This book was bad just plain bad I have never struggled so much to finish any book before this one I really don t know where to even big I have no idea why is this book called Bombay Stories There was nothing Bombay about any of the stories Most of the them were so similar and repetative in theme all about pimps prostitutes struggling actors and directors pathetic parties and aimless drinking Agreed that these elements are a part of any metropolitan city but there was nothing really bombay about it This book has miserably failed to bring out even the slightest essence of the city the writing or the translation most probably was so bland and basic it seems someone just jotted down the stories for the sake of finishing a book I really hate giving one star to any book and I try my best to give it the most stars but this one was just bad I would not recommend this book to anyone especially those wanting to get a real essence of the city of Bombay

Rating 35 starsA collection of 15 short stories set in pre independence Bombay featuring prostitutes pimps writers thugs and the like Written in simple prose at least if you go by the translation the stories are by turns delightful moving and occasionally a little mediocre They also manage to be both frank and subtle which is an excellent achievementThe appendix of the book has three non fiction pieces by Manto which help us understand about himOn society and prostitutes in Women and the Film World Society produces prostitutes and its wide reaching laws foster their existence So why are they stigmatized why is their collective death wished when they too are part of society If we want to transform them into something good then we will have to work to improve society as a whole As long as we don t think with new vigor about how our society operates then in this so called era of culture and civilization there will continue to be prostitutes everywhere and this impurity will never disappearOn gender bias in the way society views men and women also in the same piece Our so called honorable citizens hold fundamentally flawed opinions about prostitutes in that their posturing is essentially no than a way for them to insist upon their respectability and dignity Men control society and take advantage of the power this bestows on them Society says that men always remain men regardless of whether they commit sins at each and every step of their way but a woman no longer remains a woman if she succumbs even once to a youthful desire or some other impulse or if she loses her way for a moment due to a man s forceful demands She s viewed with contempt and hatred and doors close for her that would remain open for menOn what he writes about in a lecture at Jogeshwari College So long as there is human weakness and especially so long as it exists in me I will search it out and expose it in otherswhen I m sitting in a train and take out my new expensive pen just so everyone will look over in awe I get interested in my crassness When my next door neighbour beats his wife but she still cleans his shoes I hardly feel any sympathy for her But when she gets beaten up threatens suicide leaves the house to watch a movie so her husband must suffer through the next two hours of uncertainty then I feel a strange sort of sympathy for bothMy heroine is the cheapest of whores who works at night and sleeps fitfully during the day persecuted by nightmares that she s getting old and whose heavy eyelids are weighed down by years of missed sleep That s what I write about Her desperation her illnesses her anxieties her insults that s what I like that s what I write about not the housewife s pleasant banter good health and high mindedness
