I am a hoarder. I collect things; useless stuff that I think could be useful. I am on a cleaning spree these days. Cleaning drawers, cupboards, shelves and even my computer files. When I look at myself I realize that I have the maximum belongings in home. And most of them are books or magazine. I started reading at 6. At that time I could hardly read but would emulate my brother who would read Urdu magazines for children like Taleem-O-Tarbiat, Bachon Ka Bagh, Naunihal etc. For me those magazines and stories were too lengthy to read. So I started from 25 ana and 50 ana stories of Omro Ayyar and Tarzan mostly.
I still have most of those stories somewhere. And I don’t want to part from it for as long as I can. It reminds me of those long summer afternoons when my brother and I would read and chew Naz pan masala.
I’d try to take pictures and post them here sometime. For now I am posting a picture of two stories (novels) for children. I would love to read that pulp fiction and it almost landed me into trouble when dad found out that I read stories with such gory titles… 😀
