Raakh Novel Summary and Review.
The story of the novel Raakh is written on the backdrop of Pakistan’s separation into east and west Pakistan. It is a narration of the hidden facts that led to this tragedy and how it affected future generations. Tarar Sahib has unveiled many disgusting faces that began to hollow out Pakistan’s roots immediately after its establishment. They fueled the sectarian and linguistic differences and divided the people. Those were the very people who caused the war of 1965 and 1971.
The characters in this novel include Mushahid, his wife Mardan, Zahid Kalia, Dr. Arshad, Fatima, Bargita, and DC Hussain. The story progresses through the characters rather than the events. All the characters are fictional, and they are telling different realities. No character has a leading role; all the characters have their own special significance in their place.
The novel vividly portrays the social and linguistic exploitation, social misconduct, and political ups and downs during the fall of Dhaka. It portrays a rotten society where everyone is a victim of political and social maneuvers.
In Summary, Raakh is all about the fall of Dhaka and its consequences. It is amongst Tararr’s best works, and surely will be a great addition to your library.
