THANDA GOSHT : by Sadat Hasan Manto

A Gujarati adaptation of Sadat Hasan Manto's story 'Thanda Gosht'.
The original story has the riots at the time of India's partition as the setting.

Just that, here the story has been given a new setting. The Gujarat riots of 2002.

Regarding the video i can just say that it is conceptualization of 
one mind(one who has made this video). 
Every individual picturises the scenes of written text in his/her own ways. 
So on the whole it will be tough to tell whether justice has been meted out 
as Mr Manto would have liked or the way you or me would have 
imagined the scenes to be like while reading the story.

Finally, let us pray
that the story is never adapted again in any new setting. 

Amen!!
