Srinagar- Days after creating a buzz in Urdu readership of the valley with his upcoming literary work, Tinkey—the “first of its kind” anthology of over 100 micro-fictions—is all set for its formal launch on August 29 in Srinagar.
The reviewers have already hailed the author—noted physician Dr. Nazir Mushtaq—for “daring to pen-down” the telling book mapping some unspeakable wrongs in the society.
“There is a galaxy of good fiction writers in Kashmir but Dr. Nazir Mushtaq creates a niche of his own in the world of microfiction composers,” Noor Shah, Kashmir’s prominent fiction writer, notes in his review.
Shah who has also penned Preface for the book adds: “The author’s love for writing microfiction can be analysed from the fact that “Tinkey” is the first of its kind in Kashmir that any author has dared to pen-down.”
Writer Parvez Manoos has also hailed the book for its subject and storytelling.
In Tinkey, Dr. Nazir, known for his fictional and micro-fictional writings, reminds readers that things aren’t always upright in Kashmir society.
He gives a special reference to how Kashmir’s cultural heritage and ethos is losing its sheen with each passing day.
Even though Dr. Nazir’s book deals with several shadowy aspects of the society, his most microfictions are related to his medical profession.
