Speaking of what inspired his latest book, Dr. Muhshtaq said, “I am a doctor, I see sufferings of people, social evils, and pathos of my patients that keep haunting me. And I started writing about them. These became short stories which took the shape of ‘Tinkey’. I always show the mirror to society through my works.”
