Awaz Sayeed’s Khake

Apart from modern short stories, dramas and Nazms, Awaz Sayeed made his place in Urdu literature in the realm of humour by his Khake (life-sketches) in which he portrayed some of the most famous personalities of Urdu literature like Maqdoom Mohiuddin, Alam Khundmeri, Kazi Saleem, Aziz Qaisi, Jeelani Bano, Mughni Tabassum, Waheed Akhtar, Shahryaar and others in his own ingenuous and inimitable style. The book Khake was originally published in 1985. The second reprint of the book was brought out in June 2006 by his son Dr Ausaf Sayeed in association with the Urdu Academy Jeddah. The book was released by Shri Arjun Singh, Honourable Minister of Human Resource Development, Government of India, during a special function held in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The entire book is made available on this website for the benefit of Urdu lovers.
