DID YOU KNOW ?

Siraj Anwar’s three novel’s, namely ‘Khauf-Naak Jazira’, ‘Kali Duniya’, and ‘Nilii Duniya’, published serially in the popular children's magazine ‘Khilauna’, were read with great interest by children and adults alike. In these novels, Siraj Anwar used to present mind-boggling events, scientific charisma, exploration feats, and adventure stories in such an interesting way that people eagerly awaited the next issue. When brought together, the three novels form a trilogy. In Khauf-Naak Jazira, the story of expeditions in remote parts of the world are narrated. Extending this idea, in Kali Duniya, the hero is shown confronting the strange wonders of the underground-world. And in the final instalment of this series, ‘Nili Duniya’, the same hero is shown traversing various planets in outer space. The novel’s protagonist, ‘Firoz’, is also the narrator who recounts his experiences to the readers; he instinctively calls to mind the character ‘Sindbad Jahazi’ and his seven journeys from the legendary dastan Alif-Laila.
