یہ وہ کتابیں ہیں جو آج ہیں اور شاید کل نہ ہوں۔ اور یہ ان بے شمار کتابوں کے مزار ہیں جو خاک کی صحبت میں رہتے رہتے خود بھی خاک ہوگئیں۔ ایسی خاک جس سے اب کوئی شگوفہ نہیں پھوٹے گا۔
Based on the program aired by BBC London's Urdu Service & is written in the form of an interview series/ documentary. It talks about the book collections present in countless places in the subcontinent. It is not only about the books in big libraries or big cities, but also about the book collections in the smallest & remotest areas. Starting from the books published hundreds of years ago, collected by our ancestors, in Persian, Urdu, Arabic & various regional languages written on the most diverse topics, it takes you centuries back.
کتابوں کا سودا جس کے سر میں سما جائے پھر اسے چین سے بیٹھےکبھی نہیں دیکھا۔
It is bound to make you nostalgic & sad for the condition of this heritage, but it will also make you happy to read about the steps taken by numerous institutes to preserve history. It will leave you in awe after reading about the lengths people went to for collecting these precious books.
.
It is about a mechanic who left his career to collect more than 7k books, but who was still mocked by educated people for being a mechanic & a man who sold the gold bangles of his wife to buy the only copy of a rare book. People who bought books instead of dinner & many others who visited the remotest places to find exclusive editions & numerous other incidents like these.
.
And then there were collections which wasted away from dust, time, negligence, ignorance, or due to the lack of interest of the younger generation.
.
Highly recommended if you are into history or just love books in general.

دعوی تو ہمارا یہ ہے کہ ہمارا یہ دور شعور کا دور ہے۔ ٹھیک ہے، لیکن قومی میراث کی کڑیاں اگر ایسے دور میں گم ہوئیں تو یقین ہے کہ آنے والے زمانے ہمارے شعور پر اور شعور کے دعوے پر ہنسیں گے۔
یا شاید روئیں گے۔
