Ever since Sultana had moved to Delhi, business had slowed down. Unlike her time in Ambala, not a single gora had visited her so far. Even Khuda Bakhsh, her lucky charm wasn’t bringing her any luck. Times were so bad that she didn’t even have any money to buy black mourning clothes for Muharram.

Lonely and idle, Sultana felt as if she was wasting her days away. Until she met Shankar. Confusing, intriguing and unlike any other man she’d ever met—and she’d met more than her share of men—Shankar was just like her and yet nothing like her. What she didn’t realize though was that with a curious exchange and the promise of a black salwar, hers and Shankar’s lives were about to be entangled in ways she could never have imagined.

Written in Manto’s typically engaging style, The Black Shalwarand its surprising twist at the end is as bewitching as Sultana and as unexpected as Shankar.
