What the author Mr. Qudrat ULLAH Shahab said about his book Shahab Nama PDF
In the introduction of Shahab Nama book PDF, the author said a lot about this wonderful book, but it is not possible to discuss everything here. However, we have described some of the excerpts below. The author says:
“I started writing my daily diary from June 9, 1938. It was not like a daily notebook, but I started writing in my self created shorthand writing every incident or event that I thought was important. It gradually became my habit.
One day I showed all of this script to Ibn-e-Insha, and he laughed. He could not understand my shorthand writing, though he asked why I started writing this diary, especially from the date of June 9? I didn’t tell him at that time. However, the readers who will read the last chapter of this book, will also get the secret of this date.
After some time, Ibn-e-Insha went to London for the treatment of his fatal disease. Before two months of his death, I also went to London to meet him. This was our last meeting. One day he started examining his life in a bit comic way and then started saying seriously, if he has given his life again, then how will he live it. He also asked me if I got a life again, then how will I spend it.
I replied in short, that I will correct my faults, weaknesses and misunderstandings and will live that life just as I am living my recent life. After hearing this, Ibn-e-Insha became alert, he took a page and pen in his hand and ordered me like a school teacher. ” Tell me the reasons, in detail”.
So, I spoke consistently by analyzing myself and he kept writing my statement just like a Police inspector. I told everything to him. After completing, he gave this script to me and advised me to write a book with complete care. He also said that “I will not be alive to read this book, but my soul will be happy”.
Although, I promised to do so, but when I started writing, I became so confused. What I will write? How I will write? In a result, many years passed in this confusion. Finally, I decided to write all of the events, incidents and experiments which impressed me. I will tell everything as it had happened. In addition, I also wanted to clarify a lot of misunderstandings and rumors about me”.
