Summary

Ibn-e-Insha, real name Sher Muhammad Khan, born on June 15, 1927, died on January 11, 1978, was a Leftist Urdu poet, humorist, travelogue writer, and columnist. He is regarded as one of the best humorists in Urdu. His writing has a distinctive diction laced with language reminiscent of Amir Khusro in its use of words and construction. He was associated with several governmental services including Radio Pakistan, Ministry of Culture, and National Book Centre of Paksitan. He also served the UN for some time, and this enabled him to visit a lot of places and was the reason for his subsequent travalogues. Some of the places he visited include Japan, Philippines, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Afghanistan, Iran, India, France, UK, Turkey, and the US. Dunya Gol Hai is a humorous and fascinating account of many such travels.

Wonderful listen

This was an absolute pleasure. As a Pakistani living abroad, this transported me to the land I came from. The language, expression and narration are all top notch. I've bought all Ibn insha work, Urdu Studio has done a sterling work, however the library here is low, I hope The Urdu Studio can publish other authors like Mustansar Hussain Tarar ( travelogues) and Nadeem Hijazi ( Urdu Fiction Novels). Keep it up!
