J.J. Baloch has produced a very powerful novel which paints the gender pulse of Pakistan society in a very critical and insightful way. Indeed a very soul-stirring story with exploring the true potential of Pakistani women being very positive and patriotic. Worth reading and outstanding contribution to raising the flag of gender cause in a conservative society where the woman victimization is commonplace. Hussain

Though I have not gone through this book - some peeps only, yet it conveyed me a strong message of a traumatised woman.... a beautiful depiction of a peculiar situation which otherwise I felt only from Khalil Gibran n Homer. Khalil does zoom in the whole situation . Homer, who wrote Odyssey/Iliads 800-900 years BC, does the same work though his works were more mythical. Odysseus embarks on a voyage to fight out with the Troy n faces excruciatingly tough ordeals afterwards. So does write Mr. Jiskani. A women opens her eyes in a repressive society, does not cave in to obsolete norms n fights out till the last. In this novel, a sort of vicarious feelings scale up n one feels as if an audacious woman talks. A time will come when people call Jiskani Neo-Homer of Pakistan. The work of a writer is hardly appreciated in his age. It is the time which sorts the cream out of the scum. He boils down the whole vile situation which pervades in this landscape - a thought provoking novel that stirs a human mind up n leaves it agitating for a good deal of time. Many question marks leave a human both irate n ruminative. A fantastic book indeed. Can we say hats off to the writer ? Some presume yes. The rest may go for a critical appreciation. Anyway, no one can snatch the inherent quality of a good piece of writing. It is a fait accompli.

This is very inspirational work for novel readers specially females who want to know about the power of cultural constructions of gender, love, freedom and the real powers inherent in women who can work wonders and who can fight to the finish all deepseated deprivations and widespread discriminations grown in a societal frameworks and cultural roots encompassing the statutory and legal philosophies of what is good and what is bad for whom-a women is the true architect of the men; she does not only give birth to him but also shape his character and make his life a success but the man still lives in the grand fantasy of a life without woman who runs in his very essence of the existence. A wonderful novel, a amazing voice and an inspiring message by a man who see the woman a hope for humanity and who trust the woman to change the course of everything inhuman in the age of technology where no one can simply be deprived of what is inevitable and what is real. Accolades for JJ Baloch.
Novel of JJ Baloch is close to ground reality of Pakistani women’s sufferings and is a writing on the wall for those who have long ignored them. Mr Baloch has created a powerful voice for gender awareness. I would suggest this to all feminist to go through such a riveting story which tends to offer an inspiration to all struggling women in Pakistan. Hats off to JJ Baloch
