Fikr Taunsvi: A great satirist


Until a few decades back, Fikr Taunsvi’s ‘Pyaaz ke Chhilke’ was one of the most popular columns and the readers would wait for the newspaper every day just to read his piece and later discuss it.

Ramlal Bhatia, who wrote under the pseudonym Fikr Taunswi, also wrote ‘Teer-o-Nashtar’ for Biswin Sadi. Unfortunately not enough attention was paid to this great humourist after his death.

Dr Mehtab Amrohvi’s book ‘Fikr Taunsvi: Ek Motala’ is a comprehensive work on the life and achievements of this great writer. The book has 212 pages and throws light on various aspects of Fikr’s life, his times and works.

The book is a bit costly at Rs 300 but provides good information about the late Fikr. You can get the book from 304, Darbar Kalaan, JP Nagar, Amroha (UP).
