Google honours Manto with doodle on 108th birthday

Google honoured late Pakistani journalist and screenwriter Saadat Hasan Manto on the occasion of his 108th birthday with a doodle on Monday. The illustration, made by Lahore-based guest artist Shehzil Malik, features Manto scribbling something on a page with a pen in his hand. One of the finest fiction writers of  Soth Asia, Manto was born on May 11, 1912, in Samrala in the British Indian state of Punjab.

He matured and evolved as an author at a time when calls for the British to leave the subcontinent were gaining ground and with it, a rise in civil unrest. Manto wrote 22 collections of short stories, a novel, three collections of essays, over 100 radio plays, and more than 15 film scripts..
