This volume comprises a collection of mystical stories from Punjab that forces the now ordinary and practical meaning of love to change into its illogical and irrational self it once used to be. An exposition of Sufi philosophy, each story possesses both the calm and the storm of true love, a love that consumes the body and the heart, a love that goes beyond all common sense, a love better known as junoon (intense passion), that finally culminates in ibaadat (worship) and the love of God.
From Sohni-Mahiwal to Heer-Ranjha, Sassi-Punnu to Mirza-Sahiban, Harish Dhillon succinctly encapsulates the rich cultural and literary heritage Punjab is so famously synonymous with. Love Stories from Punjab brings alive the forgotten magic of folklore that will tug at all the right strings of the heart, once again.
Drama, romance, tragedy and history are interwoven in the form of an exquisite tapestry.
