The dancing girls of Lahore inhabit the Diamond Market in the shadow of a great mosque. The twenty-first century goes on outside the walls of this ancient quarter but scarcely registers within. Though their trade can be described with accuracy as prostitution, the dancing girls have an illustrious history: Beloved by emperors and nawabs, their sophisticated art encompassed the best of Mughal culture. The modern-day Bollywood aesthetic, with its love of gaudy spectacle, music, and dance, is their distant legacy. But the life of the pampered courtesan is not the one now being lived by Maha and her three girls. What they do is forbidden by Islam, though tolerated; but they are gandi, "unclean," and Maha's daughters, like her, are born into the business and will not leave it. Sociologist Louise Brown spent four years in the most intimate study of the family life of a Lahori dancing girl. With beautiful understatement, she turns a novelist's eye on a true story that beggars the imagination. Maha, a classically trained dancer of exquisite grace, had her virginity sold to a powerful Arab sheikh at the age of twelve; when her own daughter Nena comes of age and Maha cannot bring in the money she once did, she faces a terrible decision as the agents of the sheikh come calling once more.

Lahore, First Published In 1993, Is Pran Nevile S Tribute To The Land Of His Birth. Grounded In Memory And Redolent With Nostalgia, Nevile S Reminiscences Transport The Reader Into The Heart Of Lahore As It Was In The 1930S And 40S A City Bustling With Activity Where People Coexisted Harmoniously, Unfettered By Considerations Of Religion, Region Or Caste. From The Riotous Seasonal Festivities Of Kite-Flying To Clandestine Love-Affairs Upon Rooftops, From Matinee Shows At The Cinema To Twilight Hours Spent Amongst The Bejewelled Dancing Girls Of Hira Mandi, Lahore Emerges As A City Of Mesmerizing Contradictions And Chaotic Splendour. The Author Underscores The Contrast Between Pre- And Post-Partition Lahore, And The Sense Of Pain, Loss And Longing For One S Homeland Experienced By The Displaced Millions In India And Pakistan Is Palpable. Evocative And Informative, Lahore Is At Once Social Commentary, Historical Documentation And Memoir.
