Idgah (Paperback) Price: Rs. 29

Idgah is a Hindu-Urdu novel that tells the touching story of a poor boy named Hamid. Hamid is a 5-year-old orphan who lives with his grandmother Amina. He lives under the false hope that his parents will return one day with plenty of money and goodies for him. The story, narrated from Hamid’s perspective, begins on the day of eid, an important festival in the religion of Islam. Hamid, like any other 5-year-old, longs for sweets, toys, and games on the occasion of the festival. But, being poor, he cannot afford any of those. Instead, he ends up doing something kind for his grandmother out of love. The book is filled with glimpses into an era gone by, and takes the readers through a host of bitter-sweet human emotions. It was published in 1933. It has since been adapted for theatre, and even for a Kathak performance.


Premchand was an Indian writer known for his contribution to Hindu-Urdu literature. Some of his works include Gaban (Hindi), Nirmala (Hindi), and Soje Vatan. He was born as Dhanpat Rai on July 31, 1880, near Benares, India. He wrote several novels, short stories, biographies, plays, and essays. He adopted the pseudonym ‘Premchand’ after his novel Soje Vatan was banned during the British rule. His writing was marked by realism, and often highlighted the lives of the poor and the urban middle-class. The author also wrote about social customs and topics to create national public awareness about such issues. Premchand died on October 8, 1936.
