Badesi Mizzah

Yes you are right! This is Urdu, and not English.

Badesi Mizzah by Col. Muhammad Khan.

A translation of some calassic English Fun, which I would never have beleived to be one if col. himself would not have mentioned it to be a transaltion in the preface of the book, as it seems so real. Its not a phrase-wise translation, rather translation of the soul of the stories, as the col. says in preface, it makes the reader feel comfortable to read about thingz he knows off. So, rather than talking about John and Tom, he talks about Salman & Zulfiqar, he talks about Peshawar More instead of mentioning Squares of London. And the style has proven itself. A great read!
