Sultana, a small town prostitute, migrates to the city with dreams in her eyes. With time however she goes about her tactical ways of seducing people, she always seems to miss her targets. Her business starts going down and her loneliness gets intensely objectified in her desire for the 'Black Salwar' that she needs to complete her ensemble for Muharram.
This has been translated from the original story "Kali Salwar" written by Saadat Hasan Manto. Saadat Hasan Manto was the most widely read and the most controversial short-story writer. He was known to write about the hard truths of society that no one dared to talk about.
