Product Description

Living Souls: Memories is a glimpse into the lives of some 30 public and private personalities who walked with the author, S.M. Shahid, through his life and career. Shahid has had a long career in advertising and has authored several books on classical and film music and personalities. Most of the individuals portrayed in Living Souls are his contemporaries, who made their mark with distinction in their respective fields, irrespective of their level of fame. All these lives often overlapped with the life, career and interests of the author, thus making the book an autobiographical account as well. Also, indirectly, the narrative illustrates the social and cultural transformations that have taken place in Pakistan over the last 60 years or so. A major topic — though not the only one — expounded in the book, besides relationships, is Subcontinental classical music and its distinguished performers, as well as the minutiae of the ragas, gharanas and the inherent conventions and notes that differentiate one raga from the other.
