Product description


‘In a growing materialistic world where everything is for gains, emotions take a back seat. Parveen Talha, weaves a story using real people, stings you with an unforgettable emotion. Every time you need that sting pick up A Word Thrice Uttered.’ —Muzaffar Ali ‘Parveen Talha knows Lucknow and its culture like the back of her hand and her seamless narrative is a pleasure to read. Lovers of fiction and Lucknow will cherish this book.’ —Keki N. Daruwalla ‘Here is a collection of stories layered with hidden depths and nuances exploring the many dimensions of human nature: Not just of urban dwellers, but also of villagers, of innocent children and animals too. A Word Thrice Uttered is a Must Read.’ —K. K. Paul, Governor of Uttarakhand

About the Author

Parveen Talha’s earlier book Fida-e-Lucknow (a collection of short stories published by Niyogi Books), steeped in the textures and flavours of Lucknow, brought alive the city and its people for her readers.
In the current volume she has widened her canvas and made it more colorful, with characters from Lucknow and its adjoining towns and villages, playing vibrant roles on a stage shifting through time and space, portraying the rich history of the Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb. In this book her stories open many unknown pages of history and bring back forgotten memories of folklore, of not only Lucknow but the whole of Awadh. With the bygone era, the present times also come alive.
Parveen Talha belongs to an old family of Awadh. After retiring from the Civil Services as Director General of Customs she was Member of the Union Public Service Commission for five years. She lives now in Lucknow and spends time writing about her beloved city. Parveen Talha is involved with social service which includes working for animal rights. In the year 2000 she was given the President Award for Specially Distinguished Record of Service. In 2014, she was honoured with the Padma Shri for her contribution to the Civil Services.
