Children's questions reflect a philosophical subtlety that is often not fully appreciated. Their stock question: "what's that"? can be equated with Plato's own presumed stock question: "what is x"? (x=justice, virtue, good, love, etc.). As well, their other nagging question: "why"? can be construed as a quest after immediate and ultimate reasons and clarity in the construction of their own edifice of knowledge. These and their other philosophical approaches to their common experiences are discussed in this book.

A collection of classic, yet shockingly contemporary, short stories set in the vibrant world of mid-century Bombay, from one of India’s greatest writers. Arriving in 1930s Bombay, Saadat Hasan Manto discovered a city like no other. A metropolis for all, and an exhilarating hub of license and liberty, bursting with both creative energy and helpless despondency. A journalist, screenwriter, and editor, Manto is best known as a master of the short story, and Bombay was his lifelong muse. Vividly bringing to life the city’s seedy underbelly—the prostitutes, pimps, and gangsters that filled its streets—as well as the aspiring writers and actors who arrived looking for fame, here are all of Manto’s Bombay-based stories, together in English for the very first time. By turns humorous and fantastical, Manto’s tales are the provocative and unflinching lives of those forgotten by humanity.
