Hi all,

Here is the article I promised. It appears in a book called 'Stars from another sky - The Bombay film world of the 1940's' by Saadat Hasan Manto (Translated into English by Khalid Hasan). The book is a collection of articles written by Manto between 1948 and 1954 and appeared in a book titled ' Ganjay Farishtey' and has articles on Ashok Kumar, Shyam, Nargis, Naseem and others from that era.

(I have attached the scanned images as 50% of their original size - if too small I can put the original size up)

Ummer - would you be able to use OCR on these and send me the text? (or suggest some good software that I could get!)

Thank you very much for the article, Jamal. bow.gif This is the complete English translation of Manto’s famous book ‘Noor Jehan Surror Jehan’. I think it was included in his book ‘Ganjey Farishtey’ and also published as a separate book. I have the original Urdu version of this book. BTW do you have Shukat Hussain Rizvi’s notorious book “Noor Jehan Ki Kahaan Meri Zubaani” compiled by Munir Hussain?

No probs guys - it is always a pleasure.

Thanks for the Info Inaam bhai - I had started searching for the 'Noor Jehan Suroor Jehan' book and I had it all along !! As for the Rizvi one, my grandfather has it but he needs to find it. He gets quite tired these days so does not venture upstairs much. As I can't read Urdu it is an almost impossible task for me to try to look for it - but just had a thought, my wife can read Urdu so I could get her to help me !

Optical Character Recognition.
That is when U scan a page of a magazine for eg and save it as a jpg, U then run this OCR software and it will read the letters in the pic and create a text or word file for U. These sw are not very reliable and make lots of errors esp if the font is fancy. Often in may be read as m and many such errors. Still much easier to correct those than type the whole script! smile1.gif

Hello Inaam,
It comes free with most scanners. Mine is an expensive scanner, it can also scan negatives and 35mm slides and convert them into pictures (positives).
