Raja Gidh by Bano Qudsia is a standout amongst the most generally perused and acclaimed Urdu books. Gidh is the Urdu word for a vulture and Raja is a Hindi equivalent word for a ruler. The name envisions the kingdom of vultures. Truth be told, parallel to the principle plot of the novel, a symbolic story of such a kingdom is described. The illustration of the vulture as a creature encouraging for the most part on the remains of dead creatures is utilized to depict the trespassing of moral breaking points forced by the general public or by the religion.Bano Qudsia has composed this novel drawing on the religious idea of Haraam and Halaal. Numerous perusers have a tendency to decipher Raja Gidh as a sermon, in which Bano Qudsia advances her hypothesis of inherited transmission of Haraam qualities. Regularly the plot is woven to backing the proposition. In the sentiment of numerous perusers and commentators she figures out how to persuade them that the compatibility of Haraam, be it monetary, good or passionate, brings about the weakening of an individual's typicality in some sense. She appears to recommend that the variation from the norm is exchanged hereditarily to the cutting edge.Separated from the above suggestion the novel has numerous social, enthusiastic and mental perspectives. The nostalgic portrayal of the chronicled Government College Lahore and of the Lawrence Garden Lahore lights upon the times of the seventies and eighties.
