The story of a village administrator, Thakur Udal Singh, who decides to raise a blue bull to protect his ill-gained riches and thereby creates a reign of terror, The Beast, published originally in Urdu as Numbedar ka Neela, is a remarkable feat in literature. Beyond that, it is a fable of our troubled times, packing murder-mystery, puzzle, and myth into a hundred pages laced with humour. Syed Muhammad Ashraf's contemporary classic is brilliantly translated by Musharraf Ali Farooqi, author of The Adventures of Amir Hamza, Tilsm-i-Hoshruba and The Story of a Widow.
