Muhammad Farooq Malik is a professor of English at the University of Central Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan, now going through twenty sixth year of his association with the discipline. Professor Malik has delved into writing English poetry and short stories. His other significant undertaking has been the translation of the selected Urdu poetic compositions into English with an intention to optimally preserve the finesse and flavor of Urdu poetry. The three poets whose work is selected for such an undertaking are Asadullah Khan Ghalib, Sir Muhammad Iqbal and Faiz Ahmed Faiz.
Prof. Malik with his 22 years of service as military officer shows a peculiar kind of literary adventurism in his writings, too. The Marital Muddle falls into the same category - venturing into the minefield of married life and learning to survive.
Prof. Malik is fond of spending time in the wild.
