About the Book

The Marital Muddle is a poetic peep into the wonders and wiles about the married life. It is an overview of the marital mileage with its countless events and episodes to which almost every married person can relate and find reason to relish or ruminate in a very personal way. Marriages are inherently fault prone since domestic battle-fields heat up into action on minor infringements or even a suspicion of an infringement. Marital Muddle with its contents is likely to infuse acceptance and tolerance for the multifarious fall outs of the marital bouts. This modest compilation is a source of encouragement for the prospective spouses, a consolation for those who are in the heat of the battle and a retrospective joy for the veteran warriors reminiscing the battles of the days gone by. This literally is the one breeding battle ground meant to stay active and relevant. Let the world relish the groom doom boom paradox!

About the Author

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.
