Abstract

Tahira Iqbal is considered among the representative faction writers of our time. The themes of her fictions are unique and each theme is described in such a way that no aspect of it is left wanting .But the skill shown in code-mixing narration takes her art to new heights. She dictates dialogues through her characters that make them feel less fictional and more real. His legendary collection Ganji Bar is an amalgamation of beautiful colors from different themes and cultures. In it, the culture of Punjab, depiction of feudalistic society, women’s issues, as well as code- switching and code- mixing are also scattered on the pages. Though there are various topics in Ganji Bar, but the fluency of his pen on code-switching and code-mixing is amazing. Her grasp on language and expression is very strong. She has a wealth of words that she knows how to use them well and draws such a map while painting the scene keeping in view the situation that every color comes out with its full splendors.
