Are the signs real? Does God talk to us? Can we murder the voice of conscience? The heaviest weight is that of a burdened soul – a weight crushing upon the shoulders of Abdur Rehman. Divulgence from his past kept haunting him during all his years abroad, and nothing could bring him solace until he returned to his homeland to find answers to his restiveness.
While on his mission of self-discovery, our Hero is met with a stark reality of life; Justice Demands Sacrifice.
Intertwined with love, passion, tradition and redemption, “Shroud of Honor” brings to its readers a heart-wrenching tale of a war within that is won yet lost all at once.

As a Pakistani, I am always on the lookout for stories from my own country, and people from my own country writing such stories because they are easy to relate to.
I am, however, disappointed by the authors I have read so far (with a few exceptions off course). There is raw talent in so many of them, but I fail to see a polished and sensibly edited version of their writings.
Sami Shah’s work is a good example of poor editing, and now I am going to add the work of Zeeshan Khan’s ‘Shroud of Honor’ in the same category.
While reading Shroud of Honor, the first thing which bothered me was grammatical errors (changing tense from past to present in the same sentence when it is not required etc.) granted that there were only two or three of them but for me, these kind of errors in a published piece of writing are unacceptable.

I started reading the story and it let my soul travel through the streets and trees as if it was I who was the protagonist. The author knits the story slowly and shows you a world as if he is holding your hand. This story perfectly covers all the elements required of a short story. It has a plot, dilogue, emotions and strong portrayal of characters.

weaving the plot while channeling local flavors in an old story with contemporary understanding is a difficult task to achieve. The story has all these elements. It would be justified to state that the story shows serious potential

Set in the cold valley of Quetta and the suburbs, Shroud of Honor is a tale of unfulfilled love, parental and societal pressure and the fight with one’s own demons. The story moves smoothly from a small village to England and back to that village.
The whole story gives one an insight of the local Pakhtun culture and its values along with the psychological picture of a young, studious lawyer who was ricocheting between the societal principals and his emotions; between wrong and right.
I appreciate the concept and graph of the story, had made me sunk to depth of emotions..Great work..
Looking forward to read more from you..

Mesmerizing description overcame the story.Over all good effort and characterization.
