Pyar ka Pehla Sheher” is one of the most interesting romantic Novels. It is a story about pure and innocent love. The author tries to delineate two points through this novel. First, anyone can fall in love since it is the rite of everyone. Love has never reserved itself for beautiful or physically fit people rather everyone falls in love once or many times in their life. It just happens and sees no boundary, country, nationality, etc. Second, in today’s world, we define a handicapped person as “a person who is either physically or mentally unfit”, whereas in the author’s point of view everyone whether he/she realizes it or not at some point in his life becomes a handicap. We all desire to mold life in our own way but most of the time constraints such as culture, poverty, hunger, family, education, job, etc make us handicap and we are bound to make tough and unwanted decisions.
It is a story about a Pakistani tourist “Sunan”, who on this way to France meets “Paskal”, a handicapped (lame) yet beautiful French young lady. Paskal seems to be in the complex of inferiority due to her disability to properly walk. Sunan decides to spend some time with Paskal and help her in getting back to normal life again. They spend some time together and soon they both realize that they are deeply in love with each other. Paskal on getting true love becomes ready to sacrifice everything for Sunan and now Sunan due to the cultural and social constraints needs to make a decision.
