The Beam Magazine presents an afsana ‘Taqaaze’ by Muhammad Arfan.
Arfan is from Sialkot, and is in the Final Year of his graduation.

Taqaaze is the story of a teenager who is deeply affected by his parents’ marital problems. He is going through life as best as he can, until a girl (known only as ‘mohtarma’ throughout the story) comes along and leads him to his moment of enlightenment.
