Kitne Pakistan? is a 2000 Hindi novel by Kamleshwar, a noted 20th-century Hindi writer. A pioneer of the Nayi Kahani (New Story) movement of the 1950s, and later a screenwriter for Hindi cinema, Kamleshwar’s novel, employing allegory and realism, deals with a vast expanse of human history, as it follows the rise of sectarianism, nationalism, Hindutva and communalism. Kitne Pakistan? casts doubts about the true motives of the people who make decision on behalf of and for common people, who throughout history have been bearing the brunt of their decision.

Good contant, great narration

you need to give little time to get involved, but if you like history and have rough knowledge of historical (recent, old and ancient) event you will love it.
you can grasps lots of insight around the historical event and how they shap the world we know today.
its basically about the mistak made by people on basis of there believe, greed and religions which divides people and make each other there enemy and making pakistan(metaphorical) all the time.
