Musharraf Ali Farooqi. Between Clay and Dust is one such novel with characters central to our ethos and evolved culture. And the kind of emotion and culture that Farooqi captures through his characters is as time worn and age old as the very culture and heritage Farooqi draws his inspiration from. Based in the time right after partition and formation of Pakistan and India, a wrestler phelwan and a courtesan tawaif , connected nothing more than their shared joy of music, find themselves suddenly at the helm of professions whose funding was suddenly drying up as their patron princes disappeared. This novel, as Farooqi explained, is an exploration of how two people, set in their ways at the ages of something, make decisions to deal with the radically new situation they find themselves in, and how those decisions shape their fates. But even as exotic and romantic as the setting sounds, Farooqi denies that this is an exercise to revive affiliations with a past rich of deep culture and beautiful arts.

He vowed to remain celibate to achieve perfection in his art and shut his mind to thoughts of women.
