Dr. Azam Kuraivi is one of the famous fiction writers of the early period when Urdu short story began. He did not only confirm the tradition of Pram Chand but also provided strong and stable identities. He also gave a new and unique creative spirit to Urdu fiction. We can find clear pictures of social life, culture, and politics, religious and ethical values in his stories. He also focuses on the social life around us as truth as social consultation. Specifically, they represent eastern traditions. His fiction also has a good historical and cultural aesthetic sense. These concepts of the early twentieth century are very important and remarkable. Kuraivi's short stories use simple language, natural style and sweetness of phrases. All these features make his stories very popular. We can find a beautiful blend of Persian and Hindi diction in his short stories, which is missing in other Urdu short story writers. So, we can say that he is a unique writer so far as beauty of language is concerned.
