Learning that Qamar was responsible for a friend’s unhappiness, she ends the engagement and turns to Khalid, a Bengali student she meets at university. However, she has never stopped loving Tanvir, as becomes heartbreakingly clear to her and Khalid at the end. A moving portrayal of a sheltered young woman’s life, The Crooked Neem Tree also provides a vivid account of the political and social undercurrents and the growing unrest of the early sixties.
