In Urdu, 19th Century is interpreted in binary oppositional manner with Sir Syed a pivotal point and other writers were considered either his extension or his rivals. The classic example of this generalization is Awadh Punch, a literary Journal which had a different attitude towards colonialism than Sir Syed's. The oversimplifications could only let the scholars to interpret its different authors in anti-Sir Syed perspective. This article attempts to analyze a text by Nawab Syed Muhammad Azad to underscore its distinct qualities and different approach towards colonial imprints on Subcontinent.
