Abstract: This research paper aims to explicate how an individual’s ideas are profoundly affected through the social encounters in one’s life. These encounters can lead the way for unanticipated realizations and an out-and-out change in one’s perceptions and personality. Umera Ahmad has depicted this change in her novella Shehr- e- Zaat (City of Self). The protagonist, Falak Sher Afghan undergoes numerous realizations. From a world of materialism and glamour, she moves to the other end of the spectrum by immersing herself in the love of God. The research paper is an attempt to answer some pertinent questions such as, what drives Falak to renounce materialistic pleasures and adopt a simple and sagacious life? What does she make of all the encounters throughout her life? Are there other characters too, who undergo major transformations? If yes, who are they? And why do they change? This paper has tried to explore these questions in depth and tried to find answers to them.
Keywords: Umera Ahmad, Shehr-e-Zaat, Falak Sher Afghan, materialism, spirituality, fiction, admiration
