Shame New Edition by Salman Rushdie is set in a fictitious town called Q. Although the story deals with the relationship between two very important political figures, General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Rushdie disguises the names as General Raza Hyder and Iskander Harappa.

The plot deals with three sisters, Bunny, Chunni, and Munnee. All three sisters pretend to give birth to Omar Khayyam. But neither the reader nor the characters are aware of who Omar’s real parents are.

Growing up, Khayyam learns about hypnosis. An impish kid, Khayyam is allowed to leave Q in order to pursue his education. Under the tutelage of Eduardo Rodriguez, he trains to become a doctor.

The plot of Harappa and Hyder is revealed through Khayyam who encounters both of them. The story deals with themes like truth, shame and shamelessness, heritage, and parentage. The plot has various violent episodes which serve as the author’s critique of Pakistan’s political structure.
