Does anyone know of modern writing on natural disasters, particularly earthquakes or floods, in Urdu? Either fiction or auto/biographical.
Thanks very much for your help!

There is one nazm by Nazir Akbarabadi, called Bhuchal Nama, describing the earthquake in Agra during early 19th c. He has also written on other natural occurrence such as Aandhi (Hurricane).
Hope it helps,
