Idgah is a Hindustani story written by the Indian author Munshi Premchand. It is one of the most well-known stories of Premchand.
Synopsis: The story depicts a very poor boy (4–5 years of age), Hamid, who lives with his Dadi (grandmother) Amina. Hamid, the protagonist of the story, has lost his parents. His aged grandmother Amina fulfills their daily needs by doing some needle work for others. His Dadi (grandmother) has told him that very soon his father and mother will return home with lots of money, sweets and gifts for him from the house of Allah. He is full of hope and happily awaiting that day.
The story begins on Eid (festival) morning, poor Hamid doesn’t have new clothes or shoes like other children. He has only three paise (very little money) as Idi for the festival, to spend in a fair. His friends spend their pocket money on rides, candies and buying beautiful colourful clay toys (Bhishti, lawyer, policeman and a milkmaid). Hamid dismisses this as a waste of money for momentary pleasure. While his friends are enjoying themselves, he overcomes his temptation and goes to a hardware shop to buy a chimta (pair of tongs). He remembers how his Dadi burns her hand while cooking rotis (Indian flat bread).
The story ends on a touching note when Hamid gifts the chimta to his Dadi. At first she is shocked and annoyed by his stupidity that instead of eating anything or buying any toy at the fair, he has purchased a chimta. But then Hamid reminds her of how she burns her fingers daily, while making rotis. She bursts into tears at this and blesses him for his kindness.
