Novel by Mirza Hadi Ruswa in Malayalam, translated by A K Abdul Majeed. First published in 1899, it is considered the first Urdu novel by many.

'Umrao Jaan Ada' tells the story of a courtesan and poetess by the same name from 19th century Lucknow, as recounted by her to the author. The novel is known for its elaborate portrayal of mid-19th century Lucknow, its decadent society, and also describes as a subtext, the moral hypocrisy of the patriarchal system of the times, where Umrao Jaan also becomes the symbol of a nation that had long attracted many suitors who were only looking to exploit her.
