SHAFIQUR RAHMAN KI EK MAZAHIYA NAZM
The Following ‘azad’ poem is by one of my favourite writers, Shafiq-ur-Rehman and it comes from his book ‘LehreN’. The poem is actually a satire on modern day poets who write ‘azad’ Urdu poem by using all the ‘azadi’ they can get. The poem describes a situation of fighting cats in a garden. I hope it brings a smile to you just like it has been bringing smiles to me (Owaisi sahab) for the past 20 years.
I (Shakil Akhtar) am reading Shafiqur Rahman since the sixties, 50 years ago.
