Intikhab-e-Kalam: Akbar Allahabadi

Compiled by Rauf Parekh
This selection contains the best poetry of Akbar Allahabadi, who was the pioneer of humoristic Urdu poetry. Allahabadi not only used humour as a stylistic tool but also as an instrument to clearly understand social change. He conveys his message in a humorous way through his poetry. He used his poetry to awaken the sleeping masses like Allama Iqbal but his style was totally different from Iqbal’s.
