Intikhab-e-Kalam: Zehra Nigah

Compiled by Asif Farrukhi

Zehra Nigah who initially regaled the audience at mushairas soon matured and turned to more serious themes and more innovative forms, and produced powerful poems on themes such as terrorism, globalization, street children, and drug abuse. She also wrote long poems dealing with death; imbuing them with a softness her early lyrics did not have. She is a poet who is feminine without being feminist, gender issues finding a commensurate space in the vast canvas of her concerns. This volume contains a representative selection of her poems.
