Intikhab-e-Kalam: Sahir Ludhianvi

Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
This is a representative selection of the poems of Sahir Ludhianvi, the most popular Urdu poet of the Twentieth Century. Distrusted by many critics because of his popular appeal, Sahir Ludhianvi's work nevertheless had genuine literary merit and he was in his poems, as well as in his film lyrics, a champion of Human especially Woman's Rights. His poetry, although on every Urdu lover's lips, did not have the typical ingredients of popular poetry. Sahir Ludhianvi could state the truth in a straightforward manner, which under his touch became poetic.
