FAIZ AHMAD FAIZ

Faiz Ahmad Faiz


Recognizes as the greatest Urdu poet after Iqbal.Who uses his poetry to champion the cause of socialistic humanism; love does remain its leitmotif.Here i would like to share the translation of his  few beautiful verses.



It is I alone, who would not seek favors,

Although she is even willing to oblige

Tell the night of separation to hold itself a while,

For the heart now aches less and

Remembrance too is faint.

Asmaiftikhar

      Really Faiz Ahmed Faiz is the legend poet of famous Pakistan poets like Ghalib , Allama Iqbal and many other...but It makes me much heart when we don't respect these legends (see some of Faiz messages used by our youth in mobile)it breaks the heart as we are spoiling our own legend...

      First I am thinking of not to comment this here you can deny this also if you not like....but it is fact...and we can't deny this reality...that we have not given the right place what Faiz Ahmed Faiz have...

      Really amazing,

      But since the real taste of urdu or hindi poems or shayari can be felt only when they are presented in the original language. So can you transliterate the same verse in the following comment...please? I could not understood the complete meaning of the same.

      Please write in English, but the wording should be in urdu; for example, Dil kehta hai ki Raat abhi baki hai...baat abhi baki hai...

      thanks

      Faiz Ahmed Faiz - I am maniac for his poems :)

      No doubt that this verse has its own charm in the original language. However, even the translated one is too good to avoid the praise it deserves. Well done, Asma.
