Faiz AHMAD FAIZ (part 2)

As the cell’s slit grows dim

My heart imagines your hair studded with stars,

And as the fetters become visible,

Dawn, I imagine, must have lit up your face.

Part 3

If you look at the city from here, you’d realize

That in the entire crowd, there is nobody

Really dignified,

Nobody truly sagacious;

Every young man’s neck in a noose,

Every woman, a branded slave.

Translated by AsmaIFtikhar

      i always admire personalities like faiz ahmad faiz because he was not only a stunning poet with true beliefs but a poet with the vast knowledge and wisdom. if i'm not wrong he did master in English and Arabic...even today very few people in the world have achieved this hallmark. NO PARALLEL faiz sahab!! how educated and cultured these people were. Faiz sahab contributed alot to the urdu literature and leaves a memorable impact on the history with his sublime personality.He was the man of history!...finally Asma did a great job in disseminating the sound message of faiz sahab, WELL DONE ASMA AND THANKS TO YOU!
