Har ghazal ustaad say likhwa ke lay aata hoon main
Haan galay kay zor par usko to bas gaata hoon main

gaana mera jantay hain saamay har ek bazm kay

MF Husain – poetic tribute by Ahmad Ali Barqi Azmi

Maqbool Fida Husain, 95, the renowned contemporary and progressive artist who put India on the world’s art map, died today in London’s Royal Brompton hospital, after a month of illness. Husain died of a heart attack at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London.
Considered to be the pioneer of Indian avant garde, Husain has been both adulated and hated. A Padma Shree, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan awardee, Husain first came into controversy when his first ‘anti-Hindu’ work, nude depictions of Indian goddesses, was published in 1996. Death threats by Hindu fanatics resulted, as did legal petitions by BJP and RSS and vandalism of Husain’s art exhibitions. Husain finally had to leave the country in self-imposed exile after the controversial Bharatmata painting of 2006.. Here is a poetic tribute to MF Husain by Ahmad Ali Barqi Azmi.

Article on Atif Javed Atif’s ghazal shaistaa….(posted by Muslim Saleem on June 7, 2010)

DAUGHTERS OF CHINA By Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem: English translation by Dr. Shahzad Rizvi

DAUGHTERS OF CHINA By Dr. Saleem Wahid Saleem: Translation by Dr. Shahzad Rizvi

(see also: saleemwahid.blogspot.in  for more)

Daughters of China
Their beauty like the first ray of dawn
Their faces symbols of valour and brilliance
Their shapely bodies slung with rifles
Whether it be the parade ground or the battlefield
They are single-minded about their objective
Beauty of tresses or slim waist has no meaning for them
They have no use for silk or finery
They honour mountains and deserts by treading on them
They are symbols of perfection and souls of action
Their love is duty and they are fond of their uniforms
Though believed to be members of the “delicate gender”
They conduct themselves like the bravest of men

The Battle of Life – a poem by Dr. Shahzad Rizvi

I was hung over this morning
From life’s assault.
I could hardly move an emotion, a thought.
Lovers, beasts, spouses came and tried
To rid me of this affliction
But nothing helped.
Like a stifled desire
I lay there motionless
While the world criss-crossed me,
Sneering, jeering,
Branding me misguided, misanthrope, misfit.
Invective missiles flew around me
My shameless body repelled most of them
But one managed to puncture my fragile skin
My heart splattered all over the universe
Creating Rorschach blots of pain and frustration.

I had thought my reason for being was my own happiness,
My life was a gift to me from Nature,
I could do whatever I wished with this precious possession.
But that is not what the self-appointed life-planners believed.
They went to work, and when they were done,
Nothing but a speck of dust was left.
