Shauq Jallandhari – an introduction

Shauq Jallandhari (Full name Daniel Samuel) was born in 1930 in Jallandhar in Punjab and now settled in Jharkhand after spending a long period of his life in Chhattisgarh (once part of Madhya Pradesh) where he was the leading light of Urdu literature. In the last six decades of his poetic career, Shauq has received many awards and has been termed Pasban-e-Adab, Abru-e-Ghazal and Shaharyar-e-Ghazal. Muslim Saleem and urdunewsblog.wordpress.com, muslimsaleem.wordpress.com and http://www.khojkhabarnews.com pay tribute to him and wish him a long and healthy life. Here are some of his couplets:

 shauq-e-parvaaz men par jab se nikaale hamne

aasmaanoN meN kai chaand uchhale hamne

Ye meraa sar hai neze par uchhalo jis tarah chaho

ki har ek daur men yaaro bulandi par raha hun main

kal shab tere khayaal kii aisi havaa chalii

yaadon ka pur-bahaar shajar jhumta raha

ameer log kahaan milte hain Ghareebon se

samandaron ne nadi ki taraf naheen dekha

mujahid hain sadaqat ke hamen dar kya shahadat ka

saleeben dekh kar bhi apni jee-daari naheen jati

sunahre kal ki basharat hai mere she’ron men

ki maiN ne guzri sadi ki taraf naheen dekha

mujhse Khuda ke waste mazhab na poochhiye

jis dar ka huun main, uski bhikari hai zindagi
