Dec 04, Urdu letters: “Searching beauty through Art and Literature– Sheikh Ayaz.”

Echoes of a dead man, and more than that, of a man who once lived.

ShAyaz_mi

  • “Wahan ki hawa me meri jawani ki sargoshian haen. Pattay pattay me kisi mehboob ki goonj hae. Wahan ki lehar lehar, sitaray sitaray, darakht darakht, me meray beet aur geet bikhray paray haen. Bairaj ki ba’en janib do nehron ke darmiyan rasta hae, jis ki dono taraf imli aur sheesham ke darakht haen. Jab chaand nehar ke paani me tukray tukray hojata hae, tou lehrain taizi se ye tukray le kar dornay lagti haen. Mujhay hamesha yun mehsoos hota hae ke “Bakes”(Sindhi aur Siraiki ke ek sha’air) ki udaas rooh Sadh belay se ghoom kar wahan aa kar ruk jati hae aur apni piyari kaafi gungunay lagti hae: “Aey rana, wapis lout aa, ab tou subah honay wali hay, teray baghair ye kaak mehal weerana hae.”

    • شکریہ ثروت! آپ کی کمی محسوس ہوئی تھی۔۔۔ خوشی ہوئی آپ کو یہ پڑھنا اچھا لگا، میں خود ان شاعر کی صلاحیتوں سے خاصا متاثر ہوئی ہوں۔
