Poetry

This book is a translation of Aahung - a collection of Majaz's best and most popular ghazals. It is a sincere and whole-hearted attempt to convey (to non-Urdu knowing readers) through translation the intensely romantic poetry of Asrarul Haq Majaz, the popular and enigmatic, young poet who died a tragic death. Aahung however is just not a collection of romantic verse rather it throws light on the fervour of the youth of newly independent India. It is also filled with patriotic fervour and dreams for the future of the country. The book is an important testimony to the progressive writers movement and their aspirations towards creating a progressive, just and liberated society. Many have rightly compared Majaz to John Keats, the British poet, because of the uncanny resemblance in their short, tragic lives and in their worship of beauty.
