Description

Urdu poetry is a universe of lustrous pictures that presents in words of varying hue, a delicacy of thought, and depth of meaning. Every word, every simile and metaphor bears within itself a whole world of meaning, and thus is the virtue of a great language that represents a celebrated civilisation. This is the kind of poetry that can be rendered easily into English without hurting its poetic quality because it is free of the unnecessary ornamentation common to all Eastern poetry. Like most Indians of the current age, Idrak Bhatty too has been nurtured in both Eastern and Western cultures. The accent of these poems has its own distinctive identity; their rhythm and idiom reflecting contemporary awareness. The audio CD includes a selection of poignant ghazals recited by Tom Alter, Uday Chandra and Chandar Khanna.

Foreword by Qurat-ul-Ain Haider.
Illustrations by Pritam Bhatty.
With audio CD: Tom Alter, Uday Chandra and Chandar Khanna.
