On Pakistan Day - 23rd March 2010

For those of us who emigrated from Pakistan and have a deep felt love and nostalgia for what was left behind, the poetry strikes a special cord.

The following poetry was originally dedicated to one of our great Urdu poets, Ahmed Faraz sahib who passed away on 25 August 2008.

A dove between India and Pakistan. In his latest double CD "Paigham-e-Muhabbat" composer Muzaffar Ali, who has brought so much pleasure in the last two decades, included ‘O des aane wale Bataa'. This nazm by Akhtar Sheerani & Ahmed Faraz is beautifully sung by Abida Parveen.

Faraz sahib 25 August 2008 ko Allah ko pyare ho gaye.
