Patrotic Song: Poet of 'Dil Dil Pakistan' in search of help
LAHORE - Pakistanis are having a strong bond with their homeland and since 1947 many artists have been expressing their patriotism with beautiful prose and literature. As 14th August just passed two days ago and the whole country was celebrated Jashn-e-Azaadi with zeal.

The independence celebration is being completed with the background music of national songs and the first thing that clicks your mind is iconic national song Dil Dil Pakistan - the poetic lyrics of which we all remember by heart - but did we ever give a thought about who wrote such powerful lyrics? Sadly, we did not.

The singers of the song Junaid Jamshed and director Shoaib Mansoor gained immense popularity and it made their band reach the heights of fame across the globe but unfortunately, the poet of the legendary song, Nisar Nasik, did not even get his due share of recognition and suffers miserable living conditions in the outskirts of Rawalpindi.

The needy lyricist is reportedly losing his eyesight and memory but he still remembers each and every word of the song by heart. This shows how deep-rooted his love for Pakistan is.

The next time you listen to Dil Dil Pakistan, do remember the source behind this wonderful patriotic song. The government should help deserving artists and we should also contribute according to our financial condition.

Many other artists, singers, and poets have been treated like Nisar and the common man is kept in the complete dark about them.
