LAHORE - The 11th death anniversary of renowned poet Munir Niazi is being observed today (Tuesday).

Munir Niazi was born in Indian city 'Hoshiyarpur' on April 19, 1928, but migrated to Sahiwal, a city of Pakistani Punjab after the partition. He did his Intermediate from a state-owned college of Bahawalpur and did his graduation from Dayal Singh College Lahore.

Niazi authored dozens of books comprising his Urdu and Punjabi poetry and also wrote famous songs and ghazals for the film industry.

His famous songs “Ik bewafa ka shehr hai aur hum hain dosto” for film Shaheed, “Kese kese log hamare Ji ko jalane aajate hain”, “Apni hasraton per aansoo baha ke so ja”, “Zinda rahen to kya hai jo mar jain hum to kya” still apply a soothing effect on the masses.

Munir Niazi breathed his last on December 26, 2006 but his poetry is keeping him alive even today.

One of his famous Punjabi ghazals is narrated for your reading pleasure:

kujh shauk si yaar fkiri da

kujh ishk ne dar dar rol ditta

kujh sajjna kasar na chhaddi si

kujh zeher raqeeban ghol ditta

kujh hijr firaq da rang charia

kujh dard mahi anmol ditta

kujh sarr gai qismat meri

kujh piar ch dhokha dhol ditta

kujh unj vi rahvan aukhian sn

kujh gal vich gham da tauq vi si

kujh shaher de lok vi zalim san

kujh sanoo maran da shauq vi si
