'...Main Us Ki Khatir Ye Sari Dunya Bhi Chhorr Jata', Munir Niazi remembered on 11th death anniversary
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
