Hum Na Hogy, Koi Hum Sa Hoga: Nasir Kazmi

Nasir Kazmi, the pioneer ghazal poet of Urdu language, passed away 49 years ago.

Nasir Raza Kazmi’s pen name is Nasir Kazmi. He was born on December 8, 1925 in Anbala and settled in Lahore after the partition of India.

The poetry of Nasir Kazmi, a contemporary poet called Mir Jadeed, is the best expression of subtle human emotions.

’بھری دنیا میں جی نہیں لگتا

جانے کس چیز کی کمی ہے ابھی‘

’اے دوست ہم نے ترک محبت کے باوجود

محسوس کی ہے تیری ضرورت کبھی کبھی‘

Many such timeless poems are the work of Nasir Kazmi. Following Mir Taqi Mir, he incorporated grief into poetry and his expression of grief became a reflection of the entire era.

’ہمارے گھر کی دیواروں پہ ناصرؔ

اداسی بال کھولے سو رہی ہے‘

Nasir Kazmi is one of the first architects of modern ghazal. Write a few essays and even poems, but their identity is based on ghazals, which have a great deal to do with mood, fluency and softness of tone.

’کون اچھا ہے اس زمانے میں

کیوں کسی کو برا کہے کوئی‘

His first collection, Kalam Berg Ne, was published in 1954 and gained popularity as soon as it came to light. His other poetry collections include ‘Pehli Barsh’, ‘Nishat-e-Khawab’, ‘Diwan’ and ‘Sur Ki Chhaya’.

The two collections ‘Diwan’ and ‘Pehli Barish’ consist only of ghazals on the basis of which the position and status of Nasir Kazmi is determined.

’اس شہر بے چراغ میں جائے گی تو کہاں

آ اے شب فراق تجھے گھر ہی لے چلیں‘

It was Nasir Kazmi’s unique and touching style of expression that made his speech more popular and beloved among the people today than ever before.

’کل جو تھا وہ آج نہیں جو آج ہے کل مٹ جائے گا

روکھی سوکھی جو مل جائے شکر کرو تو بہتر ہے‘

This eloquent speaker of Urdu literature passed away on March 2, 1972 due to cancer.

On the tombstone of Nasir Kazmi is written this common poem of his.

’دائم آباد رہے گی دنیا

ہم نہ ہوں گے کوئی ہم سا ہو گا‘
