Waris Shah's poetry

Islamabad, Oct 26: The manner in which Waris Shah has touched the harsh realities with sincerity of narrative is unequal and his poetry bears the characteristics of restlessness and tumult.

Shafqat Tanveer Mirza expressed these views while presiding over the 'National Literary Waris Shah Conference' arranged by Pakistan Academy of Letters here on Wednesday evening.

Iftikhar Arif, Chairman Pakistan Academy of Letters, Mansha Yad, Hameed Ullah Hashmi, Shaista Nuzhat and Tanveer Zaman also expressed their views while Hazrat Shaam conducted the proceedings.

Akhter Sheikh, Dilpazir Shad and Tanveer Zaman (Veer Sepahi) paid poetic tributes to Waris whereas Taimoor Afghani sang Heer to delight the audience, Sanaullah Khan played the flute.

Shafqat Tanveer Mirza said that Waris' poetry bears the characteristics of restlessness and tumult. The reason of his popularity is his public tone. He highlighted the social problems in a way that is uncommon. It is high time that new generation should research on his poetry and life and highlight its salient features. This is the right way to give Waris his poetic right, which he deserves.

Iftikhar Arif said that Waris Shah is not only the great poet of Punjab but also of Pakistan. It is our tragedy that though we know about the minor poets of foreign countries but we have very little knowledge of the major poets of our own languages. Our national literature remains incomplete unless we include the literature of other languages in our national stream.

Dr Shaista Nuzhat said that Waris Shah has done public, regional and universal poetry at the same time. He beautifully included common rituals and vernacular in his poetry. His Heer Ranjha is the perfect reflection of our society.

Mansha Yad said that any poet never equals the glory that Waris Shah has enjoyed in Punjab and subcontinent. He has deep perception and knowledge of human nature. His poetry has the elements of seriousness, romance and pathos at the same time. Undoubtedly, Waris was a great poet who has reflected all the aspects of human life in his poetry.

Hameed Ullah Hashmi said that Waris Shah's Heer has no parallel. He was a poet who was well versed with human nature. His poetic style is unique and novel. He was an encyclopaedia of Punjab. The News
