It is a refreshing change to see an Urdu poetry audio book in a plethora of classics,crime and romance etc etc , all in the English language .
Ahmed Faraz was a towering talent throughout his life,but in his later life,of which this 1hour recording is from,he acquired a maturity and wisdom far more superior than his early college life stories testified to.
Talented no doubt he was,but in this collection his forte,The Ghazal( like a sonnet form with strict rhyme rhythm and metre),seems to be flying with wings.Whether it's the easily and economically worded SILSILAY WOH TOD GAYA SAB JAATAY JAATAY/VARNA ITNAY TO MARAASIM THHEY KE AATAY JAATAY to the technically more complicated,structurally,SUNNA HAI LOG USSAY NAZAR BHAR KE DEKHTAY HAIN/YEH BAAT SACH HAI TO HUM BHI USSKAY SHAHAR MAIN THHEHR KE DEKHTAY HAIN, the late Faraz marhoom leaves no stone unturned in even surprising those who have grown up listening to his poetry on Radio Pakistan.
To sum it up,this is a wonderful collection with a great voice narrating the poetry,and although a bit on the steep side,you'll be left asking for more.
P.S. a note to the publishers_why not get a collection of two or three books together in one collection and sell it at 2£ extra cost than this single book...?
