patthar ke jigar vaalo ġham meñ vo ravānī hai

ḳhud raah banā legā bahtā huā paanī hai

KHud rah bana lega bahta hua pani hai

koi patthar se na mare mere diwane ko

Nasir

From the very beginning, the preponderance of love has been very conspicuous in the writings of Nasir Kazmi (1923-1972). He has cited that, ‘Although love, poetry, and art have been in my blood since childhood, one or two beloveds have been quite instrumental in cultivation this taste’. Nasir fell in love for the first time at a mere age of 13 with a girl named Hamira and remembers his second love by the pseudonym Salma.
Nasir was born in Ambala but his parents had to move to Lahore due to partition where he eventually got a job in Radio Pakistan. Nasir was among the foremost who enlivened Lahore’s coffee house. There he was accompanied by literary figures such as Ahmad Mushtaq, Intizar Hussain, Jilani Kamran, etc. all of whom spent their time discussing the subtleties of Urdu language and literature.
