Top 20 Shayari on Akhbaar

Newspapers serve as

the window to gaze into the happenings of the world, becoming a reflection of the world itself. Here are some of the choicest couplets in which the poet cleverly and skilfully uses newspapers as a metaphor to comment on mishappenings of the world, humans, and journalism itself.

jab top muqābil ho to aḳhbār nikālo

jab top muqabil ho to aKHbar nikalo

neither bow and arrow nor a sword do you require

pubish a newspaper when faced with cannon fire
