I came across his work while reading and researching other contemporary Urdu Pakistani poets. But unlike Insha Jalib does not dabble in satire and subtleties. He is more like Paash rastoor grabs hold of the truth about the oppressor by its neck.

He is straight-forward and utterly unafraid. I attempted a translation of his most popular poem which is also pretty representative of his work and approach. Deep jis ka mehllaat hi mein jaley, Chand logon ki khushiyon ko le kar chaley, Wo jo saaye mein har maslehat ke paley, Aisey dastoor ko, Sub-he-be-noor ko, Main nahein maanta, Main nahein jaanta.

Main bhi khaaif nahein takhta-e-daar se, Main bhi Mansoor hoon, keh do aghyaar se, Kyun daraatey ho zindaan ki deevar rastoor, Zulm ki baat ko, Jehl ki raat ko, Main nahein maanta, Main nahein jaanta. Tum nay loota hai sadyon hamaara sukoon, Ab na hum per chalega tumhara fasoon, Charaagar dardmandon ke bantey ho kyun?

Tum nahein charaagar, Koi maane magar, Main nahein maanta, Main nahein jaanta. September 24, — 8: You have picked up one of the best poems of Jalib and have done a good job in bringing out his spirit of defiance against the then dictator Ayub Khan.


About The Writer

It was a long time ago in early s when a friend from Jamia Milia shared with me the audio cassette of recorded Jalib recitation of his poems. It was greatly inspiring for many of us middle class youth in elite institue like IIT Delhi, who were idealist dreamer of new secular habb socialist society.

Some of his words still ring hauntingly loud in my ears, in a far land Sweden. Kahan qatil badalte dastolr Faqat chehre badalte hain Hum ne ahle dard ka raaz aakhir pa liya Jalib Ke deep uunche makanon mein Hamare khoon se jalte hain. January 30, — 8: Both Faiz Ahmad Faiz and Jalib are the two towering poets of defiance.
