I recently got hold of Ibn-e-Insha’s poetry book titled ‘dil-e-wehshi’. Once I started reading it was hard to put it down.
This book is Ibn-e-Insha’s third poetry collection. His first collection ‘chand nagar’ was published in 1955. Second collection was ‘is basti ke ik kooche mein’ which was published in 1976. Unfortunately he did not live long after that and left us forever on January 11, 1978. His third poetry book ‘dil-e-wehshi’ was published by his family in 1985. It contains his unpublished work from his ‘bayaaz’ and that is what makes this book so special. Following are some some selections from ‘dil-e-wehshi’.
