Adil Najam

Aitizaz Ahsan, flaws and all, has become the voice of the moment. The voice of a generation. This voice, which has become my voice and, maybe, yours speaks more passionately in the idiom of poetry than in the idiom of prose. It speaks most passionately in this poem – Kal, Aaj and Kal – that reflects his thoughts on current issues after his recent release.

Listen for yourself. And listen again. It is worth pondering upon. Worth thinking about.

Aik muhazzab quom ko, daikho, khod hum nay badnaam kiya hai

Part II here:

There are so many thoughts, so many lines, so many ideas, so many metaphors here that I would love to comment upon. But poetry is better listened than dissected. So listen, friends. And ponder yourself. Share your thoughts. But even if you choose not to, please, do think.

Note: Thanks to the various readers – 6 and counting – who have alerted me to this.
