This anthology of Ali Sardar Jafri's Urdu poetry translated into English by Bidar Bakht and Kathleen Grant Jaeger, covers the entire span of his writing career, I.e., 1943-1997. Reflecting the evolution of his thoughts, ideology, flights of fancy, a free soaring spirit, seven different segments of the book are a tribute to how the muse has fired the inert recesses of this passionate poet.
These verses are a live, provocative document, poetically depicting the survival of the human spirit in the face of callous inhumanity. Compassion and sensitivity are the needs of the hour as the poet manifests these virtues through his lyrical poems with resilient new expressions.
