This selection contains the best poems of Nazir Akbarabadi, a poet unique in the tradition of Urdu poetry. While mainstream Urdu poets favoured the ghazal or masnavi, poetic forms having their origin in the Middle East, Nazir Akbarabadi
wrote continuous and coherent poems, drawing upon the Indian locale for his themes. Being an exponent of nature, festivals, and the common folk, Nazir Akbarabadi was hailed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century as one
of the foremost poets of Urdu.
