RIP Faiz.

25 years after Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s death, I can only say this in remembrance: thank you Faiz sahib.

From the film Firaaq, Naseeruddin Shah reading one of my favourite poems by Faiz:

Faiz Ahmed Faiz reading his poem Aaj Bazaar Mein, followed by Nayyara Noor’s rendition of it:

And my own personal favourite couplet by Faiz:

“Ho chuka ishq, ab hawas hi sahi
Kiya karein, farz hai ada-e-namaz”

RIP Faiz.
