Chand Chehra Sitara Aankhen

First published in 1974 this fabulous book of poetry from Obaidullah Aleem(1939-1997) was an instant success with young people because of its very lucid vocabulary and the emotional tenderness. Obaidullah Aleem was comfortable with genres of Ghazals and Nazms both, and he so effortlessly has written the most passionate and profound emotions which almost create an awe in the readers and one is so blissfully fascinated while reading this majestic work. And what a beauty is the title poem, always remembered, always admired and always loved.


  1. hmm....I never purchased a poetry book...may be they require more sensitivity than I have....

    Or may be more sense on the subject....

    But I always admire and listen to the good poetry whenever I get a chance....

    Thanks for the introduction.

  2. Thinking, Poetry is a symbolized language of emotions and one only understands it by reading it, so why not this be your first book of poetry!
