Insaan is a long poem in the genre of epic by Jamiluddin Aali, the poet of jeevay jeevay Pakistan and aye watan ke sajeelay jawano. This poem is compiled of 10000 lines but only 7800 has been published rest has been withheld on the request of the poet that those must be published after his death!

This gigantic work started in 1955 and was first published in 2007. The book has 32 parts and starts with Iqbal's poem Insaan,

This is a very unusual book of poetry where the poet is continuously asking and posing question and he knows there is no definite answer for them only more and more remorse and new set of unanswered questions is the only outcome, but then one must keep on questioning, you never know which one succeeds in being answered.
