My Favourites by Shakeel Badayuni
Love your sad conclusion makes me weep. Wonder why your mention makes me weep. O how precious time now seems to me. Whenever talk of happiness I hear. My failure and frustration makes me weep. Every evening was, by hope, sustained. This evening's desperation makes me weep.
Shakeel Badayuni wrote some memorable romantic poetry but remained aloof from the big ideas of his time. The historic city of Badaun, in the Rohilkhand region, is known for three things: pirs, poets and pedas , in no particular order. The 13th-century Sufi saint Nizamuddin Auliya was born here and the dargahs , known as Chhoti Ziyarat and Badi Ziyarat, draw thousands from far and wide. But it is the poets and men and women of letters, really, who have put this otherwise nondescript dusty little town on the map. It was once said, only half in jest, that were you to toss a pebble at a busy cross-section anywhere in this city, it would be sure to hit a poet — or two. There was something about this little town beside the river Sot, a tributary of the Ganga that flows nearby, that sprouted adab from its nooks and crannies. But of all these, Shakeel Badayuni interests us as this year and month mark his th birth anniversary and, as with all centenaries, provides a good enough reason to look back on his poetic career.
I was reading about the Filmfare Awards last week, when I came across interesting information about the Hat-tricks in Filmfare Awards. That made me think of Shakeel Badayuni and his nd birthday in August. He was the only lyricist from that era to achieve a Hat-trick at the Filmfare Awards. Of course I will detail about it in the biography. He was born on 3rd August in Badayun, Uttar Pradesh.
IMMORTAL GHAZALS OF SHAKEEL BADAYUNI – PART I
Music and Cinema , Poems and Limericks. Why do I shed tears, year after year, on the day of the death anniversary of Shakeel the name means Handsome or Good Looking , today, 20th April? Is it because he died too young Having been born on 3rd Aug , he was only 53 when he died on this day in ? I am not even well versed in Urdu, not even a hundredth of what he was and yet I pray to God that before I die I should be able to write at least a couplet as good as he wrote. I call him the King of Irony since no one can write irony better than he did. Just one example:.
