Poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz's works will come alive in the city on July 30, well known ghazal singer Jaswinder Singh along with celebrated Urdu poet Dr Rahat Indori will showcase some of Faiz's finest works in the city. The two artists are here on invitation from Ludhiana Sanskritik Samagam.
Jaswinder Singh is known for his soulful music in films like Saath Saath and Arth to name a few. Faiz himself needs no introduction specially for the people who are lovers of ghazal. A staunch marxist and a leading member of the Progessive Writers Movement, Faiz started out his career as a writer of love poetry, but the harsh realities of life compelled him to bring in larger social issues.
Jaswinder Singh said, "Faiz is a very progressive poet. His verses are very thought provoking and meaningful."
