Selected poetry of Ahmed Faraz recited in his own voice. Ahmed Faraz, born Syed Ahmed Shah, was one of the most acclaimed modern Urdu Poets of the last century. Faraz was his pseudonym or 'takhallus'. Faraz, who has been compared with Faiz Ahmed Faiz, holds a unique position as one of the best poets of current times, with a fine but simple style of writting.
Faraz studied Urdu at the Peshawar University and later began teaching there. Outspoken about politics, he went into self-imposed exile during the Zial-Ul Haq era after he was arrested for reciting poems at a Mushaira criticizing the millitary rule. He stayed for six years in Britain, Canada and Europe before returning to Pakistan, where he was initially appointed Chairman Academy of Letter and later chairperon of the Islamabad based National Book Foundation for several years.
He was awarded the Hilal-e-Imtiaz in 2004, in recognition of his literary achievements. He returned the award in 2006 after becoming disenchanted with the Pakistan governmemt and its policies.
