Hiding from the phony world, there is another world which is lying in our heart.., an affluent world, the world.. where all the creatures looking for love based eternity. But only those people, who have faith on reality can find that lovely world.
he people, who have strong faith in God can enjoy the true reality first and then themselves being part of truthfulness. Here, ability counts a lot. I mean What I saw and read through the poetry of Afzal Shauq, I blindly believed that he is a true humanist.
By having reality of faith, one can believe that life is nothing except the humanity to care as Mr. Afzal Shauq in his poetry repeatedly has meant for.
I am quite sure about the fact that the readers, who are searching for the fulfillment of day dreams can enjoy the poetry of Afzal Shauq because he seemed to be a global poet, with more than 400 poems, which have been translated into almost all international languages including Arabic. He is a peace wisher and I have a lot of respect for him being his poetry friend and fan as well.
Afzal Shauq is looking for a peace and also dreaming for a life.. fully well heeled on humanitarian ground. He might be exploring a peaceful world, where all the people live in happy way.., where there is no feeling of resentment.. where there is a global intention for caring humanity in true ways.
I also believe that a peaceful life is the full moon light which makes the darkened nights bright. Peace leads to happiness and it is also caused for generating friendly smiles as my favorite poet Afzal Shauq says in many of his poems.
Peace is a humane value of respect, which promotes the humanity in society. It makes longer relationship that is operating harmoniously. And even the best example of peace is Afzal Shauq’s humanity love based ideas .
Afzal Shauq added in one of written interview that one day he said to his inner egoistic man "I want to be a great man " but after traveling all over the world he knew that the all living all around the world are looking same.. no difference are there. So came to conclusion that “despite change in colors, cultures, regions, languages and taboos .. all the people look like the children of Adam’s family” . After unveiling the above facts, he mentioned ahead that if the people are same, then what makes them away from each others? So he started to find out the true answer but according to his SAY, he being a poet put a lot of questions in front of worldwide readers to think about.. to chase for the missing reality.
Any way when he got a global fame, being a peace lover, he got the answer regarding greatness which belongs to the human’s behavior in terms of intentions like “respect for all”, “care for humanity”, “facing reality”, ”behaving as children of Adam’s family”, “promotion of friendly relationship” and “heart to heart.. soul to soul love”.
Afzal Shauq is right to say that the real meaning of greatness belongs to satisfaction of self-ego .. not to subduing others.
Afzal Shauq is quite famous .. even in Arabic world for his extra ordinary humanity cares but he never be proud of it and keeps in-touched with all fellow men. It isn't the question of his recognition or the fame, actually it’s his creation of great ideas, knowing a fellow man's mind, which might be recalling in the next generation which has to come yet.
Above all my respect to him, I say the creation of his ideas are enough impressive and interesting. I am really fan of his poetry and reading frequently it with an intention to perceive the depth of his thoughts.
This is dedicate to my best friend and favorite poet Afzal Shauq , he is a star, a real star which was hidden into the cloud but he is now known as a global poet now he is out of that cloud , where ever you will find peace there will be this name Afzal Shouq .he is as my brother and friend .
