Afzal Shauq, a high profiled and leading celebrity who’s renowned worldwide as ‘The Peace Wisher Poet’ is basically an Afghan citizen has done a lot of contributions for global peace and wrote many books.
His only message of poetry is peace to be ensured all around the world and he believes that the painters/artists and poets/writer can also play a tremendous role in this regard because the power of words and colors is much stronger then the sophisticated weapons as he proudly mentioned the same idea mixing with a friendly smiles and added in his own words that… ‘a friendly smile is the best weapon of war to fight with’ .. quite true and none can deny his above belief .
Who is Afzal Shauq and what’s his true Identity? Whenever he is asked, he proudly mentions that ‘he is a child of Adam’s family and wishes to be treated as a true cousin of all’. which proves that he’s proud to be a humankind rather then to be known from any of racial, tribal and national groups. That’s why, his poetic words are touching hearts of global readers. I noticed that he got fans much in each and every corner of the huge world. Means, he’s enough fair to his missionary cause and wants to capsulate love as the perfect medicines for ailing human society to cure.
Love, life, peace, dreams and humanity are the main subjects of his poetic voices. But to disclose the reality is his passion and he intentionally tries to show off the hidden facts and faces. So according to my personal observations and assessments, he is relatively more favorite to only those selective readers who yearn to be part of a real world rather then those who don’t respect ethical traits of human society. Means, the hearts of those who are worried to face the realities are not supposed to be touched by the poetry of Afzal Shauq ever. Because he’s like a camera eyes and shows real pictures in true way and he avoids to present what doesn’t appeal to his heart or brain. So he’s an accused of facts like Sir Galileo as Afzal himself mentions it repeatedly but look to be proud being a reality promoter.
He got many titles from readers and poetry friends sides.. who are inspired of his poems (‘Love Based Peace’, ‘Peace Formula’ and ‘Bride of Peace’) they name him ‘A Peace Wisher’.
Whose brain has gone stuck in his love poems like (‘Eternal Deal’ Eternity’ and Love ends Differences’) he/she titles him ‘A Love Promoter’.
His fans who love to read his (‘Human Evolution’, ‘Friendly Smile’ and ‘The last Prayer’) type of poems , they loudly claim that Afzal Shauq is ‘A Humanitarian’.
(‘Tattoo of Name’, ‘Sign of Love’ and ‘Repeated Sin’) catagory of poems are making him famous as ‘A Heart Catcher’.
Sort of (‘Dream-like Friend’, ‘Dreams Fulfillment’ and ‘Dream Chasing’) poems are declaring him ‘A Dreamer’.
Sure, the poems (‘Friend of Hundreds’, ‘Lost Passenger’ and ‘Me and The World’) which are inspiring hearts of readers with hot loving logics are making him to be called as ‘A Pal of Buddies’ .
His claim being ‘A child of Adam’ seems valid when we go through his poems (‘Children of Adam’, ‘Universal Family and ‘Misinterpretation’).
His poems (‘Yet To Be Found’, ‘Fairy of Lorelai Rock’ and ‘Desire To Meet’) are giving him a face of ‘A Day Dreamer’.
The renowned celebrity Afzal Shauq, above all his multiple qualities , seems to be quite humane, enough kind hearted and to the limit of empathy... a compassionate one. He talks sweetly and listen patiently.
What else Afzal Shauq is? This question may have hundreds of answers because he has titled himself ‘A Open Book ’ which is true . He being a famous celebrity and his works have spread all around the world of internet. If we just bother to google his name, the international cyber sites in bulk would be appeared to eyes that are covering his extra ordinary works.
It was my dream to see and listen him, but luckily I didn’t bother a lot and got contact with him very easily via net and now for around five long years we have been in touched and sharing words with each other being good friends. So with his consultation I am going to plan a lecture session for his unspoken rich ideas to hear in my country (Canada) and hope I’ll be succeeded. His lecture session would probably be managed till the last of running year.
In last, I want all of his thousands of fans to know that Mr. Afzal Shauq is not a poet only but a true humanist too, just try to disclose him and his philosophical thoughts if be in love with him… he really deserves to be respected a lot and lets we being his fans and friends consider him our sharing lovely cousin.
Best of luck dear Afzal Shauq, we are with you.. just keep on writing and never quit spreading your ‘love based peace’ ideas for the good deal of ideal humanity sake.
