    Seeing this blog is a wonderful experience for me. Bhopalis must thank you for your efforts. I dont expect that you remember me, but I was frequently meeting you when you were working with Aftab Jadeed, Bhopal. At present I am working at Banaras Hindu University as a teacher. I am also a lover of Bhopal and continiously writing on Bhopal and its writers. Congratulations. Yawar

  4. Dr Yaqoob Yawar says:

    The sher written in the entry of Sajid Sajni is actually not of him. It is Parveen Shakir’s sher I think. I know that you derived this sher from Sajni’s intikhab-e-Kalam NIGODIYAT but I dont know how it had been included in his intikhab.

    Ishrat Qadri Sahab ke intiqal purmalal ki khabar sun kar shadeed ranj hua. Khuda unhen apne jaware rahmat men jagah de aur pasmandgan ko sabr ki tafiq ata farmaye.

  17. So, they are not found, at least by you: خالص بھوپالی، ڈھینڈس بھوپالی.، عاجز بھوپالی، عاشق بھوپالیی
    Now, should I take this opportunity to share about them?

  18. Shahab Syed says:

    جناب مسلم سلیم صاحب، اسلام علیکم
    آپکے پیج پر چند نام دیکھ کر حیرت ہوئی کے یہ نام آپ سے کیسے چھوٹ گئے۔ جیسے، تخلص بھوپالی، ممنون حسن خان، ناصر کنمال ۔ ازراہِ کرم انکو بھی اپنے پیج پر جگہ دیں کہ اردو ادب میں انکا بھی بیت کام ہے۔
    شہاب سیّد
