ڈاکٹر احمد علی برقی اعظمی کی موضوعاتی شاعری : ڈاکٹر غلام شبیر رانا
 اردو ادب میں موضوعاتی شاعری پر بہت کم توجہ دی گئی ہے .قلی قطب شاہ سے لے کر ڈاکٹر احمد علی برقی اعظمی تک اردو میں موضوعاتی  شاعری نے جو ارتقائی سفر طے کیا ہے اس کا جائزہ لینے سے یہ حقیقت روز روشن کی طرح واضح ہو جاتی ہے کہ موضوعاتی شاعری نے اب ایک مضبوط اور مستحکم روایت کی صورت اختیار کر لی ہے .اس رجحان کو انجمن پنجاب کی خیال پرور اور فکر انگیز شاعری سے بے پناہ تقویت ملی .آقائے اردو مولانا محمد حسین آزاد کی مساعی سے اردو میں‌موضوعاتی شاعری کو ایک اہم مقام ملا.اس کے بعد یہ روایت مسلسل پروان چڑھتی رہی .عالمی شہرت کے حامل نامور شاعر محسن بھوپالی کا ایک شعری مجموعہ “موضوعاتی شاعری ” کے نام سے آج سے پندرہ برس پہلے شائع ہو چکا ہے .اس سے یہ صداقت معلوم ہو تی ہے کہ روشن خیال ادیبوں ،دانشوروں اور شاعروں نے موضوعاتی شاعری کی اہمیت کو تسلیم کرتے ہوئے اس صنف میں طبع آزمائی کی .مجھے یہ جان کر خوشی ہوئی کہ ممتاز ادیب ،شاعر ،دانشور ،نقاد اور محقق ڈاکٹر احمد علی برقی اعظمی نے اردو کی موضوعاتی شاعری پر بھر پور توجہ دی ہے .ان کی شاعری کے متعدد نمونے میرے سامنے ہیں .وہ جس موضوع پر قلم اٹھاتے ہیں اسے لا زوال بنا دیتے ہیں .ان کا اختصاص یہ ہے کہ وہ عظیم تخلیق کاروں کو منظوم خراج تحسین پیش کر کے ان کے بارے میں مثبت شعور و آگہی پرواں چڑھانے کی مقدور بھر سعی کرتے ہیں .اس میدان میں ان کی مساعی اپنی مثال آپ ہیں .جس انداز میں وہ اپنے موضوع پر طبع آزمائی کرتے ہیں اوروں سے وہ  تقلیدی طورپر بھی ممکن نہیں.اس لا زوال اور ابد آشنا شاعری میں کوئی ان کا شریک اور سہیم دکھائی نہیں دیتا.مرزا اسداللہ خان غالب ،میر تقی میر ،احمد فراز،پروین شاکر،فیض احمد فیض ،سید صادقین نقوی،مظفر وارثی اور متعدد عظیم تخلیق کاروں کو ڈاکٹر احمد علی برقی اعظمی نے جس خلوص  اور دردمندی سے خراج تحسین پیش کیا وہ نہ صرف ان کی عظمت فکر کی دلیل ہے بلکہ اس طرح ان کا نام جریدہ عالم پر ہمیشہ کے لیے ثبت ہو گیا ہے .ان کا اسلوب ان کی ذات ہے .وہ انسانی ہمدردی کے  بلند ترین منصب پر فائز ہیں .کسی کا دکھ درد دیکھ کر وہ تڑپ اٹھتے ہیں اور فی البدیہہ موضوعاتی شاعری کے ذریعے وہ تزکیہ نفس کی متنوع صورتیں تلاش کر کے ید بیضا کا معجزہ دکھاتے ہیں.ان کی موضوعاتی شاعری کا تعلق کسی ایک فرد،علاقے یا نظریے سے ہر گز نہیں ان کی شاعری میں جو پیغام ہے اس کی نوعیت آفاقی ہے اور وہ انسانیت کے ساتھ روحانی وابستگی اور قلبی انس کا بر ملا اظہار کرتے ہیں .ان کا یہ اسلوب انھیں ممتاز اور منفرد مقام عطا کرتا ہے .ان کے بار احسان سے اردو داں طبقے کی گردن ہمیشہ خم رہے گی . انھوں نے تہذیبی اور ثقافتی اقدار کو اشعارکے قالب میں ڈھال کر  وہ معرکہ آرا  کارنام انجام دیا ہے جو تاریخ ادب میں آب زرسے لکھا جائے گا.

Parbat se utar kar chali jangal mein hawa tez

Main bhi usi raftaar se kuchh door chala tez

Phir dhoop mein saayon ke huey sainkdon tukde

Phir waqt ki talwar ko suraj ne kiya tez

Inhen mandir banana hai, unhen masjid banana hai

Koi sunta naheen unki, jinhen ik ghar banana hai

Pt Anand Narayan Zutshi Gulzar Dehlavi

Gulzar DehlaviHe was born on 7 July, 1926 in Old Delhi’s Gali Kashmeerian. Both his father Allama Tirbhoon Nath Zutshi “Zar” Dehlavi and mother Brij Rani Zutshi “Bezar” Dehlavi were Urdu poets. Punditji did his schooling in the Ramjas school and BVJ Sanskrit School. He did his MA from Hindu College, and law from Law College. He also passed Adeeb Fazil and Munshi Fazil examinations of Anjuman Taraqqi Urdu Hind which was then affiliated to Punjab University. He was closely associated with Baba-e-Urdu Maulvi Abdul Haq and Allama Datatrya Kaifi.
The gradual decline of Urdu in its traditional homeland, has made people suspicious about its future, even Urdu-speaking people hardly show interest for this sweet language as a result future seems gloomy for Urdu. Amidst this, there is a man of karma who is confident about Urdu’s future, devoting all his efforts for popularizing and echoing the message of peace through Urdu shairi. Pandit Gulzar Dehlavi is not an ordinary man. He is  an octogenarian leading an active yet simple life. Moreover, he is a person of ganga jamuni tehzeeb. He is a truly Gandhian, wearing sherwani and churidaar pajaama and Nehru cap and working tirelessly for Hindu Muslim harmony through Urdu poetry. He devotes every moment of his life for Urdu. Today national and international mushhairas are not complete without his presence.

For speaking in favour of Urdu, he does not care about anyone. For him, Urdu is not a mere language, it is a messenger of peace, love and affection depicting the true culture of India. “It is our language, our forefathers always used Urdu. How can I treat Urdu badly. There have been politics and conspiracies to destroy Urdu”, he says.

After Independence, when Government started Science Reporter in English and Vigyan Pargati in Hindi, he was in the forefront who raised the voice for starting science popularizing magazine in Urdu also, and he was supported in this by the then Minister of Education Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Later he was appointed as the first editor of Science ki Dunia, India’s first popular science magazine in Urdu. He fought 12 long years against government for this magazine until the government relented in 1970, and the first Urdu Science magazine was published in 1975. He served the magazine from 1975-89 as an editor. He said that “it  was very hard time to me when everyone was suspicious about Urdu, and  the government machinery didn’t cooperate with me. For others it is a service or career but for me it is was my mission.” Every year since inception from 1975 to 1985, Science ki Dunia organized a programme to celebrate Annual Science Day and this function was attended  by the nation’s eminent scientists, educational, social and political personalities but the bureaucrats did not cooperate. This didn’t deter him and he continued to work with full devotion leaving no stone unturned for making conducive atmosphere for Urdu. “The  activities against Urdu didn’t make me weak,” he said adding that many official irregularities hindered his work, sometimes paper for printing was not available and other times sanction of certain needs was delayed but there were many personalities like Dr. Naudama, Dr. Syed Hasan Zaheer, Anwar Jamal Qidwai, Pandit Anand Narain Mulla, Deewan Anand Kumar (former VC, Punjab University), Professor Swaroop Singh, Hakeem Abdul Hameed, Professor R.C Mehrotra (former VC, Delhi & Jodhpur universities) who loved Urdu and they were source of inspiration and  helped a lot at hard times.

He said, today the condition for Urdu is favourable and Urdu should be promoted as a language of peace and this is a democratic and fundamental right of Urdu people. Urdu’s future is bright.

It will always flourish because its foundation is based on love and affection.  There are many countries where Urdu is taught at university and school levels. Urdu is a live and active language and it will still be a live language on the dooms day. Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi and Punjabi people use 60% Urdu words. In poetry, pro-Urdu diction has come.

He advised every Urdu-knowing person to take the responsibility to teach Urdu privately to their family members, to their friends and relatives and also teach Urdu script up to the level of class VI to their new generation and this will be sufficient for the development of Urdu. What we see today is a conspiracy against Urdu and the remedy lies in the hands of Urdu people.

راستہ بھول گیا ایک ستارہ اپنا

چاند نے بند کیا جب سے دریچہ اپنا

روز آئینہ دکھاتی ہے زمانے بھر کو

زندگی دیکھ لے تو بھی کبھی چہرہ اپنا

عکس تیرا کبھی اوجھل ہو اگر منظر سے

آئینہ ڈھونڈھتا رہ جائے اجالا اپنا

سوچتا ہوں تری تصویر دکھا دوں اس کو

روشنی نے کبھی سایہ نہیں دیکھا اپنا

یہ سلگتا ہوا صحرا ہے نشانی اس کی

راستہ بھول گیا تھا کوئی دریا اپنا

تمہاری خوشبو تھی ہم سفر تو ہمارا لہجہ ہی دوسرا تھا

یہ عکس بھی آشنا سا ہے کچھ مگر وہ چہرہ ہی دوسرا تھا

وہ ادھ کھلی کھڑکیوں کا موسم گزر گیا تو یہ راز جانا

ادھر شناسائی تک نہیں تھی ادھر تقاضا ہی دوسرا تھا

گلاب کھلتے تھے چاہتوں کے چراغ جلتے تھے آہٹوں کے

جہاں برستی ہیں وحشتیں اب کبھی وہ رستہ ہی دوسرا تھا

کبھی نہ کہتا تھا دل ہمارا کہ آنسوؤں کو لکھیں ستارہ

جدائیوں کی کسک سے پہلے یہ استعارہ ہی دوسرا تھا

اداس لفظوں کے راستے میں یہ روشنی کی لکیر کب تھی

محبتوں کے سفر سے پہلے غزل کا لہجہ ہی دوسرا تھا

منتخب تخلیقات
شب ظلوم کے پردے اٹھائیے تو سہی
نسیم صبح ہے نغمے سنا ئیے تو سہی
وفائے ہم نفساں تو ڈبو رہی ہے مجھے
اب انتقام رقیباں بچائیے تو سہی
بپا ہے حشر بداماں بس اک نظرکےلئے
نگاہ ناز کے صدقے لٹائیے تو سہی
چمک رہے ہیں ستارے سبھی مقدر کے
جنوں کی راہ پہ چل کر دکھائیے تو سہی
حریم ذات سے غم کو فرار مل نہ سکے
دیار غیر میں دل کو لگا ئیے تو سہی
مدام ہجر کا بدری یہی مداوا ہے
سکوت شب سے ہی دل کو لبھائیے تو سہی
حسن ہو شوخ تو نظارہ جواں ہوتا ہے
ان کے دیدار سے ایسا ہی سماں ہوتا ہے
پھوٹتی ہے لب ِخنداں سے شگوفے کی کرن
جیسے سیپی سے کوئی موتی عیاں ہوتا ہے
لعلگوں ہونٹ کسی پھول کی پتّی جیسے
اور گالوں پہ گلابوں کا گماں ہوتا ہے
یوں نظر آتی ہے ان کے لب و عارض کی چمک
چاند جیسے کوئی چلمن سے عیاں ہوتا ہے
زلف بر دوش جب آتے ہیں بصد ناز و ادا
آمد ِباد ِبہاری کا سماں ہوتا ہے
جب چشم نیم باز نے چھیڑا ہے بار بار
پھر ہم نے شوق سے اسے دیکھا ہے بار بار
اک بار پی لی بس، یہ شراب ِغمِ جہاں
یہ بار بار کیسا تماشا ہے بار بار
یہ ان کی کج نگاہ نے چھوڑا ہے کیسا تیر
جو دل کے پار ہو کے بھی چبھتا ہے بار بار
تو جب سے ٹھہرا چارہ گرِ زخمِ جان و دل
صحرائے غم میں تیرا ہی چرچا ہے بار بار
یہ ان کی اپنی سوچ کہ میرے نہ ہو سکے
میں نے تو ان کو اپنا ہی سمجھا ہے بار بار
تھک ہار کے ہوا دلِ بدری یوں باز خواں
یاران انجمن! تمہیں ڈھونڈا ہے بار بار

مرے دادا جو برٹش فوج کے نامی بھگوڑے تھے

نہ جانے کتنی جیلوں کے انہوں نے قفل توڑے تھے

چرس کا اور گانجے کا وہ کاروبار کرتے تھے

خدا سے بھی نہیں ڈرتے تھے بس بیگم سے ڈرتے تھے

مرے تائے بھی اپنے وقت کے مشہور چیٹر تھے

کئی جیلوں کے تو وہ ہاف ایرلی بھی وزیٹر تھے

ہر اک غنڈہ انہیں گھر بیٹھے غنڈہ ٹیکس دیتا تھا

تجوری توڑنے کا فن انہیں سے میں نے سیکھا تھا

چچا مرحوم ناسک جیل سے جب واپس آئے تھے

تو مشہور زمانہ اک طوائف ساتھ لائے تھے

وہ ٹھمری دادرا اور بھیرویں میں بات کرتی تھی

ترنم میں ثریا اور لتا کو مات کرتی تھی

مرے والد خدا بخشے کہیں آتے نہ جاتے تھے

سحر سے شام تک اماں کے آگے دم ہلاتے تھے

تھی اک بکرے نما براق داڑھی ان کے چہرے پر

مگر پھر بھی کبڈی کھیلتے تھے رات کو اکثر

میں اپنے باپ دادا کے ہی نقش پا پہ چلتا ہوں

مگر بس فرق اتنا ہے وہ غنڈے تھے میں نیتا ہوں

پولس پیچھے تھی ان کے تھرڈ ڈگری کی ضیافت کو

مرے پیچھے بھی رہتی ہے مگر میری حفاظت کو

نہیں پروا کہ لیڈر کون اچھا کون گندہ ہے

سیاست میری روزی ہے الیکشن میرا دھندہ ہے

سیاست میں قدم رکھ کر حقیقت میں نے یہ جانی

چرا کارے کند عاقل کہ باز آید پشیمانی

محمد طاہر انصاری نام اور طاہر نقاشؔ قلمی نام اختیار کرتے ہیں۔ انھوں نے ۴؍فروری ۱۹۶۷ ؁ء کو برہان پور میں محمد شبیر انصاری کے یہاں آنکھیں کھولیں ۔ان کی تعلیم و تربیت اور پرورش برہان پور کے ادبی ماحول میں ہوئی ، معاشی حالات کی ناساز گاری کے سبب تعلیم کا سلسلہ کئی بار منقطع ہوا۔ لیکن علم کی حصولیابی کے شوق نے ان کی ہمت باندھے رکھی۔ علمی استعداد ایم،اے(انگلش) تک ہے۔ تعلیم سے فراغت کے بعد ۲۱؍جولائی ۱۹۹۸ ؁ء سے درس وتدریس کاسلسلہ ، بحیثیت انگریزی استاد کے جاری ہے ۔ملازمت کے دوران انھوں نے بی،ایڈ اور ایم ،اے اردو کی ڈگریاں بھی حاصل کی ہیں۔
شاعری کی ابتداء:۔
برہان پور کے ادبی ماحول نے انھیں شعروادب کی طرف راغب کیا ،یوں بھی ان کے والد نے منظرؔ تخلص اختیار کرکے کچھ عرصہ شاعری کی تھی ۔جس کا اثر طاہر نقاشؔ پر بھی ہوا۔ ادب میں طاہر نقاشؔ کی آمد شاعری کے راستے سے ہوئی۔ اختر آصفؔ سے کلام پراصلاح لی اور لطیف شاہد کو بھی اپنا کلام دکھاتے رہتے ہیں ۔ابھی تک کوئی مجموعۂ کلام شائع نہیں ہوا۔شاعری کے ساتھ مشاعروں میں بھی ایک کامیاب ناظمِ مشاعرہ کی شناخت قائم کرچکے ہیں۔
نثر کی ابتداء:۔
نثر کی ابتداء مختصر مراسلے سے کی ۔ فن خطاطی جاننے کی وجہ سے کئی کتابیں ان کی خوش نویسی سے ہوکر گزریں، ساتھ ہی اخبار ’’برہان پور ٹائمز‘‘ میں مختلف مضمون نگاروں کے مضامین کتابت کرنے سے مضمون نگاری کی طرف توجہ مبذول ہوئی۔ اس کے بعد کچھ مضامین تحریر کئے، جن کی تعداد ۵۔۶ ہے ۔ڈاکٹر محمد شفیع کے انتقال کے بعد ان پر لکھا گیا مضمون طاہر نقاشؔ کو ایک اچھا مضمون نگار ثابت کرتا ہے ۔ اس کے علاوہ انھوں نے مختلف شخصیات کی خدمات پر تقریباً ایک درجن سپاس نامے بھی تحریر کئے ہیں۔ جن میں سے چند کے عنوانات ذیل میں ہیں۔

Zindagi ki tarah bikhar jaayen……kyun ham aise jiyen ki mar jaayen

kar di meeras waarison ke sipurd….zindagi kis ke naam mar jaayen

rooh ke karb ka kuchh mudaawa no tha….

doctor neend ki goiyan likh gaya

wo dekhne mein ab bhi tanawar darakht hai

haalanke waqt khod chuka hai jaden tamam.

Hasrat Jaipuri

Hasrat Jaipuri (April 15, 1922 – September 17, 1999). He was basically a Hindi and Urdu film lyricist. He does not have any significance in Urdu literary world. Most of his filmy poetry is mere tukbandi and plagiarization. For example, he wrote a song “O mere shah-e-khooban, tum mere paas hote ho, koi doosra naheen hota” in a film which is plagiarized from Meer’s couplet. Hasrat was born Iqbal Husain in Jaipur, where he studied English till medium level, and then acquired his taalim in Urdu and Persian from his grandfather, Fida Husain. He began writing verse, when he was around twenty years old. Around same time, he fell in love with a Hindu girl named Radha. He wrote a poem for her.  In 1940, Hasrat came to Mumbai, and worked as a bus conductor, earning a monthly salary of eleven rupees. He used to participate in mushairas. At a mushaira, Prithviraj Kapoor noticed Hasrat and recommended him to his son, Raj Kapoor. Raj Kapoor was planning a musical love story, Barsaat (1949) with Shankar-Jaikishan. Hasrat wrote his first recorded song, Jiya Beqaraar Hai for the film. His second song (and first duet) was Chhod Gaye Baalam.

Sukhan’ Jaipuri

Rai Saheb Krishna Gopal Saxena ‘Sukhan’ Jaipuri  was born on August 13, 1894 and died on December 11, 1988). In 1921 he was the first Kayastha boy in the city ofJaipurwho had become a graduate and that too from the rather distantAllahabadUniversity. He joined the service of the court of the princely state of Jaipur and retired in 1951 as the Assistant Secretary of the state, having served in important capacities as the Superintendent Court of Wards and Special Secretary, Revenue etc. He was honored with the title of ‘Rai Saheb’ in 1947 by the then Maharaja of Jaipur Sawai Man Singh on the occasion of the silver jubilee of his ascension to the throne. He was also the Secretary of the Jaipur Chamber of Commerce and Industries for quite a long time after his retirement from the princely Court of Jaipur. ‘Sukhan” Jaipuri saheb published his collection (Deewan) of Urdu poetry with the title ‘Bahaar-e-Sukhan’ in 1971. The foreword to this work was written by another famous poet and his contemporary ‘Saba’ Jaipuri. The work received keen attention of the connoisseurs and aficionados of Urdu poetry. ‘Qamar’ Wahidi wrote a full ghazal in its honor in 1975. ‘Dilkash’ Badayuni wrote a paper on it. The Rajasthan Sahitya Academi, in its anthology of Urdu poets of Rajasthan made a special reference to his poetry. Finally in 1988, the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, under the auspices of the Rajasthan Urdu Academy, honored his services to Urdu poetry and presented him with a formal Letter of Appreciation. His maternal granddaughter Dr. Anjali Nimal has translated a collection of his selected poetry in Hindi also entitled “Mash’al-e-Rah”. ‘Sukhan’ Jaipuri sahib had diverse experiences in life; ranging from a lordly affluent life in the service of the princely court to some very difficult times in his 37 years of life after retirement—all that was to find expression in his poetry.
