Play • 10 min
Holi is a social festival which has been written a lot about in Urdu poetry from the spectrum of India's ganga-jamuni tehzeeb.

Although there are many poets who have expressed their love for the festival, Wali Muhammad, who wrote using nom de plume, 'Nazeer', wrote almost a dozen nazms on Holi.

In this episode we not only look at some of Nazeer Akbarabaadi's works, we also read Azhar Iqbal, Bhartendu Harishchandra, among others.

Tune in.
