30: Dear 'Befikre' Or 'Ghaafil', You've Got A Message From Faiz & Iqbal
Play • 13 min
'Ghaflat' and 'Taghaful' mean 'carelessness' or 'ignorance'. In Urdu poetry, it is the poet's lover who is usually guilty of this and hence is called a 'ghaafil' - someone who is oblivious of the poet's feelings.

However, Faiz Ahmad Faiz and Allama Iqbal have a different point of view. For them there are different reasons for the built-up of 'taghaful - one says its 'laziness', the other feels its 'arrogance' or 'indifference'.

Tune in to know what is it that makes us 'befikre'.
