Marking famend Indian Urdu poet Kaifi Azmi’s 101st delivery anniversary, Google on Tuesday launched a serene doodle.
A Sahitya Akademi and National Film Award winner, Azmi graced the Indian movie enterprise for decades with his lyrics and songs.
The late Urdu poet and lyricist, Kaifi Azmi is noted for bringing Urdu literature into the movie industry.
His legendary works such as Pakeezah’s soundtrack Chalte Chalte, Koi Yeh Kaise Bataye from Arth, Heer Ranjha’s Yeh Duniya Yeh Mehfil and poem Aurat have long past down as excellent contributions to Urdu and Hindi languages.
Azmi was born Sayyid Athar Hussein Rizvi on January 14, 1919, in the United British province Mizwaan, which is now Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh.
Son of an prosperous zamindar in Azamgarh’s Mijwan village, Kaifi rebelled against the hierarchal and in-equal social device he grew up in and his poetry highlighted the exploitation of the loads and the want for a new and just social order.
An avowed communist, Kaifi’s affiliation with the Progressive Writers’ Movement and the Communist Party lent a one of a kind social consciousness to all his works.
