Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Pakistan’s most revered radical poet, spent some of his exile years in Zehra Nigah’s London home. Join us at T2F as Zehra Apa, one of Pakistan’s most prominent and loved poets, reads and remembers Faiz Sahab.
Zehra Nigah burst onto the literary horizon as a child prodigy in the 1950s and has consistently been hailed as the one voice worth listening to on the mushaeraa circuit.
Zehra Nigah has published three volumes of poetry, Shaam ka Pehla Taara, Waraq, and Firaq. She says she has never felt the urge to be prolific, to write when there is nothing to say. Yet every word that emerges from her pen, every syllable that she speaks, carries the spark of a luminous intelligence. (Some excerpts from the Hindu Literary Review)
