Tribute to Intizar Hussain

Intizar Hussain is one of the great Urdu scholars and the literary person in Pakistan, who passed away on 1st February, 2016. His death is unfortunate not just for his loved ones but for all the Urdu literature lovers and his intellectual fans across the world. In order to present a tribute to this legendary dignitary, many media persons, intellectuals and academics gathered at the Karachi Arts Council to bestow their blessings and eulogies for the departed soul.

In the light of what all the gathered people say about Intizar Hussain, he was one of the dearest living legends of Urdu literature and the void he left cannot be filled again by anyone else. Intizar Hussain loved aesthetics and nature, which was also reflected in his concern over the felling of ancient trees in Lahore. He was sensitive enough to recognize fall of nature in the form of fall of those trees. He often complained that the love for nature have long departed from people’s hearts and so he very genuinely feel the need to feed those birds, which used to sit on those trees.

Intizar Hussain also became a part of association for plays like Khuwabon k Musafir, Bakht Khan and Saatwan Saal. He was an embodiment of civilization and his contributions reflected his grip over culture and art with regard to time and age. Literary persons from across border were also saddened by his death. He always used to consider death as a transition of man, which may also be true in his case.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
