ASAD - 71

Small Radeef, BIG Influence

Well, a big Radeef (more words) can easily have considerable influence. Can a small Radeef have such a big influence ? Yes, why not ! Can you think of any example ? It's a very famous GHazal sung by GHulam Ali. It has been discussed many times on RMIM. Also taken in a movie. Enough clues :-) So have another look at this from the Radeef angle ...

beshaql ki aawaaz = faceless voice (superb !)

kal shab mujhe, beshaql ki aawaaz ne chaunka diya,
maine kahaaN, "tu kaun hai ?", usne kahaa, "Aawaaragi"
- 'Mohsin' Naqvi

The Radeef is just one word - "aawaaragi". But you don't need me to explain the influence of Radeef. Here all the shers of the GHazal are about Aawaaragi ! The Radeef is the topic ! Superb GHazal. Approx an year ago, the Shayar Mohsin Naqvi died. A victim of Karachi's riots and violence.

- Abhay.
ASAD _also_ stands for "A Sher A Day" !
