SoachCast: Hyeko

Listen to a Hyeko by Saleem Ahmad as read by Banjara. Poem: Hyeko Poet: Saleem Ahmad Read by: Khalid Banjara Banjara’s Notes: Saleem Ahmed was one of the best intellectuals of our time. One of the few who never knew how to make money out of their talent. Salim falls in the same category as of Iqbal, Dr. Rafee-ud-Din and Syed Sabt-e-Hasan. His book “Nai Nazam aur Poora Admi”, “Nai Sha’iri Namaqbool Sha’iri”, and his most controversial work “Iqbal Aik Shair” are the best of the best of his times. People know him from his TV plays “Aakhri Chata’n” etc. (He completed “Akhri Chata’n”, 46 episodes, in one night). I will read some of his works soon.
