My BIO | My Accomplishments | My News | My Favorite Links | Residence Info | My Books EHSAN EHSAN ________________________________________ My Portfolio My name is Ehsan Elahi Ehsan,.(my email email@example.com) I was born in a small village Tatral, Tehsil and Distt Chakwal Pakistan. My date of birth is 15th March 1941. There are many factors which lead me to make me a poet. Since my boyhood I have been directly experiencing the realities of life. Not only experiencing but also feeling and accumulating in myself whatever I observed or came across. I was 12 years old when my mother died leaving me and my one elder and three younger sisters at the mercy of circumstances. My elder sister was married with a relative of my mother. That was after a couple of years conflict between my father and my mother. My father did not want to marry her where my mother desired. The marriage collapsed after two years. In the meantime my mother died after an ailment of six months. My father was a mason but the work was not frequently available so we suffered poverty and most of the time we had to live from hand to mouth. The elder sister was re-married and I had to arrange all the affairs of home in the absence of my father who had to go and stay out of home in search of labour. In such conditions, I saw strange things to happen. The women of our mohallah frequently visited our home and showed to be very sympathetic, but within the duration of nearly one year, all our households disappeared mysteriously. This awareness had a deep effect on me to have an insight of what kind of human beings we are!. In the worst circumstances to get education, I did my Matriculation from the Govt High School, Chakwal. I could not continue regular education due to the poverty of my father, and had to join the government service in 1958 as a clerk. Immediately after getting the ordinary job, I continued my study. I remained in government service for nearly ten years and after doing my M.A. English in 1967, I resigned from the service to join education field. I had a chance to go to Saudi Arabia as a project administrator in 1976 and remained their for five years and came back to Pakistan. After remaining in Pakistan for three years I went back to Saudi Arabia in the same company for another five years. After that I came back to Pakistan and have been running my own educational centre Iqra Quaid Academy, Jhelum Road, Chakwal, Pakistan since 1990 giving education to graduate and postgraduate classes concentrating on English language and literature. My literary career began in 1962 from Chakwal. In Chakwal, it was first the Urdu Majlis, which provided me opportunity to test my literary and poetic faculties. Urdu Majlis not only provided me a literary stage but also very good friends and models. 1962 was the year when Aslam Ayub and I started our poetic career Aslam Ayub, now, is a well known and famous poet of Chakwal. The prominent writers of this literary organization were Riyaz Chashti, Jamil Hashmi, Anwer Baig Awan, Zakaullah Bismil, Ahsan Akbar, Abid Jaafry, Jamil Yousuf Majid Siddiquee, Sajid Alvi and Bagh Hussain Kamal. Among the other non-poet members included Khawaja Khalid Salim, the father of Khawja Baber Saleem who is running a well known literary organization :Adbiyaat-e- Pakistan and has the honour of arranging many national Mushairas (literary gathering in which the poets recite their poems and get applause from the poets and the audience) An other literary organization which benefited me at that time when I was just a beginner in the poetry was Bazm-e-Sqafat run by a well known poet Iftekhar Natiq whose son Nasir Zaidi is irregularly running Halq-e-Arbab-e-Ghalib. Urdu Majlis Chakwal arranged a small publication “Sabza-e-Begana” which earned a reasonable reputation. In this book, my six Odes were also included. The biggest achievement of Urdu Majlis was however to introduce the poets like me in it. It also published another famous book “Kalam-e- Shah Murad, proving that Hazrat Baba Shah Murad was the first Urdu poet. On my transfer to Rawalpindi during my service, I had the opportunity to attend the sittings of the “Likhney Walon Ki Anjaman and sometime enjoying the company of Rashid Amjad, Ejaz Rahi, Nisar Nasik and Sarwer Kamran. Among others were Jawwad Kazmi, Akhter Immam Rizwi and Majid-al-Baakri. When the literary activities in Chakwal cooled down, I and some other friends like Qazi Baqir Wasim and Abid Jaafry thought of laying the foundation of such an organization which should be regular and produce some literary and artistic work visible to the people. So the foundation of Ewan-e-Adab was laid down. Since 1990 Ewan-e-Adab has been regularly holding the bi-weekly and monthly meetings. It also holds musical concerts as well in which the learned scholar Liaqat Ali Khan and Ehtesham Hassan have been fascinating the audience with their musical raptures. The organizing body of Ewan-e-Adab consists of the following writers. Abid Jaafry Chairman Malik Bashir Jaafer Vice Chairman Ehsan Elahi Ehsan President(myself) Nasik Ejaz Vice President Aslam Ayub Vice President Qazi Baqar Wasim Secretary General Natiq Jaafry Joint Secretary Farzana Yasmin Secretary Press and Publication Noor Ali Shakoori Legal Advisor The women wing of Ewan-e-Adab is being run under the presidentship of Uzma Sadaf. Ewan-e-Adab has so far made the following publications Rishta Hai Kowee Manzoor Haider Shah Ye Khawb Mairey Khiyal Mairy Ehsan Elahi Ehsan The Lost World Ehsan Elahi Ehsan Naqsh-e-Ragey Jaan Abid Jaafry Harf-e-Tammana Noor Ali Shakoori Besides, the following books of the Ewan-e-Adab’s members are published by other publishers. Ashq-e-Duaa Natiq Jaafry Main Phir Bhee Chup Raha Nasik Ejaz Apart from the above literary organizations, and literary persons, the study of English literature has contributed a lot in shaping me a poet. It has fascinated my imagination and set decent example and models before me how to express myself. Wordsworth, Keats anong the Romantics are the poets who have influenced me. The Victorian novelists like Charles Dickens, Hardy, George Eliot have taught me how the impacts of the society affect the individuals and the families. Shakespeare has developed a tragic vision in me and T.S. Eliot has told me the basics of literary criticism. I am thankful to all friends, elements and most of all God Almighty Who has ultimately shaped me a poet of Urdu, English and Punhabi languages and cultivated in me the qualities to make me a writer. I have the material of two new books ready for publication, one of Urdu Ghazal (Odes) and the other a long poem "Mujhey Tum Bhool Hee Jaana. This long poem is attributed to my lovely grand daughter Noor-ul-Huda Zahra. Both the books are waiting for the availability of an appropriate publisher who can publish these books giving me a reasonable royalty. My activities are focussed on two aspects; one literary and the other educational. On literary side, it is the Ewan-e-Adab and on educational side, it is the Iqra Quaid Academy. Through Ewan-e-Adab I myself and other literary friends have been making efforts to keep the literary traditions alive. Under the wise and benevolent leadership of our Chairman and Chief Patron Abid Jaafry, we have succeeded in bringing many literary personalities together. So far numorous poets, and literary writers, apart from the regular organizers of Ewan-e-Adab, have been participatingin the weekly, biweekly and monthly gatherings. These poets and writers include Manzoor Haider Shah (late0 Liaqat Soofi, Ehtesham Hassn Munawar Aziz, Saeed Akram, Ahraf Asif, Ejaz Ajiz, Kabul Jaafry, Ahmed Noor Mooley,Tahir Jaafery, Tahir Hamid Anjum, Marrof Akber Jaafery, Naeem Shahid, Raghib Ali Maula, Tabish Kamal,Iabal Shah, Noor Mohummad Nawik, Raghib Maula, Kamran Kazmi, Tabish Kamal, Babar Saleem, Aslam Ayub, Nisar Jameel (late) Sahibzada Sultan Ali Zulfi(late), Abdul Rabalwi,Mowarz Khan,Jaji Sakhawat, Ferzana Yasmin, Shireen Sahar,Iqbal Feroze(short story writer),Faiz Sultan(short stroy writer). Saail Ehsan (short story writer) and others from Chakwal and Aarif Farhad, Sakib Jaafry, Zee Shaan Haider and otherz s from Rawalpindi and Islamabad and Raza Tiwana from Muzzafergarh. On educational side, Iqra Quaid Academy, besides coaching a lot of students of Intermediate and B.A. students have enabled many students to get postgraduate degrees from various Universities of Pakistan. These students include the following: Uzma Sadaf, Tariq Mahmood, Farkhanda Jabeen, Wasi Haider, Faiz Sultan, Saail Mahmood, Shakeel Ahmed, Ghulam Abbas, Riaz Ahmed, Anila Shaheen, Fakhira Batool, Shireen Syyida, Saira Begum, Samina Begum, Aansa Benazir, Naveda, Rizwana Imtiaz, Aftab Ahmed, Rizwana Chaudry, Afsheen Yousuf, Ferheen Yousuf, Ibtesaam Javed, Iram Shaheen, Shahnaz Begum, Shomaila, Farhat, Aalia Hafeez, Shagufta Shaheen, Saira Chaudry, Saira Faiz, Tabassam, Atia Mumtaz, Atia Mustafa, Zareen, Humaira Javed, Saira Tasleem Farhat Begum, Shah Begam, Shakila, Zobia Zoofishan and Rizwana Raza. Ewan-e-Adab has made another outstanding achievement this month, (july 2005)with the publication of Natiq Jaafry's book "Rakht-e-Khawb published by Mavra Books, Lahore. Dr. Gopi Chand Narang, a famour literary personality of the sub-continent has written its flapper.The title of the book is as beutiful and alluring as the contents of the book. Natiq Jaafry, it is hoped that his poetry would remain fascinating and charming as the breeze of the spring. Although young in age, Natiq Jaafry is not young in his poetic thoughts and poetic diction. He aspires to write more and has been working on his project enthusiastically. It is hoped that he would fully accomplish himself and earn a good name in the history of Urdu poetry. It may be repeated that Natiq Jaafery is the joint secretary of Ewan-e-Adab, Chakwal. Poems from “The Lost Word” Panoram of Human Society In the political scenario of the third world, The leaders are not elected but selected, On the name of general elections. The physical force and the force of money, Is fully let loosed to show its power, The common masses are made to believe. The underhand dealings and the open fiery speeches, Promising the dreamlands, play the vital role. To disfigure the aspirations of the common man, The so-called elected representatives, Make themselves busy in money mongering. The business of investing in political enterprises, Flourishes and the wealth of their native countries, Is siphoned to the money house of the International Finance Institutions. Thus those who should, Have been the guardians of their country and people’s interest, look to their own interests, And if the wind changes, they slip away, To their patron abroad leaving the miserable, People of their country more miserable And if they stay, they come the next term, With more power and influence, making room, In the highest ranks not only for themselves but also for their kin to strengthen their hold, On the nerves of theirs country and the country men. In this process of winning political position, They often display their vote bank and street power. They create their loyals, The poor fellows, The so called ideologists who are ready to sacrifice, Their all belongings, even their lives. On the fame house of their demigods. Thus, in this sacred devotion to their favourits Political leaders, they forget their home, their family and their children. And so in this, loyal process they shift their misery and poverty To their next generation. Some times it happens that the supporters of the families, Are made to rush to prison houses, to perpetuate the glory of those, Who are loyal to none.The weeping daughters and the wailing siters, Die down with their hopes, And the heroes of the prison are soon forgotten, By their lords. A fragmented society gives nothing to its people, Except the begging men and the selling women. The innocent gaiety and fragrance of the children, Is turned into a market of human flesh. Those daughters and sisters, The marvels of gentleness and innocence, Are changed into mobile stones, Of mechanized needs and requirements. In a hypocrite society. Let us search our conscience, for awhile, And see what indignation are we, Causing to the grandeur of human soul. The useful and the magnificent, is really garbed by, Our selfish designs of self interests. Let us not forget, in the joys of our victories of war-fare, that we, Have killed on the other side, Not soldiers but, Human beings, whose wives, mothers, sisters, And children similar to our own are, Waiting for the safe return of, Their husbands, sons, brothers, And fathers, and who have been standing on way, of human love, To put laurels of pure love and, Affection to those who are theirs. The greatest would be the man, Greater even than the angels, theselves, Who could out root, The blood sucking nerves, Of human jealousy from the veins, Of man and make him forgetful of his notorious past. Some times the so-called leaders, Are thinking of the methods, The mechanized methods, Which they are very shrewdly making use or, To magnate the element of human heart. Man is getting changed into a robot, And by an ill-conceived idea, To diminish the human race, a parallel stage of authority is being, Prepared to uglify the beautiful world of God and His creatures. By doing so, the computerized lords, say, They are leading man to the peaks, Of progress, peace, and prosperity Evil cannot be defined but without a good, Let us not be suspicious of those, Who make us naked before our eyes, And show us our real selves, Those who are master in using, Their inherited skill of exploitation, Have given wide publicity, To formulas, and principles, That accomplish their evil designs. Glorifying the poor, To the martyrdom of poverty and hunger. The force of people is the greatest force, What ever system do we have, It cannot bring the splendid and, The supreme out-come, without, The thumb of acceptance, Of the masses. Greatest are those leaders, Who can integrate the great ideas, With the best wishes and aspirations of the people, If the nations are fed upon, With ever new ideas and great hopes, Which bring some satisfaction, To their aspirations, They are never fond of finding. Every moment new heroes and martyrs, And would hate to go into battles on every pretext. But would prefer to live peacefully, With love and order in society, The major aim of all societies, In the world should be, To bring the splendid and the supreme, Universal outcome, For the magnificence of humanity, If we go on killing human beings, Thousand with one stroke, We are going to turn ourselves blood- sucking bruits, Devoid of any soul, And poisoning our souls, With indignities of hatred and nuisance Let us not amalgamate The ideal and insurrection, The ideal is splendid, It gives light, wisdom, consonance, And dignity to humanity, Where as insurrection, Is the outburst of mere enthusiasm, Which may turn into rage, And tend to settle the problems, Ihe use of arms leads to further disaster, It is the ideal that gives birth to movements, And tends to settle the problems, And not the insurrection, Give birth to ideal. The visions and illusions, stand poles apart, And those who cleverly, Try to intermingle both of them, Should never be permitted to take the lead, Or, they would bring calamities to the whole world. Let us shun, once for all, The recourse to arms, Come what may, and here we would, Of course begin moving,, every minute, to the betterment , Of individuals as well as of society. Ideals and beauty are nothing, If they are separated from logic and truth. That is why, the propagandists of tyranny, Are always bent upon, to publicize the vicious ideas, That the artistic people are not logical people. In fact, it is only the artists, Who present four-in-one, The idea, logic, beauty and truth, And they must be given proper attention, If the aspirations for our ideal society, Are to be fulfilled. Being too practical and mechanized, We are losing day by day the quality of imagination, Which enables us to see the, Beauty of vision, Produced by the inward eye. The visionary hours of life, Are the essence of our whole living. When mercantile pre-occupations dominate, They spoil the luminous self of man. And bring down the civilization, To the lowest ebb. Poverty is not a crime, nor riches, A boon, if they do not come by inheritance. Equal opportunities to all, that is, The basic principle and the requirement, Which must be given priority, And which can ensure the individual’s Efforts to bring fruitful result, To strengthen foundations of our, National edifice. We have been endowed by God Almighty, with a piece of land, That is solely our own, And through which we manifest, Our identity before the societies, Of the whole world. This is not only, A piece of land, rather it is, A pure happiness embodied. Let us adore this happiness, By our good will, Good actions and beautiful thoughts The unadorned happiness gives, You inward pleasure, but It is restricted to yourself alone, The adorned happiness extends, Itself to others and spreads, Its fragrance in every human heart, That come across. But the happiness should Never be uglified by damaging, The right of others and Cultivating the seeds of hatred, And selfishness, - the eternal enemies of mankind. In an attempt to forget our past, And in an attempt to look modern and fashionable, We have made our manifestation, Of hap ________________________________________ MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Writer of two published books, one in Urdue poetry and the other in English poetry.
