Woh Jo Shairi Ka Sabab Hua

Woh Jo Shairi Ka Sabab Hua (That which made me a poet) is an anthology of poems of various lengths by Janab Kaleem Aajiz Sb. The book begins with forewords by several eminent literati and a short life story of the poet himself. The life-story, written in lucid Urdu, touches the hearts of the readers and arouses more emotions that a well-planned novel would do. It is a tragedy and a heart-rending one at that. Sadly though, it is a real story.
