“Yun to Humne lakh haseen dekhe hain” is one of the many songs forever etched in listeners’ hearts that came from Sahir Ludhianvi’s pen.
On his birth centenary, it was not just his hometown Ludhiana that remembered its gem, but his fans spread across the world who took out time to revisit his nazms and ghazals and pay a befitting tribute.
“Dastaan-e-Sahir” is one of the 108 books penned by octogenarian author Kewal Dheer. “I gave a keynote to a three-day online Sahir event on Sunday, addressed two more in Pakistan — one organised by Lahore Art Council and another by Karachi Art Council and what hearty discussions and performances to celebrate a hundred years of the legendary poet,” he said.
