Akbar Allahabadi Poetry – In the fragrant and colorful world of poetry and poets, where raw expression of emotions is the sole source of survival; the majestic poet Akbar Allahabadi drew mostly satire in his compositions and gave himself an impression of a gypsy poet.
aah jo dil se nikālī jā.egī
kyā samajhte ho ki ḳhālī jā.egī
His sublime and natural take on words while defining fragile subjects remained unmatched. The title "Lisan-ul-Asr" was bestowed upon him for his literary excellence. Akbar Allahabadi’s Poetry composition was based on the Subjects of Love, philosophy, religion, social reform, satire, British rule and emotions. Says he in one of his delicately striking sher;
aql meñ jo ghir gayā lā-intihā kyūñkar huā
jo samā meñ aa gayā phir vo ḳhudā kyūñkar huā
He, being an Indian Muslim and Urdu poet could barely perceive India as a land but witnessed the country as a pliant and subservient vassal of the British Raj and as a "warehouse of Europe". His compositions of Shayari reflect his mind. Also showing criticism for Syed Ahmed Khan’s take on pro-western beliefs and religious views, he said;
Hazir huya main Khidmat e Sayyad mein Ek Raat
Afsos hai ke ho na saki kuchh ziyaada baat
Bole ke tum pe Deen ki Islaah Farz hai !
Main chal diya ye kah ke Aadaab Arz hai.
Showing a comedic rivalry in literature, Akbar Allahabadi later came to realize Syed’s motive and its vitality, displaying respect and support. Here it depicts how time reshaped Akbar’s perception. His ghazals continued to gain fame far and wide and beyond India. Akbar Allahabadi Ghazalz are considered gems of Urdu. He published four collections of poem in his lifespan. By time he was transformed into a contemporary of the great social reformer and scholar Sir Syed Ahmad khan. He passed away in 1921 in Allahabad.
