Upon Reading Sarmad Sehbai's Poem "Mulaaqaat" (The Rendezvous)
A stunning photographic portrait... in this photograph, Sarmad Sehbai, the iconic modern Urdu poet, appears surrounded by his ideas... his thoughts appear to swirl around him surreally... all poets construct their own universe with words and word associations and memories and images... in this photo-portrait it appears that Sarmad Sehbai's universe is metamorphosing out of thin air through his thoughts and ideas and his inspiration...
I have a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA (1992) and am currently employed in a research lab in Toronto, Canada. I am interested in poetry, especially Urdu and Punjabi poetry.
