About the Author

Add caption


I am known as Tanwir Phool in the literary circle. "Tanwir" means "refulgence" and "Phool" means "flower".
My first poetry was published in April, 1957. My father and mother always encouraged my literary activities. My 12 books have been published so far.

I am a preacher of universal brotherhood, peace, education, charity and equality. I think that poetry may be defined as melody of nature.

I have been awarded these prestigious awards for my Urdu poetry:


  • Presidential Award,
  • Faran Writers' Guild Award,
  • Governor Sindh Award,

  • National Book Foundation Awards and

  • Academy Award
My name has been included in the Complete Urdu Encyclopedia
(Volume 3) ISBN 9693100115 at pages No. 83 and 84, compiled by Justice S.A.Rahman
and C . Smith Junior and published by Sheikh Ghulam Ali and Sons Ltd.,
Lahore (Pakistan)

My name has also been included at page No.71 of " Ahl-e-Qalam
Directory " published in 2008 ( ISBN: 978-969-472-153-1 ) by
