بسم اللہ الرحمٰن الرحیم
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 brother-hood, peace, education, charity and equality. I think that poetry may be defined as melody of nature.
I have been blessed with these prestigious awards for my Urdu poetry:
1) Presidential Award from the Government of Pakistan.
2) Faran Writers' Guild Award.
3) Cash Award for Rs.100,000/- from Governor Sindh.
4) National Book Foundation's Awards  and
5) 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.,
