23nd death anniversary of a eminent poet and lyricist, Masroor Anwar is being observed today (April 1). Masroor Anwar was one of the most prominent lyricists of the Pakistani film industry from 1962 to 1990.
His poetry is a reflection of social injustice, discriminations and personal misfortunes of his characters. This is why he, himself commented: “Real laughter is one that sheds tears when squeezed”. Numerous of his Punjabi lines and phrases have actually become a figure of speech in everyday conversations.
In the early 70’s, he also wrote some of the most memorable patriotic songs such as Sohni Dharti Allah Rakhay, Apni Jaan Nazar Karoon, Watan Ki Mitti Gawah Rehna and Jug Jug Jiye Mera Pyara Watan.
