Aale Ahmed Saroor
Poet, critic, scholar, stalwart, Ale Ahmad Suroor was the grand old man of not just Urdu adab but all of Urdu tehÿμb. His death at the ripe old age of 91 years on 9 February 2002 has left a void in the world of Urdu letters. Born in 1911 in the historic city of Budayun.Suroor Sahab’s own poetry had none of the wild passion and rebellion that marked much of the poetry of Urdu progressive writers, especially the poetry written in free-verse. Like beauty, he believed, poetry too had a thousand faces. In contrast to his vastly erudite and extremely scholarly critical writings, his ghazals and na ms have a sweet simplicity and a melodious, distinctly non-cerebral quality. Where his scholarly work is written from the head and appeals to reason and good sense and learning, his poetry is written from the heart.
