Mareez The Poet
|His thought on Literature :|
I, Mohsin Abbas Vasi, son of Abbas Abdulali Vasi
“Mareez” have great pleasure in presenting the website of my father, a
well-known Gujarati Shayar, known as
“Ghalib of Gujarat.” My sister, Lulua
has also put in her efforts. This website is created with a view to give
a clear picture about his life.
People dont like their personal affairs to be known to all. Thus he said the following :
Ahin badhana jeevan ma anek parda che
Ahin khudana veena koi benakaab nathi
Badhana same na eno prachar karo ‘Mareez”
To support this he wrote in Aagman :
"Maara angat jeevan ne maara chahako e emni
chhahna ma vachhe avva nathi didhu, e emni kheldili che ane hawe jyare
maru angat jeevan ane jaaher jeevan samaan kaksha par vahan kare che
tyare mara antar ni abhilasha ej che ke mari gazalon nu vaanchan te o ej
dhrashti e kare."
In his life span, he wrote two books :
One was AAGMAN and another was NAKSHA (published after his death).
He also wrote MARASHIYAS on IMAM HUSSAIN & other religious subjects named AQIDAT. Some of his religious work has been narrated in this website.
He also wrote HISTORY of KARBALA – “MAZLUM MUSSAFIR”.
Another book “HUR (AS)", was about a brave warrior, the first martyr who laid down his life on IMAM HUSSAIN (AS).
