Khwaab-e-Seher

1991, Audio Cassette, 60 min

At a time when the entire country was reeling under communal frenzy, MLF produced ‘Khwaab-e-Saher’, an audio cassette of a collection of Urdu poetry by great poets like Faiz, Iqbal, Sahir, Majaaz, Bismil and Dushyant.

The collection not only demonstrates the literary contribution of the poets, most of who were Muslim, it also underscores the deep roots of Urdu in our culture, and the collective aspiration of the poets for a free India. Above all, the collection celebrates the sanity of humanity.

The music was composed by Shubhendu, a noted cultural activist, who also lent his voice along with his group Pratidhwani.
