Parveen Shakir may have left us in 1994 but her memory lives on in her unforgettable poetry.
Google remembers the poet on what would’ve been her 67th birthday with some beautiful artwork that depict her best works.
We love the creative tribute as each panel illustrates a volume written by the poet; , Khushbu (Fragrance), Sad-barg (Marsh Marigold), Khud Kalami (Talking To Oneself), Inkaar (Denial), Kaf-e-Aina (The Mirror’s Edge), and Mah-e-Tamaam (Full Moon).
Said the bio for the work, “Writing from a young woman’s perspective, Pakistani poet Parveen Shakir had an exceptionally decorated career. Her distinguished contributions to Urdu poetry earned her one of the highest civil awards in Pakistan.”
Parveen Shakir was awarded the Adamjee Literary Award in 1976 for Khusbu. She later received the Pride of Performance award for her outstanding contribution to literature.
