Dear Khalid Sohail Sahib: Tasleem:
 
Thru 'Shair' Bombay's August-06 I've known about ur accomplishments, and aould'nt refrain from appreciating ur lots of work in different areas. Particularly, I've gone thru ur poetry, which is my interest of reading and of writing. As a 'ghazalgo' I admire ur thoughts, ur choice of words, tashbihaat, and istaa'ras which represent the full expressions of intensity of the messages, u intend to deliver.
 
I'm also suprised of one of ur ghazals' 'behr', 'radeef', and 'qaafia', which exactly resembles one of my ghazals' which has been published in one of my books "vafa kyuu'n nahee'n milty?" in the yr 2000. Like ur ghazal's matlaa':
 
safar mai'n khud hi haa'il ho gaya huu'n......mei'n apna raasta roke khaRa huu'n.
 
cha'nd ashaar of my ghazal:
 
agarche chalte chalte thak gaya huu'n.......magar phir bhi musalsal chal raha huu'n.
 
mei'n insaa'n huu'n magar insaan hi se......juda hota bikharta ja raha huu'n.
 
aTa huu'n dhuul se garche, chalo tum......kisi manzil ko jaata raasta huu'n.
 
talab, hasrat, vafa, aur yaad ban ke.......teri aa'nkho'n se aksar beh raha huu'n.
 
ghamo'n ne mujh ko dohraaya yuu'n 'ashraf'.....ghazal ka juu'n radeef-o-qaafiya huu'n.
 
I think u will respond, if u have time. I've many things to discuss like music, as two of my ghazals have been sung by Ghulam Ali, some Hamid Ali Khan, some Riaz Ali Khan, as well as in my own voice too. The CD is the process of releasing. Waiting for ur reply. My phone # is (559)237-3126 and address is : Ashraf Gill, 2348 W. Carmen Ave, Fresno, California 93728 ( U.S.A.) My web site is ashrafgill.com
