Brought up on English and American poetry, Puran Singh was also influenced by Freudian psychology in his oftentimes unabashedly sensuous poetry. Modernism was also introduced into Punjabi poetry by Prof.

Mohan Singh —78 and Shareef Kunjahi. The Punjabi diaspora also began to emerge during the Raj and also produced poetry whose theme was revolt against British rule in Ghadar di Gunj Echoes of Mutiny. The work of Zaman and Randhawa often treats the rediscovery of Punjabi identity and language in Pakistan since The most critically successful writer in recent times has been Mir Tanha Yousafi who has won the Massod Khaddar Posh Trust Award 4 times, and has had his books transliterated into Gurmukhi for Indian Punjabi readers.

Urdu poets of the Punjab have also written Punjabi poetry including Munir Niazi — The poet who introduced new trends in Punjabi poetry is Pir Hadi abdul Mannan. Though a Punjabi poet, he also wrote poetry in Urdu.


Eastern Punjab India [ edit ] Dr. First, authoritarianism has multiplied to the extent that even for realizing day-today needs, custodians of authority relish dependency. Secondly, creativity in the writing of poetry should arise from the level of interest to that of vocation.

Apparently, their composition may seem like diary writing, but essentially it goes beyond private musings. They become poems because they relate to the Other, male or female, in equal measure: This time when you come In the name of patience, Forbearance, self-respect, Bring not the web of words. Having borne in full the torture This house has meant to me, Intense is the desire To go across it, now. Of this type of poetry, there is another site marked not by any affliction in particular, but by debility in general.

As becomes evident from the collections being brought out by Surjit Hans, old age is the state which brings in boredom, weariness, annoyance, and exasperation. How the body, mind, memory, imagination, intellect, and all other faculties are afflicted, against which no resistance is possible is located as a theme within his collections, Nazarsani Revision , Akk di Chhanven In the Shadow of Akk , and Birdh Lok The Old People. No wonder, with all the enigmas posed, the subject matter resists easy transfer into truth.

Fantasy, to prove cathartic, is accorded no space. Is it not due to this that obscurity seeks no advance into clarity? Expression does not find its correlative in communication. Wherever coincidence prevails between the two, the powerlessness marks the human condition in Punjab at the contemporary juncture. Their contention is that the land of Punjab so rich in fertility has to carry the burden of people harassed by poverty.

No wonder the promise of prosperity held out to the people by the fertility of the land has been belied. What has so far been a blessing has changed into a curse. It is all due to the nefarious designs into which politics of the land has become entangled. There were times when the people were not materially Tejwant S. Gill: Modern Punjabi Poetry rich.

But so magnanimous were they in their intentions and attitudes that scarcity did not bother them at all. Such would be the village fop: Of the helpless and the hapless, The fop would be the intimate chum, Sticking to the word he gave He could kill but more so get killed.

Scarcity tinged with humanity may be there, but not prosperity of the few rendering inevitable the poverty of the multitude. Sitting in the porch, plying the spinning wheels, they are depicted exchanging remarks. But more disposed were they to sing songs earlier, in which their humanity found spontaneous expression.

Sung with full-throated ease, their communication faced no hurdle then. Next is the site from which sufferings caused by caste exercises a brutal gaze. Earlier, till the seventies, caste and class were perceived as synonymous. But during the last decades poets have emerged who regard caste as more pernicious. For all the features I had, Featureless now I am.

On a soiled paper drawn, I am a sludgy address, Nameless but non-existent. As against sites from the countryside in Jaswant Deed and Ambrish, city life is their source and resource for composing poems. His fond wish is that these contradictions should become a part and parcel of his self, and in the erotic field at least, their gain should accrue exclusively to him.

On this score at least, it can be held that such wishes land him in the realm of euphoria rather than schizophrenia. Of this, the best example is to be found in wherein the interlocutor speaks to his wife: Towards your house I cast blank looks, Maybe it is the very house That I seek during the walk.

The poems included in this collection deal with characters who, with their strange demeanor or performance, leave at least some traces behind.

When the agent or the interlocutor is from the realm of those at the center, the effect created is rather exotic because they cannot dispense with their authoritative selves. But when the realm it belongs to is of the de-centered populace, the effect is otherwise. For the people who comprise this de-centered populace, the desire to excel is not altogether alien now. Well aware of the risk involved: It is only the string that she sees- String, not lengthier than two yards And to be heard is her heart Heaving heavily within.

For the language to remain a veritable mode of expression for the deepest thoughts and feelings and an effective vehicle of their communication, both these aspects must grow and develop in unison. But caused by pedagogy, careerism, desire to migrate to the greener pastures for making the best of globalization, privatization, and liberalization, Punjabi has lost both its expressive and communicative potential. This signifies the impending debacle of Punjabi from which not even the Almighty can salvage it: In a situation of this sort Only God may save my language.

How can even God be the savior? Should no prospect of its rejuvenation be entertained? Is there no alternative to restore Punjabi to its earlier pedestal to be explored?

The poet is not altogether pessimistic, but it is not wholly optimistic either: No, no thus will not die my language, This is not how a language dies, Due to some words gone extinct Does not die a language. If not God Himself, Will side with her the mentors, Sufis, saints, fakirs, poets Rebels, lovers, heroes.


Only when they cease to be, Shall die my language. It may happen otherwise even, In face of suicidal challenges, Landed in homicidal situations, May indeed get replenished, More living may get my language. Thus contemporary Punjabi poetry, written on sites provided by social reality in Punjab, is largely concerned with empowering those rendered powerless through residual biases coming from the past, dominant terror that stalked the land for two decades almost and an emergent play of globalization, eroding all that remains of cultural heritage.

Some poets writing from these sites also do not look askance at the changes that globalization is doubly causing in Punjab through the intervention of capital from abroad, the flight of native capital to the foreign countries, an increasing incidence of illegal migration, and the dominance of the foreign visual media. In this regard, mention has already been made of two significant poets, Jaswant Deed and Ambrish, who find these changes not only desirable, but essential as well.

They are not alone in according acceptance to such changes for several other poets are also doing the same. Besides them, there is not a lack of those who have adopted celebratory stance to such changes, particularly as they result in uninhibited expression of sexual desires. In their view, the Other is invariably the young female whose personality does not go beyond her sexual parts.

His gaze is not only consuming, but self-consuming as well. The female also feels that she is to be gazed at, consumed, and, only for this, sought after.


The significant poet, writing from the site bearing these contours, is Savi, whose collections have so far proved quite sensational. Dehi-Naad Sound of Body and Kameshvari are his collections worthy of mention in this regard.

The following extract from his second work, thus articulates his feeling: Is it sex That takes me close to you?

To reflect on you Frame you in front, That turns me into a vehicle Of sex and desire. What is all this, What precedes all? Sex or your touch? This is transfer of the experience of sex into the ideology of sexuality, the shift of its concrete intensity to palpable, but all the same, titillating abstraction.

Poets, writing on Punjabi life from places other than the Punjab, cover this ideology, with a gloss drawn from the ancient Indian ethos, the Sanskrit classics, and the Western media, that the poems they compose tend to impart a sense of inebriation.

However, the discriminating reader cannot help feeling that this inebriating feeling is of perfume, artificially manufactured rather than of fragrance, naturally coming from flowers. Is it because the experience of Punjabi life, excruciatingly feeling powerless, but anxiously waiting to be empowered, is none of their concern?

Four poets deserve to be considered in this regard. First is Mohanjit, whose mystery of diction and the devices to employ it are very praiseworthy indeed.

He puts this mastery invariably at the service of a double strategy, i. Sanskrit classics reveled in its excellence that, partly under the influence of the Romantic poetry of the nineteenth century, became popular with Indian poets, particularly those who avoided confrontation with the colonial rule or did not regard it worth the trouble. When a poet like Mohanjit has recourse to the same strategy, it only means that experience is being covered with a gloss, inebriating, but not subversive at all.

The following extract from his much-admired collection, Ohle vichch Ujiara Light in the Shade , is a case in point: Your single glance reflects light of numerous flames In all my flames gets reflected only your form.

There is then Satinder Noor who claims to be the chief protagonist of love poetry in Punjabi. The love he extols and exalts in absolute terms is not of experience faced with impediments from various quarters, but holds out the hope of dignity and integrity in life. Only by seeming cosmetic, scented, inebriating, does it work its wonder.

The following lines are quite illustrative in this regard: Having loved you In all your wholeness Tejwant S. So close to the absolute is it that no human concern can get close to it. No poetic device can give a feel of it. To visualize it confronting the social impediments is to devalue it. Only alleged friendship can provide a measure of it, but very inadequately, for with the touch of friendliness, it will blow into thin air.

Whenever we meet, For me he changes into a shair I, a ghazal for him. The last one to be considered is Manmohan, who tries to subsume philosophical and ethical dimensions into those of the mythical and ritualistic sort. For example, there is a poem by him beginning with the line, ad agg jugad agg Fire was at the beginning and fire has been through the ages.

When he foregoes the temptation of glossing over and limits himself to the portrayal of the situation, he is poetic and persuasive. To give an example: Walls, obstructing from doors Or blocking the minds Do create fractures, within and without. In compositions coming from afar, both these paradigms are sometimes worked out with a vengeance.

Succumbing neither to nostalgia nor disenchantment, Punjab appears to Amarjit Chandan from afar: That world is like this one, In some ways, unlike, as well. So picturesque is that Looking beautiful That actually is not so. There all that occurs Which never happens here. Making it as the addressee, he has this to hold in counterpoint: Where are you, O History, Or omniscient, you have become ignorant Subservient to the State Servant of the Rich, Of your inner perversion You have ended up as the slave.

In Varinder Parihar, it is the ecological concern that goes beyond the conventional love of nature. His book entitled Nature contains disturbing pieces: Trees speak to the human who hears nothing, A human can hardly hear his own voice.

Even if you want to hear the trees, Strike its body hard with an axe Lend your ear to the deep stroke Then listen to the blood flowing And the cold that spreads around. In his Chup Chupite Chetra Charhia Chetar Started Quietly , Sukhpal reflects upon all the intricacies, distractions, and distortions tearing life apart.

The wisdom of humankind leads to weariness, disease, and death: brethren rob and murder brethren and fill the day with blood. If the interlocutor sought to grasp it through the prism of the philosophy of the age, the poetic discourse thus forged acquired all the more relevance.

This is the primordial way of grasping experience in which all lie as an indivisible whole. The cultural patrimony that under political compulsions was moving away from the Punjabi idiom, established its proximity through the efforts primarily of Chatrik, and secondarily of Kirpa Sagar and others.

Her poetry was shown as the female mirror image of the male poetry of Mohan Singh. As these are published in book form, they will shed further light on the richness of his poetry.
