New Delhi,

The Vice President of India Shri M. Hamid Ansari released a five volume set of books entitled “Khirman” based on the collection of verses of Late Shri Muztar Khairabadi at a function here today. These verses have been compiled by his grand son and noted lyricist Shri Javed Akhtar, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha).

Addressing on the occasion, the Vice President said that this five volume set of poetry written by noted Urdu poet Late Muztar Khairabadi entitled “Khirman” is a very valuable collection. He said that normally he has seen Shri Javed Akhtar Ji sitting mostly silently in Rajya Sabha but today he has shown his unique skill. He recalled that sometimes back he visited an Art Gallery in Delhi where a book by an artist cum activist was released. That book was banned and destroyed by Britishers and the only one copy of that book which he gifted to his mother was available later on. Afterwards the book was re-printed. That is why all old manuscripts and documents should be properly preserved. He recited a poem on the occasion – “Zanabe khizr raahe ishq men ladne se kya haasil ; Main apna rasta le loon, tum apna rasta le lo.” He congratulated Shri Javed Akhtar and all his associates for briging out such a valuable set of books.
