Faiz Ahmad Faiz was a Pakistani poet who was nominated for Nobel Prize in 1984. He rejected the idea of “art for art’s sake” and chose a difficult path of revolution in his country. His commitment to humanism, democracy, and justice made his life terrible. He was imprisoned and tortured by the military government, but he didn’t quit the poetry of love for the country




“All good books are the same and when you read a good book you realize it’s already passed on to you and then that book becomes yours whatever good or bad or enjoyable in it. There are evils, sadness, people, towns and seasons there, they all become yours.” (Ernest Hemingway)
