Urdu is rich because of its mixed linguistic heritage. It evolved as an argot - a mixture of Turkish, Arabic, and Persian that was spoken by the Muslim soldiers in invaders' armies, combined with the Sanskrit, Hindi, Braj and Dakhni spoken by the Indian soliders in Meghal military encampments.In this new collection, he and Kamna Prasad have brought together their favourite Urdu verse for ‘lovers of the Urdu language’ and all who love poetry.Celebrating The Best of Urdu Poetry by Khushwant Singh is a collection Urdu poetry. The book contains poems written by both famous and relatively unknown poets from over the past 200 years. In one of the poems in this book, Rashid asks Allah for a small gift. If he writes his will in Urdu, he wants his son to be able to read it. The readers who love Urdu verses and those who are seeking an introduction to Urdu poetry may find this collection interesting.COMMENTS: ‘I Would Unhesitatingly recommend (this book) to those who are familiar with Urdu poetry, and, even more importantly, to those who are not but would like to be.’--- Pavan K.
