Urdu verse makes inroads into Poland

Urdu verse is making inroads into Poland with the ghazals of 20th century poets like Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Jan Nissar Akhtar being translated into Polish.

Janusz Krzyzowski and Surender 'Zahid', an Indian poet based here, who earlier translated 'Mir Taqi Mir' and 'Mirza Ghalib', have published an anthology of modern Urdu poets, which also includes ghazals of Firaq Gorakhpuri, Qateel Shifai, Ibn-e-Insha, Pravin Shakir, Bashir Badr and Nida Fazli.
