What we're about

We are a set of people passionate about poetry in all forms and shapes. We tend to instill poetry in everything in life. Remembering a verse or two when rain falls, finding rhyme and verses amidst mad rattling of business meetings and remembering chachaa ghalib’s line or two, suited for almost every occasion in life. We intend to share this madness with like-minded people, and at the same time, extend the ‘infection’ to some who are prone to it. We look forward to share the little that we feel and comprehend in poetry, and learn a lot more in the process. A poem gives you wings, takes you on a voyage, a parwaz, to an unexplored world at times, or providing a new perception of the known vistas at others. It can transport you back in time, to a different era altogether, or it can take you to a world where human feelings are same beyond all caste, color and boundaries.. And then some parwaz will make you soar high, sit on a skyscraper and see your world with a ‘bird eye view’, making it all suddenly look a lot more meaningful. At Parwaz, we share our poetic voyages with you and look forward to hearing your journeys via poems too.

मैं हर एक पल का शायर हूँ - Celebrating Sahir Ludhianvi

जंग तो ख़ुद ही एक मसला है
जंग क्या मसलों का हल देगी
आग और ख़ून आज बख़्शेगी
भूक और एहतियाज कल देगी
इसलिए ऐ शरीफ़ इंसानों
जंग टलती रहे तो बेहतर है
आप और हम सभी के आँगन में
शमा जलती रहे तो बेहतर है

--Sahir Ludhianvi

The poet who penned these lines, Sahir Ludhianvi, is gone for more than four decades, but the relevance of these verses, and many more of his verses, remains! A poet who got his first compilation published at the age of 22 and became the soul of 'mushairas' in the town; who had an arrest warrant in his name for his explosive writing, but who has also written some of the most soul touching sensitive ones too; and who subsequently went on to become one of the most loved lyricist too in Hindi cinema. Sahir Ludhianvi was all this and a lot more.!

About Parwaz:
In today's fast pace times we tend to place literary arts at a higher pedestal and assume that it is something that one should address with all attention, and hence instead of refreshing, it is perceived to be a draining activity. Parwaz is aimed to break that myth, and via our 'baithaks' we bring literature including poems, poets, short stories and anything that has a literary value, closer to people's heart. And with this, we want to reinstate that literary arts provides you with the most refreshing form of entertainment. It feeds the mind and nourishes the soul, and if our participants are to be believed, it proves to be one of the best ways to spend an evening !
We have conducted over 50 baithaks commemorating literary stalwarts like Ghalib, Mir, Sahir, Zafar, Tagore, Ismat Chugtai, Gulzar, Javed Akhtar and Harivansh Rai Bachchan to name a few.
