Sarwat Hussain

Sarwat Hussain (1949-1996) was born and brought up in Karachi. He taught Urdu literature at various government colleges. His control over Urdu language, as well as the modernity of his ideas, made him one of the most distinguished poets of his time. Two collections of his work have been published so far, Aadhe Sayyare Par (1987) and Khakdaan which was published posthumously after his tragic death in a train accident.
