Kaifi Azmi: Poems | Nazms New & Selected TranslationsSelected and co-translated bySudeep SenBloomsbury India224 pagesRs 499AdvertisingKaifi Azmi, like love, is a many splendoured thing, and he is being discovered in a hundred ways in his centenary year. There is a personal touch, too — a tribute from a contemporary poet who, while never having met him, established a unique rapport with him. However, there was much more that he brought to the world with the passion he displayed for all aspects of life. So what is the last page in English books, is usually the first page in Urdu books. However, Azmi, whether read in translation from the left or in its original from the right, does more than flicker.
