munir niazi man of letters .us bewafa ka Shehar hai
Renowned man of letters Munir Niazi, who composed unforgettable film songs like:

- us bewafa ka Shehar hai aur ham hain dosto...
- ja apni hasraton peh aansoo baha ke so ja... and
- zinda rahen to kya hai jo mar jaen ham to kya...

passed away after suffering cardiac arrest on Tuesday night on December 26, 2006. He was 83.
Kuj unj vi rahwan okhian san
kuj gall wich gham da touq vi si
kuj Shehar de lok vi zalim san
kuj sanu marn da shouq vi si
... Munir Niazi

Munir Niazi, whose original name was Munir Ahmad, was born in Khanpur April 9, 1923. He had his early education in Khanpur but moved to S.E. College in Bahawalpur for his intermediate. He did his BA from Dyal Singh College.

Munir Niazi, who settled in Sahiwal following the partition of the subcontinent, published a weekly called “Saat Rung” in 1949. He became associated with what was then the country’s budding film industry for some time and penned a number of lyrical poems for movies. The late Nasim Begum sang the song “Us Bewafa Ka Shehar Hey” for the 1962 film “Shaheed”. The song, which was put to music by versatile composer Rasheed Attre, catapulted both the singer and the poet to stardom.

Munir Niazi also wrote articles for newspapers, magazines and radio. In 1960, he established a publishing house called “Al-Misal”.

Among his famous anthologies of Urdu poems are:

- Taiz Hawa aur Tanha Phool
- Jungle Mein Dhanak
- Dushmanoon ke Darmiyan Sham
- Mah-i-Munir
- Bewafa ka Shehar
- Safaid hawa ki Hawa
- Syah shab ka Samundar
- Chhe rangeen Darwazey
- Aghaz-e-zamastan
- Sa'at Sayyar

In the Punjabi language, he authored:

- Safar di Raat
- Char Chup Cheezan and
- Rasta Dasan Walay Tarey

Munir Niazi, a master of poetic imagery, was bold enough to experiment with many genres of poetry and is credited with creating a distinct style, rhythm and diction. Mythology, nostalgia, haunting romance and a belief in the supernatural are some of those themes that find frequent mention in his poems.
