Maghar Charh Gaya Ae

Sohail Abid   /   November 15, 2014

It’s the 1st day of Maghar today. Let me share with you a poem from Fard Faqir (1720-1790)’s BaaraN Maaha.

BaaraN Maah (or Maaha) is a genre of Punjabi poetry comprising of 12 poems expressing the state, circumstances, plight of separation from the beloved in each of the 12 months of the year. With the changing weather outside, the poems chronicle the changes that happen inside: anticipation, agony, and melancholy.

We’ll share other poems from this BaaraN-Maaha in the first week of every upcoming month.
