Waris Shah

Waris Shah

Waris Shah (1706 – 1798) was a Punjabi poet, best-known for his seminal work Heer, based on the Punjabi love legend of Heer and her lover Ranjha. Heer is considered one of the quintessential works of classical Punjabi literature. His verse is a treasure-trove of Punjabi phrases, idioms and sayings. His minute and realistic depiction of details of Punjabi life and the political situation in the 1700s, remains unique. The amazing poetic mould that he worked within has not been bettered by any of his successors till date.
