StoryJam Kahani: Rajsinhasan Daavandol by Ali Sardar Jafri

बोल! अरी ओ धरती बोल!, राज सिंघासन डाँवाडोल

It is believed that when a drunk Majaz recited his Nazm 'Bol ari O Dharti Bol' at a Mushaira, Hansraj Rahbar teased him, 'Majaz Bhai, did you compose this Nazm drunk?', Majaz replied, 'I drank afterwards, too'.

That may well be one story. But there’s another. Told eloquently by his friend and well known writer and poet, Ali Sardar Jafri.

Jafri’s book “Lucknow ki Paanch Raatein'' is a veritable history of the time when India was rising in a final wave against British rule. The growing creative and political influence of the Progressive Writers Movement was helping propel the struggle for Independence. A new dawn breaking for both the country and its literature.
