My grandfather at Jamia Nizamia, Delhi
when found himself a failure,
he migrated to Medina whereat,
he obtained his dream's lovely allure,
the degree of Shaikh-ul-Hadith there
(the final degree of a Muslim Schollar) .
A pretty rose after a long endure.

    When reading Altar Jawad's poems, I am inhaling a special fragrance which I can't identify. Perhaps it is rose scent from the garden of Urdu poetry, magically transposed into English. Perhaps it comes from the courtyard of a Sufi shrine. Perhaps it is a breath of wind, sanctified by love, which has blown through the quarters of common people. I want read more to gather clues about where this wind came from!

    A beautiful poem that recognizes the many
    wonders of existence, nature and above all,
    God Almighty.
    Very inspiring and wonderfully crafted.

    Dear Akhtar Jawadji, I am really touched by your poems you wrote in response to my Odia poem' Nua Barsa' and Odia translation of Gitanjali ( poem -7.) .It is not how far you could understand my poem in Odia language, but it shows your love for my poem, it shows your love for poetry, your desire to understand other people, other language and other culture and over all your humanistic attitude..I am so grateful to have met poets like you.Thank you so much.

    Absolutely Akhtar Jawad is a talented poet
    Knowledge is his strength, all friends love him,
    Honourable he is, Kumarmani Mahakul honours him
    Truthfulness is Jawad's inner value,
    Always he has love towards society,
    Responsibility and charity are with him.

    Jeering remarks he gives sometimes
    Actually he has capacity to tackle problems
    Wonderful skill he has to pen nice poems
    Astutely he can compose in any subject
    Dearer and nearer he is for all, we feel him ever.

Best Poem of Akhtar Jawad

A Teen Aged Widow

When the morning star,
Sees first sun ray,
And disappears,
In grief and distress,
Gives a parting kiss,
To the nude lady,
Who takes her bath,
Every early morning,
In the sea of fire,
And once again,
Like a virgin in tact,
Likes a teen-aged beauty,
Flying high in sky,
The fine wet grass,
Licking milky foot,
Ask birds to rise,
And sing their song,
Asks flowers and buds,
To change night suits,
And moves to the bank,
And sits nimble footed,
Partly on the earth,
And partly in river,
A cold, pleasant wind, ...
