    Talook Chand Mehroom is one of the poets who wrote not just for the people, in fact he infused his feelings, deprivations and longings in his poetry. His poetry is not meant to claim any literary place in the Urdu literature. To me the sole purpose of his poetry is to give voice to his inner feelings and emotions.. Farooq Adil, Isa Khel, Pakistan
