Hassan Koozagar .. Read By Usman GhaniReads ..

“Hassan Koozagar” recited by Usman Ghani is a worthy reference for those who aspire to learn the art of narration and story telling.. A voice so potent in expression of varying kinds that one doesn’t need a visual play to gather the minutest of emotions..


usmanName: Usman Ghani
Poem: Hassan Koozagar
Poet: Noon Meem Rashid

Audio Notes From Usman: This is one of favorites. The poem speaks of a potter who has seen his beloved randomly in a bazar after nine years. “Hassan Koozagar” has a historical importance as well since it was the first “Aazad Nazm” of Urdu literature. Aazad Nazm is a poem without rhymes and meter. It simply depends on its rhythm and flow for its beauty.

    Though it wasn’t possible to understand this, word by word but you rendition, Usman Miyan, made it possible for me to catch the ‘rooh’ of this sweet poem !

    The pain & ‘tadap’ of Hasan caught my heart . How I wish I knew Urdu well . But as they say…… language is no bar when it comes to express love !

    Too good ! God bless you . Ishwar aap ki aawaz mein is ‘Ras’ ko barqaraar rakhe .
