Noor Muhammad Qureshi——– a breathing marvel!

Posted on: August 20, 2012


 

Noor means radiance. Can we see colors, rain, rainbow, flowers, and beauty of nature or the disaster of nature in its absence? No, we simply can’t.

Though Light has no figure but it gives form and color to everything that exists around us; in the sky, on the sky, in the depths of the oceans—–everywhere.

Noor Muhammad is like light. He portrays his heart felt experiences, good and aching, through his teaching, paintings, poetry, stories and calligraphy.

We too, see everything, but being not as sensitive, kindhearted, keen observer, creative and expressive like him, ignore and just pass by. He is a multifaceted humane human. He probes and picks the deep-seated ailments which are disregarded generally.

I am grateful to Majid, who introduced Noor to me through his books and brochure.  I had not known or heard of Noor before. But as I started reading his books Kachokay (pricks) his ardent observation of human nature started to unfolding.

I never read such a book earlier. It did prick me sharply. Honestly I felt ashamed of myself for being so unaware of the wounds that bleed that are caused by us, the society.

The second book is based on the tragedies of dreadful earthquake of 2005 in Kashmir and northern areas of Pakistan. Northern areas of Pakistan were known to be charismatically beautiful natural beauty. Breathtaking picturesque charm allured the tourists and the natives before October 2005. But it was brutally spoiled by the after effects of the earthquake.

Noor has very skillfully portrayed all in his poetry and paintings.

I translated some of his verses into English. And feel great pleasure that they are equally appreciated nationally and internationally.

He is diabetic. Got his toe mutilated in Liaquat National Hospital recently. I have not met him or seen him, but they way he talks to me on the phone are very cultured. May he live a long healthy life to enable us, to wipe tears of the ailing by his intuitive skillfulness?
