This book is a compilation of Urdu poetry written by Raj Kumar ‘Qais’ over the period 1993-2005. Titled ‘Saihraa Saihraa’ --- which means ‘desert after desert’ --- it conjures up the unending wanderings of ‘Qais’, the fabled lover of the Arabian damsel Laila. It comprises about ninety Ghazals and about thirty qit’aat that depict a variety of moods experienced by a lover and are expressed in a manner that directly touches the heart of the reader.

This book has been reviewed by a number of critics of Urdu poetry. In their words, the compositions presented here flow effortlessly and display qualities that provide glimpse after glimpse into the idiom of DaaGh Dehlvi, lyricism of Akhtar Sheerani and cultural nuances of Firaq Gorakhpuri. It is hoped that the reader of this book will enjoy those glimpses to his/her heart’s content.

About the Author

The author, professionally known by the surname Pathria, is a theoretical physicist who taught at several universities in India, Canada and the USA over the years 1958-2010. Throughout his scientific career, he maintained a keen interest in Urdu language and Urdu poetry. He read numerous works of stalwarts of Urdu poetry and imbibed in his soul both the spirit and the methodology of this delightful art.

In 1993, when Pathria was approaching retirement from active Physics, he started writing Urdu poetry himself --- under the penname ‘Qais’. He recited his compositions at a number of poetic get-togethers and drew considerable applause from his peers. His poetic output, over a period of some twelve years, resulted in the publication of his first book on Urdu poetry towards the end of the year 2005.
