Deep jis ka sirf mehellaat hi main jalay, Chand logon ki khushyon ko lay ker chalay, Wo jo saye main har maslihat kay palay; Aisay dastoor ko, Subh e bay noor ko, Main naheen maanta, Main naheen jaanta The following is the translation of the verses mentioned above in English. However, the people who know both Urdu and English know that this English translation is just an echo of the real poetry of Habib Jalib. It does not convey how good Habib Jalib was, as a poet. However, it conveys the idea in general. Whose light shines only in palaces, and carries the joys of only a few people That derives its strength from others' weaknesses; that system, like a dawn without light I refuse to acknowledge, I refuse to accept Habib Jalib was born in the Hoshiarpur, Punjab in 1928. He was named Habib Ahmed. However, he later preferred to be called Habib Jalib because Jalib was his Takhalus. (Takhalus is a penname that the Urdu poets usually use). Habib Jalib migrated to Pakistan when the India was portioned. Throughout his life, Habib Jalib remained a strong opponent of authoritarian governments and martial laws. He was very much in favor of the true democracy. Often he was put into prison because of speaking up. He was a leftist. He did not take active part in politics. Nevertheless, he was a member of the communist party. Habib Jalib was very vocal about the East Pakistan issue, which eventually converted into Dhaka Fall. He was deeply sad on the Dhaka Fall but always recognized that the Pakistan Army was too atrocious. The Bengalis simply had no choice and being separate was the best for them. He openly used to condemn Pakistanis for letting that part of the country go. Habib Jalib died in 1993 when he was only 64. Throughout his life, this man stood up for his principles and for the humanity. The philanthropists were very sad upon the demise of this great man. Qateel Shifai, who is another great Urdu poet, said the following famous verses on the demise of Habib Jalib. Habib Jalib will always remain alive in the hearts of the people. Apney sarey dard bhula kar auron ke dukh sehta tha Hum jub ghazlain kehtey thay wo aksar jail main rehta tha Aakhir kar chala hi gya wo rooth kar hum farzanon se Wo deewana jisko zamana Jalib Jalib kehta tha
