Koi Sukha Hua Patta tha...
Nida Fazli reads his beautiful nazm valid ke vafat par (on the death of my father) here. He was unable to attend his father's funeral because he could not afford the journey.
You can also listen to his hamd (in praise Of God). Its certainly the quirkiest hamd one is likely to hear.
The South Asian Literary Recordings Project records the works of writers writing in different South Asian languages, in their own voice.
I have a fascination with poets reading their works. What a poet emphasizes, and what he/she does not, tells so much about how they interpret their own poems.
