This is Capt. Lal, our old time neighbor back in Rohtak, India, reciting a very old (may be as old as him) Urdu poem from his college days. The man is a World War II Veteran, a former All India Radio Director, a Lawyer, and a connoisseur of Urdu Poetry. I recorded this during my Summer 2005 trip to India.

If you happen to be an ardent fan of Urdu Poetry, and by luck know who the poet is, be kind enough to leave a comment!
