Beete Hue Din Kuch Aise Hain

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!
