Author Bio: Naseer Ahmed Nasir is one of the most eminent, distinct, cultured and thought provoking poets from Pakistan. He is considered as a trend setter poet of modern Urdu poems among his contemporaries. He has a poetic creed of his own, a fine sensibility and a gift of reflective abstraction.

His poetry has been translated into various international languages such as English, Spanish, Russian, Romanian, Uzbek, Hindi and Persian along with some regional languages and has several poetry collections to his credit. He is also editor of an Urdu literary magazine 'Tasteer'. Naseer Ahmed Nasir was born on 1st April 1954 in a nondescript village Nagrian in Gujrat district of Punjab, Pakistan.
