Welcome to Seerat.ca
Dear Waryam ji,
It has been a long time since we communicated with each other. However I
keep track of you and your activities. Facebook is a great messenger. You
know my problem of not writing in Punjabi. I can not type it.
I read the latest issue of Seerat. I must say that Seerat has become one
of the foremost literary magazines in Punjabi. And I am saying that
without hesitation and with all due respect to Dr. Raghbir Singh and
Sirjana even though I have been associated with Sirjana from its early
days. Seerat has attained such stature because of your hard work and
Now to the content of Seerat that I want to talk about. I have read
attentively and thoughtfully the two articles on SS Misha and Dr.
Harbhajan Singh. I don't know Gurdial Bal but I knew Misha very well and I
spent some really good and enjoyable moments with him. His death while
unfortunate was tragic as well.Mr. Bal has brought out the best and
deepest of Misha in his article. Misha was a great poet of his times even
though he was not recognized as such by his contemporaries. Mr. Bal has
depicted his character and poetic prowess truthfully and brilliantly.
The article on and about Dr. Harbhajan Singh by Principal Sarwan Singh is
one only he can write. I can not find words worthy of the writing
capabilities of Principal Sarwan Singh. I have followed his writings since
the sixties. You wrote an article about him where you called him Ucha
Buraj of Punjabi prose. And he truly is. All I can say is that his article
has prompted me to read Harbhajan Singh. In the article he quotes another
writer that when Harbhajan Singh wrote about him (Sarwan Singh) he broke
the pen. I would say that after writing about Harbhajan Singh Principal
Sahib has broken his pen.
Now I want the contact information about both of these writers either e
mail or phone number or both. Can you please send those to me.
Congratulations once again to you and your team. You can print this letter
in the next issue of Seerat if you so desire and find it worthy of the
standard of Seerat. It can be edited.
