 Mahmood Sham
معروف صحافی، شاعر و دانشور جناب محمود شام کا تازہ مجموعہ کلام "جہاں تاریخ روتی ہے" شائع ہوگیا ہے۔ محمود شام راجپورہ ریاست پٹیالہ میں 1940 میں پیدا ہوئے، 1947 میں پاکستان ہجرت کی، پہلا پڑاؤ جھنگ میں ڈالا، وہیں رہتے ادب کی طرف مائل ہوئے۔ ابتدائی تعلیم جھنگ میں اور پھر لاہور کا قصد۔ گورنمنٹ کالج لاہور میں ایم اے فلسفہ میں داخلہ، کالج میگزین راوی کے مدیر بھی رہے۔ پھر ایک اور ہجرت، اس مرتبہ عالم میں انتخاب کراچی تھا۔ پھر یوں ہوا کہ یہ شہر محمود شام کو راس آگیا، ملک کے سب سے بڑے اخبار سے برسوں وابستہ رہے، اس دوران ان کے اخبار کے ساتھی انہیں ملکوں ملکوں ڈھونڈتے تھے لیکن شام صاحب نایاب نہ ہوئے، گھوم پھر کر اور عالمی لیڈران کے انٹرویو لے کر رخ سوئے کراچی ہوتا تھا۔ پھر ایک روز صحافتی حلقوں میں یہ خبر حیرت سے سنی گئی کہ شام صاحب نے ادارہ جنگ چھوڑ دیا ہے، لیکن چونکہ ثبات ایک تغیر کو ہے زمانے میں، سو یہ بھی ہوا۔ اپنی ویب سائٹ بنانا بیرونی دنیا و احباب سے رابطے کا آسان ترین طریقہ ہے، شام صاحب نے اس جانب بھی توجہ دی ہے: نمونہ کلام ,

ماں یا بنجر پہاڑی

مرے بیٹے کو جس نے گولیاں ماریں
تشدد سے بدن کاٹا
اکہری انگلیاں توڑیں
مرے بچے کو بوری جس نے پہنائی

مجھے بھی اس سے ملوا دو
میں دیکھوں اس کے خوں آلود ہاتھوں کو
کھلی سفاک آنکھوں کو

بھری ممتا سے پھر پوچھوں
کہ اس کی ماں مرے جیسی کوئی عورت ہے
یا بنجر پہاڑٰی ہے

---------------

اڑتی رہتی ہے دور دور خوشی
حادثے ساتھ ساتھ چلتے ہیں
خواہش انقلاب میں یوں تو
یار لوگوں کے دل مچلتے ہیں

--------------

راہبر وہ ہی رہیں راہ دکھائیں ہم لوگ
وہ تو معذور ہیں یہ فرض نبھائیں ہم لوگ

Mansoora Ahmad: Mansoora Ahmad was closely associated with Ahmad Nadeem Qasmi and Fanoon. Later, she published her own magazine Montaaj,  notable poet but her exceptionally deep connection with Ahmad Nadim Qasmi (she was his adopted daughter) turned her into a formidable figure of our literary politics. Many were offended by her and Parveen Shakir was one of them. Many other made her target of their unkind criticism when they failed to get Qasmi Sahib’s literary and social patronage. One of our best known critics and scholars, Professor Fateh Mohammad Malik who is also the rector of the International Islamic University of Islamabad, recently joined the critics who criticised Mansoora for Qasmi’s aloofness. Mansoora Ahmad’s years in the wake of Qasmi’s death passed in unhappy and heavy-hearted loneliness. But she was an unyielding woman and braved the unnerving circumstances. Mansoora died in August 2011 at Hafiazabad in Lahore, Pakistan. Here two poems of Mansoora Ahmad; (Muslim Saleem, December 22, 2011)



1- Yaad Hai?

Yaad hai ek pooran maashi meiN
ChaaNd hamaarey kitney paas utar aaya tha
Ham se kitni baataiN ki theeN
Apnay rath pe kitni sair karaayi thi
Ham ko kitnay chaa-o se, apna mehmaan banaaya tha

Ab bhi chaaNd meri dunya meiN aa jaata hai
HairaaN hairaaN aaNkhoN se takta rehta hai
Aur jaisey kuchh kahtay kahtay ruk jaata hai
Agli pooran maashi par tum aisa karna
Pal do pal ko aa hi jaana
ChaaNd ki ungli thaam k, apnay ghar lay jaana



2- Yaad NahiN

Yaad nahiN ye kab soacha tha
LahroN ka jab raila umDay
Saahil toa.D k baahar aayey
Basti basti Doobti jaayey

Jab ye lahraiN band samaiTey
RoashniyoN ka raila aayey
Jag mag see phailaata jaayey

Yaad nahiN ye kab soacha tha
Laikin itna yaad hai, us pal
Kitna TooT k tum yaad aayey

حسن کو حسن بنانے میں مرا ہاتھ بھی ہے
آپ مجھ کو نظر انداز نہیں کرسکتے
عشق وہ کار مسلسل ہے کہ ہم اپنے لیے
ایک لمحہ بھی پس انداز نہیں کر سکتے

... آج ان خوب صورت اشعار کے خالق رئیس فروغ کی اکتیسویں برسی ہے ۔

رئیس فروغ نے اتر پردیش کے شہر مرادآباد میں 1926 میں ایک دینی گھرانے میں جنم لیا . آپ کے والد کا نام محمّد یوسف تھا. رئیس فروغ نے شاعری کی ابتدا مرادآباد میں ہی کر دی تھی. 1950 میں پاکستان آنے بعد معاشی بندھنوں اور اپنی اہلیہ کی بیماری کی وجہ سے شاعری کو زیادہ وقت نہ دے سکے .
۔۔۔۔۔ 1965 میں جنگ کے زمانے میں بیشمار...قومی اور ملّی نغمے لکھے . جن میں شاہین صفت یہ تیرے جوان اے فضائے پاک ان غازیوں پہ سایہ فگن ہے خدائے پاک وغیرہ شامل ہیں.
رئیس فروغ نے ابتدا میں کے پی ٹی میں ملازمت کی، اس کے بعد وہ ریڈیو پاکستان سے منسلک ہو گئے.
ریڈیو پر انہوں نے بیشمار گیت ، ڈرامے اور فیچر لکھے . جن میں اسٹوڈیو نمبر 9 اور حامد میاں کے ہاں بہت مشہور ہیں.
ریڈیو پر ان کے بےشمار گیت مشور ہوئےجن میں

اے وادی مہران اے وادی مہران
میں تجھ پر قربان ہو ،

دھرتی سے ہاریوں کو پھر مامتا ملی ہے
ماں جو بچھڑ گئی تھی بچوں سے آ ملی ہے، وغیرہ

اس کے ساتھ ساتھ انہوں نے پی ٹی وی پر بھی اپنے قلمی جوہر دکھاے. بزم لیلیٰ جس میں رونا لیلیٰ پرفارم کرتی تھیں ، اسکے تمام گیت رئیس فروغ نے لکھے . 1970 کی دہائی میں ٹی وی پر نغمے اور مزاحیہ خاکے تحریر کئے.
شعیب منصور کی ہدایات میں جھرنے پروگرام کے تمام گیت لکھے ، جسے عالمگیر، محمّد علی شہکی اور دیگر فنکاروں نے اپنی آواز سے سجایا۔۔۔۔
فہمیدہ نسرین کی ہدایات میں بچوں کے گیتوں کے پروگرام ہم سورج چاند ستارے کے تمام گیت رئیس فروغ نے لکھے . بعد میں اسے طاہر سنز نے کتابی شکل میں پیش کیا. اس کتاب پر رئیس فروغ کو رائٹرز گلڈ ایوارڈ سے نوازا گیا. بچوں کے یہ گیت بہت پسند کئے گئے چند مثالیں یہ ہیں :

ابّو کے ابّو دادا میاں اتنے بڑے جی ہاں جی ہاں ،

آباد ہے یادوں میں اسکول کا پہلا دن رہتا ہے خیالوں میں اسکول کا پہلا دن ،

گڑیا کی شادی، کلفٹن کی سیر ، وغیرہ شامل ہیں

فوک گلوکارہ ریشماں کا گیا ہوا گیت تو رئیس فروغ کی پی پہچان بن گیا
" میری ہم جولیان کچھ یہاں کچھ وہاں " . اسے آج کے پوپ گلوکار عاطف اسلم نے بھی گایا ہے
رئیس فروغ کی شاعری کی کتاب " رات بہت ہوا چلی " طباعت کے آخری مراحل میں تھی کہ 5 اگست 1982 کو ان کا انتقال ہوگیا .

پھول زمین پر گرا پھر مجھے نیند آ گئی
دور کسی نے کچھ کہا پھر مجھے نیند آ گئی
رات بہت ہوا چلی اور شجر بہت ڈرے
میں بھی ذرا ذرا ڈرا پھر مجھے نیند آ گئی

چمن میں ہر پنکھڑی بکھر کے کہے گی رودادِ قیدِ ہستی
بمقتضائے اصولِ فطرت ابھی تو منہ بند ہے کلی کا

 میرا آنسو تیری آنکھ سے ٹپکا ہے
جوگی رستہ بھول گیا تھا ڈیرے کا


 آج میں خود سے ملا ہوں طالب
آج   بھولا   ہوا   گھر   یاد   آیا
