One thought on “Purnam Allahabadi”

  1. According to some reports Purnam Allahabadi lived in a single room on Anarkali road. This indicates that he was not well off financially and was not paid adequately for his songs and Qawalis he wrote but he was the best urdu poet of Pakistan. His songs and Qawalis are as fresh today as they were written many decades ago and are listened by millions of people all over the world. The theme of the qawali, thoughts and words make a big difference. He died at a very young age of 69 and not sure if he survived by any sons, daughters or a wife. Its also reported that his family lived in Karachi. I like to know more about this great poet. If someone knows about his family in Karachi, Please do share with us. Thanks
