Today marks the birth of one of Pakistan's most beloved minds; Faiz Ahmed Faiz, an impressive man to say the least.

A recognised poet at 18, one of the founders of the Progressive Writers Association at 24, a colonel in his thirties, editor of a national daily at 37 and a Lenin Prize winner at 50. Even 34 years after his death, Faiz is gone but never forgotten.

Here are a few ghazals and nazms based on works penned by the literary genius himself:

Hum Dekhenge by Iqbal Bano

Nahi Nigah mai Manzil by Abida Parveen

Gulon Mein Rang Bhare by Mehdi Hassan

Mujhse Pehli Si Mohabbat by Noor Jahan

Aaj Bazaar Mein by Nayyara Noor
