Urdu poetry From Wikipedia

Urdu poetry ( اردو شاعری, Urdu Shayari) is one of the most dominant and prominent poetries of times and has many different colours & types. It has generated its root from Arabic and mainly from Persian and is an important part of Indian culture. Urdu Poetry has two main types i.e. Ghazal (Urdu: غزل) and Nazm (Urdu: نظم).

Like other languages, the history of Urdu Poetry does not have a firm starting point and shares origins and influences with other linguistic traditions within the Urdu-Hindi-Hindustani mix. Literary figures as far back as Kabir (1440 – 1518) and even Amir Khusro (1253-1325 AD) deserve mention as influences later Urdu poets draw on for inspiration as well as intellectual and linguistic sources. Meer, Dard, Ghalib, Iqbal and Faiz Ahmed Faiz are among the greatest poets of Urdu. The tradition is centered in the Indian subcontinent. Following the Partition of India in 1947, it found major poets and scholars residing primarily in modern Pakistan and India. Mushairas (or poetic expositions) are today held in almost every major metropolitan area in the world. Over this period, Urdu poets have produced a large number of primarily poetic works.
