About The Book

جو ن ایلیا کی شاعری آج کے اس دور میں محتاج تعارف نہیں۔ ا ن کی شاعری نے دنیا کو شاعری کے ایک نئے ڈھنگ سے روشناس کرایا اور لفظو ں کو ایک نیا پیراہن عطا کر کے لوگوں کو حیران کر دیا۔ انہوں نے اپنے زمانے کی روش سے ہٹ کر ترقی پسندیت ، جدیدیت اور وجودیت جیسی تحریکوں سے ہٹ کر اور ذات و کائنات کی باتوں کو چھوڑ کر ، میر و مومن کے بعد جو روایت ادھوری رہ گئی تھی اسے ایک بار پھر سے زندہ کیا اور پھر سے عشق و محبت جیسے موضوعات کو اپنی شاعری کا عنصر بنایا اور غم ہجراں ، وصال اور درد و الم سے شرابور نظمیں، غزلیں و قطعات صفحہ قرطاس پر اتار دئے۔کہیں کہیں اہل زمانہ اور معشوق پر ان کی جھنجھلاہٹ صاف نظر آتی ہے اور جب یہ ناراضگی اور جھنجھلاہٹ ان کی شاعری کا حصہ بنتی ہے تو وہ کلاسیکی عشقیہ شاعری نہ ہوکر زمین پر سانس لیتے ہوئے مرد و عورت کی محبت و نفرت کی شاعری بن جاتی ہے۔ وہ ہمیشہ تلخ و شیرین حالات میں اپنے محبوب کو سامنے رکھ کر دو ٹوک بات کرتے ہیں اور ہواوں،بادلوں، پھول ، خوشبو کو اپنی بات پہونچانے کے لئے نہیں استعمال کرتے۔ "لیکن" جون کا شعری مجموعہ ہے جس میں جون کی خوبصورت غزلیات کے ساتھ ساتھ ان کی بہترین نظمیں اور قطعیات شامل ہیں۔ جون ایلیا کو پڑھنے والے اور پسند کرنے والے اس سے اپنی پیاس بجھا سکتے ہیں۔

About The Author

Syed Jaun Asghar (1931-2002), popularly known as Jaun Elia, was born in Amroha where he received his early education under the guidance of his father, Shafiq Hasan Elia. He acquired the degrees of Adeeb Kamil (Urdu), Kamil (Persian), and Fazil (Arabic). He migrated from India in 1957 and settled in Karachi where he worked at the Ismailia Association of Pakistan supervising writing and compilation from 1963 to 1968. Following this, he remained associated with the Urdu Dictionary Board. He also edited Aalami Digest with Zahida Hena.

Jaun Elia was deeply interested in the disciplines of history, philosophy, and religion. This gave a certain touch of otherness to his personality and poetry. His poetry is remarkable for its effortless expression and immediacy of appeal. While he published his first anthology Shaayed (1991) during his lifetime, Other poetry collections Yaani (2003) Gumaan (2004), Lekin (2006), Goyaa (2008), and a book in prose titled Farnood (2008) were published posthumously by his trustworthy companion Khalid Ahmed Ansari. Among these Yaani was initially published by Al Hamd Publishers but they republished it with Khalid's help and with inclusion of 80 additional verses.

Khalid also compiled Jaun's prose work titled 'FARNOOD,' which Jaun had been contributing to various magazines from 1958 until his demise in 2002.
Furthermore, Khalid compiled Jaun's epic poem 'RAMOOZ,' consisting of 12 tablets, as well as a book titled "MaiN Ya MaiN" which contains articles about Jaun Elia, written by various individuals, his friends, his acquaintances and various prominent literary figures. This book gives a deep insight about Jaun's life and his works and is a very important document for those who are interested in knowing Jaun Elia more. 
Currently, Khalid is working on Jaun's long-awaited poetic collection, titled 'KYUN.'

Jaun had also collected his letters to Zahida Hina to whom he was married but they had separated later. Elia had also translated Kitab-ut-Tawwaseen and Jauhar-e-Salqui by Mansoor Hallaj which remain unpublished. The government of Pakistan honoured him with the prestigious award of excellence for his services to literature.
