Google Doodle remembers Poetess Parveen Shakir on her 67th birthday

On the 67th birthday of Pakistani poet, Parveen Shakir Google Doodle paid tribute to the poetess. She was born on November 24, 1952, in Karachi. She was a pioneer who breaks the stereotype by including female experience in her poetry. She was the first female poetess who expressed the real emotions of young girls in her poetry.

Throughout her career, Parveen Shakir continued to publish remarkable books of her poetry, including Sad-Barg (Marsh Marigold), Khud Kalami (Talking To Oneself), Inkaar (Denial), Kaf-e-Aina (The Mirror’s Edge), and Mah-e-Tamaam (Full Moon), as referenced to the Doodle art.

She released her first collection of the poem titled ‘Fragrance (Khushbu). She won the Adamjee literary award in 1976. For her contribution to Urdu poetry she was honored with president’s award for the pride of performance in 1990.

Google doodle tweeted on her birthday: “Writing from a young woman’s perspective, Pakistani poet Parveen Shakir had an exceptionally decorated career. Her distinguished contributions to Urdu poetry earned her one of the highest civil awards in Pakistan.”

Parveen’s car hit with a bus while she was on her way to Islamabad. She died in an accident. It is a great loss in the Urdu poetry world.
