(May 12, 2020 was the 21st anniversary of the good and promising Urdu comic Syed Zameer Jafari who couldn’t be celebrated because of the Corona epidemic. This sketch of the deceased is being printed on this event. .)
If you keep in mind some individuals even after their demise, the smile on their face can’t be stopped. This “golden saying” of ours is 100% relevant to Hazrat Zameer Jafari. The pleasure of assembly him is as a lot now along with his creativeness, as a result of he was the embodiment of laughter, laughter and love.
I can't consider he doesn't exist. He had a really brief physique, a pointy voice, a pointy lower, lots of gossip, partying, a shiny pink face, a glowing cheek, a "expandable" brow, a curly hair on his head, an extended nostril, that But the glasses of thick glasses and thicker bows, the intelligence and mischievous cheerfulness within the eyes, clear shaven, lengthy stature, broad arms, protruding chest and even past that, the blessed stomach, for no matter function. Mention the facet. It could be higher to listen to slightly little bit of the story of the one who obtained the title of "Pir and Murshid" from his mates. Used to say;
God gave me this previous age
is out of date however my self made
Where did our mustaches go?
will ask this meeting
Mr. Pir! I don't provide you with something
Mann's phrases on the physique with this two three man fats
The skinny ("smart" individual in as we speak's terminology) didn’t meet their requirements of decency. Says ؎
Thin neck, skinny eyebrows, skinny lips, skinny waist
The sicker the person, the higher the person
Syed Zameer Jafari had a magnetic character. Whoever met him as soon as wished to see him once more. In the primary assembly, the individual in entrance would give the impression that they’ve recognized one another for years. Everyone was captivated by the dialog, the angle and the adoption. There was no vanity, fabrication and pleasure within the temper. The phrases have been stuffed with sweetness and pleasure. There was a pure tendency to be indignant, regardless of his small stature and erudition. That's why individuals have been drawn to him.
Krishna Chandra wrote in "Sixth Sense" that "every man keeps on identifying a certain kind of particle force with his personality. This force is either so enticing that every person, seeing a thousand evils, automatically pulls towards it, or it is so disgusting that every individual begins to hate it in spite of its most beautiful incarnation. And it all happens in the first moment when one person collides with another person. These particle waves are also strange, and perhaps that is why Einstein said that we are nothing more than ether waves. "That's what occurred to me after I first met him in 1997.
There was a literary occasion at Karachi Gymkhana and Jafari was within the viewers. Both chairs round them have been empty so I stated my identify and after slacking Alik I sat to his left. When he heard my identify, he was startled for a second after which requested me, "Aren't you the same SM Moin Qureshi who is writing in our" Punch "?" I confessed that I’m the identical within the Holy Prophet (noticed). "Moin" suffers whether or not you keep in mind or not. ("Punch" was the very best customary comedy journal in Pakistan with Shafiq-ur-Rehman, Col. Muhammad Khan, Sheikh Nazir and Jafari Sahib as its publishers.) Jafari Sahib was very comfortable to know this. For me too, this assembly was at least an honor. He stated that he used to learn Nachiz's writings in different literary magazines apart from "Punch". Now I needed to recite this poem in my coronary heart that ؎
O Zauq, to meet a long-time colleague
Better to satisfy the Messiah and Khidr
Taking benefit of the chance, I requested him, "Sir, my first collection of Urdu humorous essays will be published soon under the title" Har Shakh Peh ". Dr. Wazir Agha, Mushtaq Yousifi, Muhammad Khalid Akhtar, Mushfiqur Khawaja, Dr. Abul Khair Kashfi, Irshad Ahmad Khan, Ata-ul-Haq Qasmi and lots of different celebrities have given their views on the draft. My want and request is that when you additionally write a couple of traces, the respect of the guide might be doubled. It was as in the event that they have been prepared. I used to be suggested to offer them with copies of a minimum of ten chosen articles from the guide. At that point, his son Major General Ehtesham Zameer was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) of Karachi and Jafri was residing with him in Malir Cantt. I took the tackle and mailed them photocopies of ten articles.
Per week later, in distinction to the brief essays of different gents, an in depth essay was obtained from Mr. Jafari by which he described this humble man as "the fountain of salt, the mountain of salt". This was a sign that I began writing comedy with Majeed Lahori's "Namakdan". In this regard, he wrote that among the many new writers of "Namakdan", Moin Qureshi's idea had a novel psychological euphoria. His writings have been on the similar time fashionable and culturally circulating … "This valuable prose piece was included in" Every Branch … "however since then it has been included in each guide of my comics. Introduction is printed with blessings.
I don’t forget the night of February 17, 1998, when a galaxy of students and writers gathered at my home (Siddique House, Karachi). Among them are Jamiluddin Ali (with Begum Ali), Mushtaq Yousifi (with Begum Yousifi), Azhar Hassan Siddiqui (with Begum Siddiqui) Ragheb Muradabadi, Qamar Ali Abbasi (with Begum Nilufar Abbasi), Naseem Durrani, Hafiz Ba Haleem, Genius working personalities like Zia-ul-Haq Qasmi, Dr. Haroon Siddiqui Shahid have been included however the soul of the occasion was Syed Zameer Jafari. As Dr. Jameel Jalebi wrote for him, "Where there is Zameer Jafari, there are four moons for a flourishing party." For about an hour earlier than the meal and for 2 hours after the meal, the scholar stated that he ought to say one thing else. Someone hear. Aali ji and Yousifi Sahib would very cleverly depart a path at brief intervals and Jafari Sahib would open a brand new workplace of humorous occasions. Along with the dialog, the ordering course of additionally continued. On that night time, he additionally laughed and sang the minds of the intellectuals by reciting his well-known poem "Ped Akro". These few poems are nonetheless remembered یاد

Jafari Sahib was a poet, the "lexicographer" was additionally indignant. Such phrases have been introduced into the phrase that the good linguists couldn’t even attain their meanings and ideas. At my request, he began reciting his poem "Conscience"
Disappointed and helpless are orphans and helpless

Whose phrase is uncooked, similar phrase
The hand that holds the nudisters is the helper
When this lion arrived

Jafari was additionally a poet, author, translator, columnist and novelist. He was so versatile and fast to compose that, because the saying goes, "I liked the preface for breakfast, the lunch for the column, the tea for the ghazal, and the dinner for the presidential address."

The attributes of current response, wit and viewpoint have been over Jafari. He, General Zia-ul-Haq and Hafeez Jalandhari have been current at a gathering.

The supply of humor is disappointment. But the humorist additionally expresses emotion in a light-hearted approach. The reader might or might not attain the grief of the comic, however it’s the responsibility of the author to have the primary response to his work of thoughts.
