Interesting Information on masnavii

The chief object of the genre “Marsiya (Elegy)” of Urdu poetry is to express mourning. Marsiya deals with an important event in Islamic history, the episode of Karbala in Iraq and the martyrdom of Imam Hussein. Mir Anis brought Urdu Marsiya to its pinnacle. His Marsiyas are as deeply rooted in Arab history as they are etched in his way of presenting the Indian society, especially the customs, traditions and parlance of Lucknow. In Anis’s Marsiyas, male characters are seen wearing Arabic head-gear, robes and garments. There is also the mention of Arabic weapons and animals in the battlefield, but Indian weapons too make the scene. Amidst scorching desert of Iraq, an Indianness reflects in his rendition of seasons, days, and nights. Mir Anis has portrayed the hopes, aspirations, wishes, demeanors, tone, dialect, idioms and emotional attitudes of Indian women in such a way that there is no match to it in the whole of Urdu poetry. In one of his famous Marsiyas, Imam Hussain's sister blesses her sister-in-law at Karbala in a purely Indian way: Baano-e-Nek-Naam ki khetii harii rahe Sandal se maang bachho.n se godii bharii rahe
