Reading other people’s poetry is good for polishing out ur own Writing skill , but I feel making someone Writing/poetry an Idealogy for ur own writing skill is bad as a Poet . When U specifically following/reading someone poetry na , U start trying same effect , same syllaba rhyimng , same accordance , same refrence , kaffi restricted creation hojati hai . U will never feel it but , graduallyy on and on in reading process of poetry that same sense of poet will get adopt in you .
Like for an year , I read Sukoon by wajid sahab , Now his voice is deep He has his own reciting voice , or unka mostly poetry ka verse starts like “Ki woh khete hai ek din “. He always try to add a covey shyari of peoples , Now slowly in reading progress I too started making same type of thing , but I was not made for that genra but . In progress of reading it for a long time made my creation to revolve around this only !
Once Kazmi sahab has said , Ki zaariyat diwaar par bani murat kya h , log thay purane bhot , kittabo ka sang lekhak ki aziyat lena ek saja h , utaro kashti kagazo ki nabz mai dafaa-ae-guft , magar ada churana , yeh bewafa hai !
