Political empowerment of muslims in india

Ordinary poets like ordinary politicians try to gain imme- ate popularity. For this purpose they try to echo the de mand whatever it be of the populace, The demand may be right. It may be wrong. But popularity-mongers must sing the popular song. No poet with such a low ambition can give birth to high poetry.High poetry is almost always the outcome of a serious and unrelenting conflict between a poet’s personality and sur rounding circumstances. A genuine poet, like a genuine leader and teacher, is one who can change the circumstances of his society by changing the thinking and outlook of the people around. His message may even rise higher than the level of a society, even a nation, and may expand and affect any societies and nations. His message may outlive the times it was delivered in. Thus his poetry may prove to be universal and lasting. It is obvious that such boundless ac claim cannot be attained unless the thought content and form of that poetry be equally excellent. Poetic art without beautiful and high thought or vice versa makes no poetry. For a poet, who is at the same time also a philosopher, the problem of fulfilling the demands of art becomes all the more difficult. To make philosophy sing is an enormously arduous job, Iqbal has succeeded in doing so.
