Holi is a festival that has been written a lot about in Urdu poetry from the spectrum of India's Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb.

Although there are many poets who have expressed their love for the festival, Wali Muhammad, who used to write using nom de plume, 'Nazeer', wrote almost a dozen nazms on Holi.

In this episode we not only look at some of Nazeer Akbarabaadi's works but also read Azhar Iqbal, Bhartendu Harishchandra, among others.
