Raabta Online is proud to present a tribute to two celebrated authors in the history of Indian literature, whose names when taken together, evoke passion, unconditional and unrequited love. The unsaid and unspoken bond between renowned Punjabi author Amrita Preetam and notable Urdu poet and lyricist, Sahir Ludhiyanvi, was above any social norm or tradition. Both had an unconditional association that never required any justification. In her autobiography, 'Raseedi Ticket', Amrita wrote about her feelings towards Sahir. The other book 'Main Sahir Hoon' written by Mr. Chander Verma and Dr. Salman Abid also mentioned the unfulfilled and illusive love between Sahir and Amrita. Few excerpts have been taken from it too. The musical and theatrical presentation weaves the pain and wishful & unfinished love between the two poets through dramatized narration of their life snippets, poetry recitation and song renditions. The narrative is a creative interpretation by Raabta Online. It may not hold exact resemblance to real incidents. The presentation is a treat for poetry and literature lovers.
