Khaleda Farogh a bright galaxy in our poetry world

Panjshir in the Mirror of Civilization

(Part Six)

Written by Salar Azizpour

Translated by: Abdul Ali Faiq

It is crystal clear that Khaleda Farogh is one of the most shinny galaxies in our literary and poetry life, she proved to be so.

The reason of her brightness, genius, typicality is being described and mentioned by one of the great poet Mr.Zai Qasimee in his articles which is called: Nemaahee az ghazal amroz dar dakhal Afghanistan. (The appearance of sonnet in Afghanistan today)

He says: literarily, we have so many great poets among our women, but Khaleda Frough is exceptional and extraordinary poet. The reason why she is an individuation and exceptional poet: Firstly, she is an articulate and eloquent while she is presenting or delivering speech .Secondly, she is extremely, brave and venturous while she expresses her womanish or feminine feeling, thoughts and pains!

Although in our (book poem ),we have too many eloquent women poets such as : Leila Sarahat Roshani,Homeera Naghat Dastageer zada,Faiqa Jawad, Zaigol Saltani, Maryam Mahmood, Mahboba Abrahami, Seraya Wahadi, Rahila Yar, Naida Fazal, Bahar Saheed and other anonymous brilliant female poets. Here are some examples of these new generation pomes vision. “Most of the women interviewed emphasized the femininity and uniqueness – even superiority – of their vision rather than their equal capability vis-à-vis men. “The quality of the women’s work was much higher than that of the men. Because of their refined visions of life, the natural world, and their surroundings and their feminine sense and perception, women interact with their surroundings more comfortably and easily, and these encounters are expressed in their poetry,” says Ebrahimi. “Women’s sensitivity towards events and to the external environment is much higher than that of men. Of course, one can’t say that male poets don’t have such a spirit, but women have a greater aptitude because of their natural temperament,” adds Rahimeh Mirzaee, 24, from Mashhad, who was awarded an honorable mention in the poetry category. “The poetic spirit is much closer to women than to men. They are much more witty and elegant,” agrees Basi Gol Sharifi, 25, a member of the organizing team of the festival”.

Khaleda Farogh is described by many poets as a super female poet in her era, but some of other poet criticized her that she is following the path of mannish style. Mr Kazam Kazimi and Mahboba Abrahami one of the great poet critique, saying about her: Khaleda Farogh is still imprisonment of mannish impression; she did not come out from the circle of mannish influence. Sepecially, she is influenced by Wasif Bakhtari.

However, the writer of this book (Salar Azizpour) is rejecting the “theory” that Farogh is being imprisoned (stylishly) in the manner of her teachers. But, it is natural that she is influenced by some of her Ustad (professors that she learnt from them .Otherwise, she entirely, has a freedom and independent way of thinking and expression. That is why, makes her more shiner and brighter.

I have to mention about Khaleda Farogh profile, ethnical birth place and education background .Khaleda Farogh is from Panjshir. She was born in Kabul in 1349 in a Panjshiri educated family .After her completion of her primary and secondary school in Kabul. She graduated from Kabul University, from faculty of language and literature in1371.She attained her University diploma.

After her graduation, she became the manager {Literary Radio of Afghanistan Branch}, as well as, she became one of the members of Writers Society, subsequently she became Sadaf Mojala’s (Pearl Magazine) director.

She has published a volume of her work during her work. The contributions are as: Sarnavesht dast ha fanoos (the fate of the lamp).Dar khayban ha khob wa khaterra ha (In the road of good dream and memories).Qayame matra (the uprising of Metra) and others. And we are waiting for her more inventions, creations and contributions for Afghanistan and humanity at large.
