Urdu Aarooz (prosody) is a difficult art; made more difficult by its archaic Arabic terminology. Only few books were written on this subject. These books, instead of helping, baffle the poets because of the intricacies of the subject. To overcome this problem, the author tried to use the scientific approach to the presentation of complicated aaroozi material. That effort culminated in ‘Milak-e-Shairi’. This book not only presents the rules of writing poetry but also provides all the basic material and essential information on twenty subjects related to writing of poetry; like qafiay, asnaf-e-suqan (gazal, Nazam, Rubyiat) etc.. If a poet wants one book to learn the rules of writing poetry, then, his choice should be, Milak-e-Shairi.
