Ambar Kharbanda

Ambar Kharbanda

Ambar Kharbanda, born on December 28, 1952, defies conventional expectations as an Urdu shair. Despite holding an ITI in Electronics, he devotes himself to the art of poetry. Fluent in Hindi, English, Punjabi, Urdu, and Saraiki, Ambar is a versatile poet exploring kavya, ghazal, nazm, khamse, geet, and dohe.

A member of the ‘Uttarakhand Bhasha Sansthan,’ Ambar has authored notable works such as ‘Aisa Hoon Main’ (2009), ‘Kya Arz Karoon’ (2014), and ‘Maazirat’ (2021). ‘Maazirat’ is the sole piece of work on ‘khamse’ — an art form that is challenging to write, which is why only a few poets have explored it.Since 1963, he has graced Akashvani and TV channels, earning recognition as a senior shair on Akashvani and sharing his ghazals on the world broadcasting service.

Ambar Kharbanda’s uniqueness lies in his steadfast belief that Urdu transcends religious boundaries, a perspective shaped during his school days as the sole Hindu embracing Urdu. Despite his background in electronics engineering, Ambar prioritizes his poetic pursuits over business.

A recipient of honours like the recognition from the ‘Authors Guild of Himachal,’ ‘Maulana Abul Kalam Azad’ samman, ‘Mujahide-Urdu’ award, and ‘Pride of Uttarakhand -PBWS,’ Ambar Kharbanda’s poetry is a testament to truth, blending subtlety with a grounded and sharp perspective. In a society often conforming to norms, Ambar’s work encourages introspection, urging us to find meaning within ourselves.
