His poetry gives the message of the original and pure culture of Punjab. Anwar Masood is the only Punjabi poet who is popular among the masses. The way he has described the different aspects of life in his poetry have never been described before. Some of his poems have become so popular that where ever he went people desire to listen them again and again and have requested him to recite them before them. The most popular of them are Anar Kali Diyan Shana, Aj Kee Pakaeay, Banyan, Juma Bazaar, Umree and many more. A few days back when he was in Riyadh Tahir Butt and I along with my son had an opportunity to meet him in person and interview him.

Mela Akheyan Da
Guncha Pher Laga Khalnay
Hun Ke Keray
Shakh -e- Tabasam
Ek Derecha Ek Charag
Meli Meli Dhoup

Anwar Masood said that people love me so much that where ever I went they welcome me with love and passion. I feel very happy when I see them laughing. Our society has a set back of unevenness and people are participating in their sorrow and happiness to some extent. The unexpectation and negative values are the main reasons for unawareness of our society. Our education system is not equal and our mother language has been put aside. We have to explore the basic quality of ever Pakistani and get together for the rapid and fast development of our nation. Because people of Pakistan are very talented and they have basic emotions of goodness.
