The study innovatively elaborates how, when and which poets have imbedded a sense of aesthetics in Brahui Ghazal with details pertaining to the theme illustrated by arguments and examples by referring to a variety of books dealing with the subject matter. Apart from this, there is a lively discussion on the historical background and periods of Brahui Ghazal. Thus, a descriptive qualitative research approach was adopted. The research paper argues that Brahui poets seem incapable of writing openly on technically sensitive topics such as aesthetics because it is very difficult to understand where aesthetics seems appropriate in poetry. Although consciously unaware of aesthetics, a few examples are found in Brahui Ghazals as reported in this article.</em></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Zara Hashmi Copyright (c) 2022 Al-Burz https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2012-06-30 2012-06-30 14 1 1 13 10.54781/abz.v14i1.316 Translation Studies in Brahui literature http://alburz.uob.edu.pk/journal/index.php/alburz/article/view/285 <table> <tbody> <tr> <td width="426"> <p><em>Translators should have a broad understanding of the languages being used in translation​​ i.e. the language of the original text and the target language wherein the translation will be made.

This article presents Maulvi Allah Bakhsh Zehri's the Handbook of Brahui Language in the 19th century with a Brahui translation of several Persian anecdotes followed by a translation from English into Brahui, titled "Brahui Reader". However, the art of translation in Brahui literature was first introduced by religious scholars and esteemed people with Arabic and Persian translations. For example. scholars of the Durkhani school of thought have been the source of many religious books, essays, commentaries, and valuable translations of the Holy Qur'an and Hadith in Brahui literature. This study discusses how the people benefited from the translations and commentaries of the Quran Majeed Furqan Hameed. </em></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Abdul lateef Bangulzai Copyright (c) 2022 Al-Burz https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2022-07-01 2022-07-01 14 1 14 25 10.54781/abz.v14i1.285 براہوئی افسانہ ٹی ترقی پسند ی نا رجحان http://alburz.uob.edu.pk/journal/index.php/alburz/article/view/277 <p><em>Fiction has a great significance in literature. It dates back to the 19th century. The Russian revolution put a profound effect on it. Thus, fiction got a great value in literature. This research article describes the tendency and impacts of “Taraqi Pasandi" in Brahui fiction (Taraqi Pasand Movement as a reflection of the revolution). The Traqi Pasand Movement not only influenced Urdu literature, especially fiction, but it also brought a dramatic change in South Asian literature, including regional literature. Brahui fiction also depicted the concept wherein the economic inequality and feudal system affected the regions including the land of Balochistan which was also a victim of similar problems. As a resistance, Brahui fiction represented the concept of "socialism" and "Marxism" and condemned feudalism, which is a big hurdle in the way of the progress of the society, mainly focusing on the message of peaceful coexistence of the communities within a diverse society.</em></p> Naseebullah Sagar Copyright (c) 2022 Al-Burz https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2022-06-30 2022-06-30 14 1 26 32 10.54781/abz.v14i1.277 براہوئی خلقی قصہ غاتیٹی کردار نگاری نا جاچ http://alburz.uob.edu.pk/journal/index.php/alburz/article/view/312 <p><em>Brahui folktales are very ancient literary genres of Brahui.

In any literature, poetry enjoys a core position, and poetry is always created by the intellectuals who keep a close eye on the problems faced by the masses in the deteriorating climate conditions and the depiction thereof, especially when the suffering masses do not have access to proper management or facilities in a timely manner. The problems leave psychological as well as social effects on the people. This study mainly focuses on the problems that Brahui language users face. These people mostly live in the mountainous areas of Balochistan where they face both intensively hot and cold weather. With a qualitative exploratory approach, this study discusses how Brahui poetry has dealt with those issues of winter and summer faced by the people with a reflection of the lifestyle of the people. The findings depict the difficulties of the rural people narrated in Brahui poetry during the course of seasonal migrations from “Khurasan” to “Sindh” for their and their live stock’s survival and, resultantly, how they passed their lives in poverty during such seasonal migrations.</em></p> Rasheeda Baloch Copyright (c) 2022 Al-Burz https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2022-06-30 2022-06-30 14 1 39 46 10.54781/abz.v14i1.286
