Shaukat Kaifi speaking about Kaifi Azmi

As young people Shaukat and Kaifi fall desperately in love with each other but are soon parted. For Shaukat’s family, a card-holding communist, a poet with no source of income, is hardly the kind of person their daughter should be marrying. Yet Shaukat’s father, a liberal man and a loving father, takes the bold step of putting his daughter’s happiness before social opprobrium, and brings the two lovers together.
