Use of Numbers in Sachal Sarmast’s Poetry


In this article attempt has been made to show that the classical poet of Sindh, Sachal Sarmast was not only a creative artist but he had a natural talent of using similies and metaphors in a befitting manner. Most of the poets of the world have used similies of beautiful flowers, natural beauty of the celestial bodies like the moon and the stars, or even abstract things like light, smell of a flower etc. Sacal Sarmast has also used these similies but he has used a very unique form of describing different aspects of the universe, the various concepts, situations and even emotions with the help of numbers or the numericals.
