The 44th death anniversary of eminent Urdu poet and travelogue writer Ibn-e-Insha was observed on Tuesday.

He was born in Jalandhar district of Indian Punjab in 1927. He later migrated to Pakistan.

Ibn-e-Insha's poetry was simple but had depth. The real cause of his popularity was his humorous poetry and columns.

His humorous books are "Khumar-e-Gandum" and "Urdu Ki Aakhri Kitaab". His collection of letters is titled "Khat Insha Jee Kay".

Ibn-e-Insha was awarded Presidential Pride of Performance Award in 1978.

He died on this day in 1978 and was laid to rest in Karachi.
