Bandipora: Nov 6 2021:(QT): Umar Jamal from QuilMuqam area of North Kashmir’s Bandipora district.21 years Umar Jamal told us Quami Times
I am a poet, a law student and a columnist. I have written dozens of articles in local newspapers My write-ups have been published in almost all major local dailies including The Rising Kashmir , Kashmir Obserber, Kashmir Age, Kashmir Reader etc. I also work freelance journalist.This youngest English poet of J&K Ummar Jammal from bandipora who has become poet at the age of 21 and has written large no of write ups,poems which have been published in leading journals , newspapers and is shining like a star now in the field of Literature. By qualification he is doing BALLB through Kashmir University. Most of the people from Law background always prefer to join courts or Police departments, and these people usually prepare for Police service, Prosecuting officer Jobs or other legal services after completing this degree. But this trend has now changed as now a days young law graduates, post graduates are now joining Intelligence depts of India like NIA(National Investigation Agency) and C.B.I as Inspectors , DSPs after qualifying the exam and only a chunk of people go for other jobs like Practice, Teaching jobs and other services.
Same is the case with Engineering, now a days NIT, IIT students prepare themselves for competitive exam and shift their profession from Engineering to Administration.
Similarly now MBBS doctors are opening big coaching centres for preparing others for NEET, JEE exam and through which they earn lakhs of rupees.
But there are hardly a few bright people among these professions who became top literary figures like Ummar Jammal. After 10 years this boy will be one of the top Poet of India . According to him he's greatly influenced by Shakespeare, Wordsworth etc. It gives immense pleasure that our Bandipora is producing such literary stars.Umaar Jamal told us Challenges are inexorable
in every work.I too have faced challenges as a poet.Initially when I used to write poems I conceal them rather then showing to others.But as time passed and my poems got published in newspapers and magazines, my family and my friends become aware that I do poetry.(QT)
