Works

Nissar Ahmed has translated Chileanmarker poet Pablo Neruda’s poems under the title Bari Maryadastare (ಬರೀ ಮರ್ಯಾದಸ್ತರೆ - Only Decent People) into Kannada. Ahmed’s poems such as Kurigalu saar naavu kurigalu (ಕುರಿಗಳು ಸಾರ್ ಕುರಿಗಳು), Bharatavu namma desha (ಭಾರತವು ನಮ್ಮ ದೇಶ) (translation of Sir Mohammed Iqbal’s Saare jahaan se accha (सारे जहां से अछ्छा)) and Benne kadda namma Krishna (ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಕದ್ದ ನಮ್ಮ ಕೃಷ್ಣ) reflect the multifacetedness of the poet. His poem Nimmodaniddu, nimmantaagade (ನಿಮ್ಮೊಡನಿದ್ದು, ನಿಮ್ಮಂತಾಗದೆ) painfully narrates the dilemma which he had to go through to retain his religious roots.
