However, these do not entirely miss the real world and its mind boggling realities. The jail, the home and the slum merge and the eunuch, the dwarf and the freakish girl are appropriate symbols of the chaos prevailing around us. By far the most distinctive feature of these poems is the attempted linguistic dislocation.

In the first place, Eruj may be influenced by modernistic trend of dislocating language in order to force the complexity of modern life into it. Conventionally meanings are distorted in order to fit them in the poetic form. Now language is dislocated. Still more to the point, however, is the nostalgic love of archaic.

Murtaza Birlas' fifth collection of Urdu poetry Girah-e-Neembaz has been published by the Al-asar Publications of Lahore without any interdiction by the poet.
However, it carries brief remarks about the poet and his poetry written by Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Mohammad Ali Siddiqui on the dust jacket. The book contains ghazals written in the refined traditional style with new ideas and contemporary sensibility. The poet's belief in commutability makes his ghazals a delight to read.
