Some years ago when cable television was new in Kashmir, PTV World was a very popular channel to watch. During Ramazan, in the pre-Q TV days one would watch PTV’s Sehri broadcast featuring a lot of  “Naat shariefs” (odes to the Prophet) interspersed by advertisements of Lazeeza Sheer Khorma Mix and Bonanza sweaters. Then a big moustached Zamindaar would appear, who in a fierce guttural tone recommend the poor farmers to use Mughal (or was it something else?) steel and girders (gaarder, as they pronounced). Live call-in programs were still a few years away. But the best part of Sehri was this – a five lingual recitation of Qaseedah Burdah, originally written by Imam Busairi. Qaseeda Burdah is a beautiful and a very long poem written in the love of Prophet. From the old PTV days, the following video in honour of the Prophet (SallalahuAlaihiWasallam).
