|Born||Abdul Karim Soomro|
Soomro has written 12 books as of 2016[update]: one book of prose, three poetry collections, and eight works of children's literature and poetry. When asked about writing in other languages, he explained that because people dream in their native tongue, they express themselves most effectively through it, and that preferring to work in a different language would leave his own vulnerable. Commenting on the longevity of poetic works, and on the challenges young poets face, he said they must combine artistic merit with thought while avoiding becoming repetitive.
