There is an old Kashmiri adage, 'Ath kathe chhu Wahab Khar te lajawabe'- which is a fitting tribute to the wisdom of this 19th century poet. Wahab Khar, born in Pulwama, was a blacksmith by proffesion. Though being illiterate Wahab Khar rose to become one of the fabled mystic poets of Kashmir. His 'Mehraj Namma' and 'Mach Tuler' are regarded as works of occult mysticism with references.
Wahab Khar used to meander in the wastarwan jungles of Khrew, raising esoteric villanelle poems.
Beha chas dramich Yaras pattey
