Dr. Saima Shaikh Shaikh, Ali Murad Lajwani, Ms. Fehmida Memon

Abstract


The same as in the social science, the poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai interprets the structures, mechanisms of social order and cooperating behaviors of a set of individuals within a given human collectivity.  The  basic  unit  of this collectivity for individuals is family and then religion, education, peer groups, community centers, human organizations, departments and wider social connections. These social institutions are functioning for the constancy and better social growth of society. Formation of these institutions is not artificial but  depending on  the  sense  of  cooperation   and  better  relation  building of  individuals.  Agreeably  the very  core-subject  of  Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai’s  poetry  is  on  human interactions, collective groups, social and cultural congregations. All around the sphere, this poetry reflects like fascinating colors for individuals to live together to build strong human-chain in society and keep cooperating while achieving the social welfare. There are multifarious signs and symbols portrayed where individuals and groups are regenerated in a better way to form pure unions and build long-lasting castles of patience and tolerance through institutionalization. This research paper presents some glorious glimpse on sociological analysis of social institutions as portrayed in the poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai.
