Verbal and Terminological Definition of Comment (Tabsarah تبصرہ کی لفظی اور اصطلاحی تعریف:):
When the term meaning of a comment (tabsarah تبصره) is meant, then the special and well-known comment is meant, and that is commenting, criticizing and criticizing books, magazines, journals, and publications …. but when the literal meaning is meant then General tabsarah means to comment (tabsarah تبصره) on everything and work… The literal meaning of comment is: “to criticize, to explain, etc.” In this sense, you can comment (tabsarah) on anything.

Are, and these commentators make technical comments (tabsarah تبصره) keeping in mind the principles of “commentary”. Not every book is considered worthy of comment (tabsarah).
Basic Rules for Commenting (Tabsarah karny k Bunyadi Asool تبصرہ کرنے کے بنیادی اصول):
Here are some of the ones I found to be helpful: In order to comment (tabsarah تبصره) on any book, it is necessary to be fully acquainted with that book. The author of the book should be examined to see who they are. What is its practical and technical background? That is, first of all, introduction and awareness is obtained from the author and the author.
Secondly, the subject of the book should be considered. On what subject and art are these books written? The whole pot can be estimated by “tasting a few grains of the pot”, but it is difficult to estimate the whole book by reading a few pages of the book, so the principle of tasting a few grains of the pot should not be applied here.
The way to get acquainted with the book and the subject is to take a quick look at the book list after reading the book’s introduction, case, etc. Then take a pen, pencil or lighter in hand. View the book from selected locations. Keep looking from start to finish. When you have a cursory look from beginning to end, then look at the selected places on the reverse page, ie from the last page to the first page.
In the meantime, keep marking and drawing special and important places. If something seems important, note it as a note on a blank white page with a cover at the beginning or end of the book, to make it easier to return. After looking at the whole book once or twice in this way, one gets some knowledge of the subject matter, art, and all the contents of the book. Then place the book.
Keep thinking about it for a few days, keep thinking, keep sketching in your mind what is special about this book? And what is the distinction of this book which I will mention exclusively? When this article comes to mind, when it is ready, then sketch on paper, write a rough, take a look at the important places that you have already marked and distinguished by drawing… (tabsarah)
When the sketch is done on paper, the important things should be noted, the features should be written number wise. If the most important point is highlighted, then make an introduction in the name of Allah. In the introduction, the background of the introduction, authorship, and composition is given, which sheds light on the art and theme of the book. In the same way, in the introduction and in the beginning, it is also stated whether it is a permanently authored book or a collected material and compilation. Is it a translation or a text rate? Is it a collection of columns or research written on a particularly important scientific topic? The whole background of the book is explained in this preface.
The traditional way of commenting (Tabsarah): (تبصرہ نگاری کا روایتی طریقہ)
After the introduction, the second part discusses the place and status of the book. The scientific, literary, political, and artistic details of this book are reviewed. The commentator puts himself in the place of a just judge and a fair-minded judge and analyzes impartially and impartially. It exposes the strengths and weaknesses of the book to the readers and the public. If this principle is not followed, the personality and credibility of the commentator (tabsarah) are damaged, and the public begins to perceive it as biased.
Conditions such as a book, cover, paper, paper, printing, printing, color, and quality are usually mentioned in the last part of the essay. The publisher and the author are also advised to correct these things, and to pay special attention to such and such things in the corrections and additions in the next edition, and to avoid these things. The general price of the book, discounted price, the full name of the publisher, phone number and address of receiving the book, etc. are also written at the beginning or end.
Innovative comment (Tabsarah) style:
This was the original and somewhat ancient method of tabsarah on books. Nowadays, the modern method is that the author of the book writes a comment (Tabsarah) and puts it at the beginning of the book. The commentator or essayist copies and pastes. The effort of turning the pages of a book and reading it is not even noticed. no! This should not be done. This is an injustice to the author, the book, and the readers.
Writers are also commenting (tabsarah) on column and article style. It usually describes the merits of both the author and the book. The principles, rules, and objectives of the commentary are not taken into account, but the columnist, essayist, writer who likes the book, write a column on it. Which is mentioned by the columnist in his article? That definition was based on lies, and then…!!
The difference between comment (Tabsarah) & perspective:
Another thing to keep in mind is that there is a difference between a comment (Tabsarah) and a tabsarah. However, in the preface, the preface, and the foreword, the same principles should be followed as for the commentary, because the purpose of writing the preface, the preface, and the foreword is also to express one’s opinion about this book. This is just a theoretical thing, it is not happening in practice.
In practice, it is happening that the person who writes the commentary praises the author and the book, but loses its merits. Some gentlemen do not even consider it a disgrace to mix the folds of heaven and earth in the definition of the book and the author unnecessarily, forgetting the principle of honesty and keep mentioning false virtues. It should not be done. Do what is right and true, because whether it is a comment (Tabsarah) or a commentary, a lawsuit or a foreword is tantamount to testifying in the readers’ court. Moderation should also be exercised in the matter of Taqreez.
Books are what you comment (tabsarah) on, criticize, criticize, analyze… Support the truth in all of them, and do not leave the path of justice. Don’t go for less than your full potential. Be moderate. Where criticism is needed, criticize openly, do not be stingy in what deserves praise.
Newcomers to journalism should focus on learning the art of commentary, among other things. In the beginning, as an exercise, you should comment on everything and everything. Well-known writer, poet, and intellectual Mr. Ata-ul-Haq Qasmi say that in my college life I used to comment (Tabsarah) on everything, even on the noses, shoes, and walking style of girls. Of course, in the beginning, it will be difficult and difficult, but when you work with study, information, present answer, deep vision, sharpness, eloquence, and intelligence, then gradually you will also learn the art of commentary and criticism. Will start coming
remember! Commenting and the art of commentary will help you in many other ways of writing. For example, if you want to be a political columnist, it also tabsarah and analyzes politics. See! Commentary is on everything and work, both on personalities and on circumstances. It happens to the President and also to the rickshaw driver. It happens on books as well as on socks …. there is a common denominator. You will get the right comment and analysis only when you get in the habit of commenting on everything and everything.
This practice of a few days, months, and years will make you a good writer, a good writer, a trustworthy analyst, an expert intellectual, a good essayist, a beautiful analyst, and an impartial journalist. So start commenting today. Keep commenting, no one will stop you. While making wrong comments (tabsarah), they will start making the right comments (tabsarah), or talks…
