Murtaza Birlas started composing poetry at the age of 12 when he was an 8th Grader. His first verse was:

  Ishq kar ke jo aah kartay hain (Those who sigh after falling in love)
   Sub say burdh kar gunah kartay hain (Are the worst of sinners)

He was greatly  inspired by his elder brother,
Mustafa Rahi, (who was a reputed poet of
the
Jigar school), Momin, and then Yagana Changezi.
