Ismail Mohammad Merathi son of Sheikh Peer Bakhsh, was born at Meerut in 1844. He learnt Persian and Arabic at home and passed Diploma from Roorkee Engineering College. At the age of 16, he started his career as a clerk. Later he joined a Government school at Agra as a teacher and retired from his service in 1899. Ismail is one of the leading poets of new age and won a distinction as a children's poet. He disliked the unreal images and expressions of the old poetry, avoided conventional style and always played with the new ideas. He composed poems with directness and simplicity. Raza-e-Jawahar (1880) is a collection of his poems. His other publications are Kulliyat-e-Ismail (1910) and Hayat-o-Kulliyat-e-Ismail (1939). His poems, though meant for students of lower classes, do not fail to fascinate even the advanced students of Urdu literature.
