Nature of Jaun Elia

Well, it is well known that the persona of Jaun Elia was unfriendly. He considered himself agnostic. He never tried to have a good behaviour with people around him. Known as a stressed person with the load of sadness on his shoulder.
PakistanToday describes Jaun Elia as:

His was a façade of darkness and morbidity. His face was lined with stress and ill temper, and his behaviour was crude, harsh, and rough, often angering many who were close to him, while tolerated by several others because they loved him.

He was a very good writer, there is no doubt in that, but personally, he was mean and even abusive. A lot of friends has left him, but he has lots of fans.
It reminds me of the quote of John Green, from the book “The Fault in Our Stars”.

You’re a shitty person but a good writer.

After the divorce, things get terrible. Elia started drinking more and engulfed the loneliness and depression.
His life was paved with sadness, and he lived through it with the help of his Shayari.
This is the reason, the Jaun Elia poetry is sad and miserable.
Hence, the millennial, with their broken hearts and hope, relate to him so much.

Jaun Elia 2 Line Hindi Shayari

अब जो रिश्तों में बंधा हूँ तो खुला है मुझ पर
क्यूँ परिंदे उड़ नहीं पाते परों के होते

क्या सितम है कि अब तेरी सूरत
गौर करने पे याद आती है

सोचता हूँ कि उसकी याद आखिर
अब किसे रात भर जगाती है

जानिए उससे निभेगी किस तरह
वो खुदा है मैं तो बन्दा भी नहीं

हैं दलीलें तेरे खिलाफ मगर
सोचता हूँ तेरी हिमायत में

मज़हबी बहस मैंने की ही नहीं
फालतू अकल मुझ में थी ही नहीं

यूँ जो तकता है आसमान को तू
कोई रहता है आसमान में क्या
