Muqtida Hasan Nida Fazli, born in 1938 in Delhi, is an eminent Urdu poet and lyricist. His poetry is often described as lacking in any singular identity thereby defying neat categorizations.

His poetry reflects the checkered trajectories of a poet who "traveled in many directions". His poetry uses both village and urban landscapes to explore nature and human relations.

Influenced by the events surrounding Partition, his poetic spirit is still out in search of his home and his nation returning to the theme of expecting the impossible unity of the soldiers on opposite sides of the Indo-Pak border. He is an Indian poet who responds to the tragic present of South Asia with a rare sensitivity.

Nida Fazli has received various awards including Khusro Award, Best Poetry Award from Maharashtra Urdu Academy, Hindi Urdu Sangam Award and Sahitya Akademi Award in 1998.
