About the Event

Vo kare baat to har lafz se khushbu aae

Aesi boli wahi bole jise urdu aae


-Ahmad Wasi

 

Urdu is one of the most beautiful, polite and loved language. It is popularly known as the language of love. And when we talk about Urdu Adab i.e. Urdu Literature, the first word which comes into our mind is - Ghazal


Ghazal is one of the most celebrated, heart-warming and elegant form of poetry. It not only depicts the beauty of human romance but also translates the most revolutionary thoughts and emotions into words. It appeals to everyone, but it is mostly adored and appreciated by the youth. Today when almost every budding poet is influenced and inspired by the charm of Urdu Ghazal, It becomes important that they also learn and understand the technicalities behind it.
