The event is dedicated to Faiz Ahmad Faiz who was a renowned Urdu Poet. Faiz Ahmad’s birthday falls prior in the same week on 13th February. Faiz’s early poems had been conventional, light-hearted treatises on love and beauty. We have taken inspiration from one of his great works titled “Kuch Ishq kiya, Kuch Kaam kiya” for our event.

Discussion by well known Hindi Fiction writer Prof. Abdul Bismillah who edited the first definitive and comprehensive collection of Faiz’s works titled “Saare Sukhan Hamare” (All My Writings) in 1987.

Ghazal Program by two young Ghazal Singers

Mushaira: We’d be inviting selected young poets to read their own poetry on love or revolution.

This is a free event. There is NO entry fee for the event or the Mushaira.
