Drama | Urdu


Our hugely popular Urdu dramatic readings programme is back in a new avatar! 

This edition will feature brilliant writing in different forms – letters, poetry, satire, articles, newspaper columns, and so on. 

The first two sessions were a selection of letters written by Mirza Ghalib, followed by letters of Saadat Hasan Manto, Rajinder Singh Bedi, and Safiya Akhtar. 
For the third and fourth sessions, we had a set of satirical and humorous tales by Pitras Bokhari, Ibn-e-Insha, Krishan Chander, Chaudhari Muhammad Ali Rudaulvi and Yunus Bhat, among others.
In the fifth session, we considered ‘Khaaka-Nigari’ — the age-old tradition of pen sketches in Urdu literature. We read pieces by writers, poets and social commentators such as Farhatulla Baig, Josh Malihabadi, Shahid Ahmed Dahelvi & Ismat Chughtai.

Session #6: 
Continuing our exploration of ‘Khaaka-Nigari’, we look at pen sketches by other Urdu writers - Ahmed Bashir, Ashraf Sabuhi Dahelvi, Rashid Ahmed Siddiqui and Saadat Hasan Manto.

Readers: Asad Hussain, Aseem Hattangady & Nisha Dhar

Programme conceived in association with well-known Urdu scholar, Aslam Parvez.
