The event entailed various prose and poetry sessions, amongst which Naushabah Khatoon’s book “Khizan K Baad” was also launched.

“The Urdu language is spreading all over the world and its popularity is gaining ground in the State of Qatar.

“It is interesting to note that many expatriates including Indians, Pakistanis, Nepalese are being drawn to this language and have started to understand the poetry, literature and culture of Urdu,” Naushabah stated while talking about the need of ‘fiction in Urdu writing’.

“Fiction is the spirit of novel and it appeals the reader to read the whole novel unless it is not finished. It created an interesting scenario in his/her mind,” she added.
