At Mehfil we will continue our discussion on The Progressive Writers’ Movement.

The progressives contributed to Urdu literature some of the finest pieces of fiction and poetry. Undoubtedly, they were the trendsetters for the coming generation of writers, and their role cannot be denigrated or denied. Their works have stood the test of time as we continue to read and listen to their verses and words even today.

Part I dealt with the nascent stages of this movement. Part II will recap the previous session in brief and discussions will be on contemporary stories.

Come join us as we explore this movement through the prolific works poets, writers and films.
