At the dawn of the twenty-first century it may be difficult to see the value of letter writing as a means of communication. However letter writing in Urdu has formed a strong body of interesting prose in a language that is otherwise known for its poetic finesse.

At mehfil we will discover and delve into the lives of people through their letters, which have become an important form of documentation of a time and period in the history of our Country.

We will read letters of various poets, freedom fighters, authors and writers ranging from Mirza Ghalib to Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru to get a flavor of the language and how it has evolved over the years.
