Sham-e-Shayri, an introductory platform for interpretation of Urdu Poetry will be conducted at Vidhya Bhawan Shiksha Sandarbh Kendra, Udaipur from 11 February 2019.
The program, which will be conducted by Dr. Hamida Banu, will begin at 6:00pm from 11 February. Participation in the event is free.
Dr. Hamida Banu, who holds a Adeeb Kamil in Urdu from the Jamia Aligarh University and has taught Urdu script and poetry for over 3 decades in the United States and India, will introduce the participants to the depths of Urdu poetry during these classes. The classes will be held three times a week beginning 11 February – Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The classes will be held over three weeks.
This session is open to all interested in learning more about the depth of Urdu poetry and language as well.
Language has no barriers and as far as Urdu is concerned it is globally recognised as one of the richest languages in terms of its influence on countries, communities, prose, poetry and daily use.
The depth of the Urdu language can be gauged from the vast treasure of poetry in the form of Ghazals, Nazms, Marsiya, Qasida, Naat, Qawwali and many other off shoots of Urdu poetry.
The course, which was introduced on 8 February and commences on 11 February (subject to minimum threshold participation), is designed for people who enjoy listening to Urdu poetry, but are often at a loss, when it comes to understanding the different forms, the vocabulary and knowing more about the poet and the genre. We will study the works of masters such as Meer, Ghalib, Ustad Zauq, Jigar, Faiz. Sahir and others.
Participants will be able to increase their vocabulary and deepen their understanding of selected works.
