Indeed a treasure for all those who love a culture full of love and mannerism.Urdu is not a language but a symbol of cultured life.It is so rich with thoughts,rituals,real life experiences,merger of histories,union of opposite faiths ,collaboration with regional languages that makes it immortal.The Urdu literature is beautifully crafted by preachers of peace ,love ,life and goodwill.Every word of this great literature contributes to some quarter of life.
The Author of the Book "Masterpieces of Urdu Nazm" Janab K C Kanda Saheb desrves highest awards for this great contribution. The Book will definitely kindle the New generation. I am sure the book will attract attention of All the scholars ,even of those who were not exposed to any work of Urdu earlier.Once again a hearty congratulations to Janab KC Kunda Saheb .
Syed Shahid Iqbal
