From Fayaz Dehlvi (known as the Father of Urdu Poetry) to Meer Taqi ‘Meer’ (known as Khuda-e-Sukhan) to Mirza Asadullah Khan ‘Ghalib’ to Altaf Hussain ‘Hali’ to Faiz Ahmad Faiz, Ahmad Faraz, Parveen Shakir, Waseem Barelvi, Bashir Badr to present-day poets, Urdu poetry has seen dramatic changes in its structure and language. We believe to write a good poem of any language, one should understand its formation and its evolution through ages and periods. In the second event of Kalaeco’s Kalarath series, we bring to you a rich discussion about the evolution of Urdu poetry and literature with Urdu Poet and Critic, Aamir Khan.
