Presiding over the event, Dr. Hasan Raza spoke eloquently on literature and culture, emphasizing the role of an artist and poet who breathes life into words. He beautifully elucidated the various meanings in which different poets have used the word ‘Nadaan’ and highlighted its significance through poetic verses. Dr. Raza further emphasized that culture is the name of embellishing and nurturing all relationships and connections between Allah and His creatures.

The poetry session commenced with the well-known poet Naeem Akhtar Burhanpuri, reciting a Naat with melodious intonation. Esteemed poets from across the country participated. After a long time, this city witnessed such a magnificent literary event, and the enthusiasm of the audience was commendable.
