Faiz Ahmed Faiz the iconic romantic-revolutionary Urdu poet (1911-1984) was arguably the most popular poet produced by the Indian subcontinent in the twentieth century. 2011 marks the hundredth anniversary of his birth.
We present our own tribute to Faiz – his life, works and beliefs- as a conversation between Danish and Mahmood. The conversation will largely draw on his own writings and poems.
Rakht-e Dil Baandh lo Dil-figaron chalo
Phir Hamin Qatl Ho aayen Yaaron Chalo
The performance is open to all. Please feel free to invite everyone who wishes to celebrate Faiz. Thanks.
And, if you can’t make it to this performance then you may also catch us at the Karachi University Auditorium, Karachi University, University Road, Karachi on Tuesday, Sep 06, 2011 at 11.30 in the morning.
