Understanding Urdu Shaaeri: An Introduction at T2F

In order to appreciate The Second Floor poetical works one must know its rules, its range of poets, its variety, its range of changes over time, place, and the events around it. There are also subsections within the two major portions, Ghazals and Nazms, that one needs to know in order to really appreciate the styles and forms.

This course will feature discussions on many poets, including occasional audio recordings of their readings, as well as series of anecdotes accumulated by the facilitator through his and his family’s close ties with the poets. All this will allow you to really understand the poets and gain an insight into their personalities, the times they lived in and the subjects that they dealt with. This course has successfully been held thrice before at T2F.

Hailing from a family of poets and writers, Zaheer Kidvai is a writer, mentor, educationist, activist and pioneer of multimedia and interactive learning in Pakistan, as well as master mariner and one of the founders of T2F
