The Moon has been a recurring metaphor in Urdu.
Mehfil in December will revolve around the imagery of the moon as manifest in poetry in Urdu.
A favourite with most poets, the Moon has been used in several interesting ways to convey the concerns of everyday life, besides the obvious beauty of a female face. The evening will look at this fascination with the moon with interesting anecdotes and samples from Urdu Poetry.
The event is conducted in English and easy to understand Urdu. [ definitely not high brow :) ]
It is meant especially for newbies who love the language and would like to experience its beauty.
