NAPA TALKS brings you an evening of powerful literary recitation from the work of the famous ‘Shaa’ir-i-Inqilaab’ Josh Malihabadi, one of the major Urdu poets of the twentieth century who injected modern revolutionary zeal into classical Urdu heroic poetry, and discussed the significance of Karbala as a guiding light for the universal human spirit.
