New Delhi: For hundreds of Urdu lovers, Noida Sector 15 building of the Rekhta Foundation is the main destination. An Urdu learning short-term course was recently organised which completed a month. The organisation, working for preservation of the Urdu culture, had earlier started an online programme for learning a language called Aamozish.

“These enthusiastic learners have come from various walks of life to learn the language. There are doctors, engineers, singers, businessmen, lawyers, housewives, who have joined the programme,” says Aparna Pande, manager at Rekhta.

 

The Urdu festival, which was held in February, seems to have inspired many to open to the world of incredible Urdu literature and poetry in its original script.

After almost completing a month, these students, comprising of graduation students, businessmen, lawyers, and writers read Saadat Hasan Manto’s ‘Karaamaat’ in Urdu, some fluently and some with a  few hiccups.

Misk Khurana, a student at DU’s Sri Venkateswara College, says “Urdu is very affable and charismatic and that was reason enough for her to learn it.” 

She adds, "The programme was incredibly good and helped in opening my horizons to a new language and brushed up the essence of Hindi.”
