Aagaaz marks the genesis of Rubaru, it introduces you to the world of Urdu Literature. This session has Shahid Khan reciting some rustic and unadulterated pieces by icons like – Ghalib, Faiz, Manto, Sahir, Muztar Khairabadi, Kaifi Azmi and many more.
Ru-ba-ru is a 90 mins ‘mehfil’ experience that familiarizes the audience with paramount Urdu poets and gems of Hindustani Literature through a series of recitations. These include handpicked ghazals, nazms, stories, and letters that are collected, garnered, and exhibited to uncover the lost charm of Hindustani Adab. Ru-ba-ru strives to stir your soul on an evening filled with timeless poems, letters, ghazals and stories written by monumental writers that will leave you hypnotized for long. In an era where new creations are plenty and pretty frequent, let’s take a step back to appreciate and understand the sheer aesthetics and meaning of Hindustani Adab.
Shahid Khan is among the few poets in the city who have brought the lure of Urdu poetry to the stage. He believes in the power of expression that lies in the elegance and enchantment of Urdu Poetry. He actively participates in various poetry events across the city and has been featured by poetry groups like Bullock Cart Poetry and Majlis. He is a keen observer and loves to learn from the myriad of beautiful little things that life provides.
