Event Details & Reservation

Calling all lovers of Urdu in Lahore! Joy of Urdu Reading Group Lahore is proud to organise another session dedicated to appreciating the beauty of Urdu.

After the huge success of our January session, Arfa Sayeda Zehra will be joining us again for our February session. If you missed the last session, or saw it on video, this is your chance to hear her read out and explain another literary gem in person!

This time she will be reading from Dozakhi by Ismat Chughtai, a “pen-picture” dedicated to her brother.

There is no need to have read the text beforehand however you are encouraged to bring a soft or hard copy of the text so you can easily follow along Arfa Apa’s reading and improve your own reading fluency.

Joy of Urdu is a bilingual organization that aims to facilitate and enable the ongoing revitalization of the Urdu language, in order to reclaim our literary heritage.

The Joy of Urdu Reading Group (JOU-RG) initiative is aimed at creating a space for beginners, and even advanced readers to start (or get back to) reading Urdu. We have Joy of Urdu Reading Groups in different cities in Pakistan and around the world, led by a team of dedicated volunteers who coordinate the meetings with reading guides/ leaders who lead the discussion, and where necessary, read along for the group.

Lovers of Urdu of all levels of proficiency are welcome, so don’t shy away from experiencing a wonderful afternoon marked by Arfa Apa’s brilliant reading and critical explanation of Dozakhi. The aim of all JOU events is to encourage you to embrace Urdu without feeling inadequate when it comes to your knowledge of Urdu literature or the language.
