The ancient art of story-telling comes alive in a performance. The Dastan-Go was a narrator and recounted tales of war, magic, life in the court, trickery, and adventure. Tales from many diverse sources and various traditions were woven together in the Dastaan.

The richest tales are a part of the cycle Dastaan-e-Amir Hamza and the story within a story of the Tilism-e-Hosh Ruba, literally magic which will blow your mind away. In a geographical terrain which is richly imagined, where sorcerers and warlords live and beautiful princesses abound. Dastaan-e-Amir Hamza is the longest narrative of its kind and was immensely popular in its day.

Fawad Khan, Nazr ul Hasan and Meesam Naqvi are part of the new revival of the Dastaan-Goi.

About The Arzu Center
The Arzu Center for Regional Languages and Humanities contributes to Habib University’s overall vision and institutional mission through fostering pedagogy, research and scholarship in the various languages from Pakistan. Adversely affected by the lack of clearly defined educational and national priorities, this Center is designed to contribute to the revitalization of these languages and cultures.

It is linked to Habib University’s School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and will serve to meet the vernacular requirements of the University. The Center’s scope of work covers a wide range including language instruction, translation from and into the regional languages, development of pedagogical material, cultural and literary preservation and the promotion of language-based activities.

The Center is named after the 18th century poet, linguist and lexicographer, Siraj-ud-Din Ali Khan Arzu.
