Sanjiv Saraf, founder of the Rekhta foundation, says, “If there is any language whose very essence tugs affectionately at one’s heartstrings, it is Urdu. The festival provides a platform to different genres of Urdu including literature, music, films, art, theatre, dance, oral storytelling and many others. It has received tremendous response during the last four years and what is rewarding is the love for Urdu taking root and blossoming in the hearts and minds of the younger generation.
