The mega Urdu Conference on November 14th-15th, 2019 will amalgamate and review literature, culture, music, poetry, dance, drama, education, and the entertainment industry. Moreover, it will also cover various aspects of Urdu language including its importance in the revival of our forgotten values. Sessions by the literary guests will accentuate the true essence of Urdu language alive and the common proposition to the ‘correct use of Urdu language.

Urdu, one of the most sophisticated languages, defines beauty and grace and is the language of poets, who defines being courteous and noble irrespective of the situations they indulge in. Literature and poetry are depicted in Urdu so gracefully that the world knows of it. It is known to touch the soul the way it imparts hidden meanings in a prose or poetry like no other language can. The Urdu language uses a Persian-Arabic script, though it is written in a particular format. This format is the Nastaliq calligraphy style, which was developed in the 14th century in the country of Iran. It was originally used for the Persian alphabet, though it has since been used for Arabic, and certain South Asian languages. It is also written in many countries as an art form.

Integral University is organizing the III International Urdu Conference in association with Maulana Azad Institute of Humanities, Science & Technology and inviting Urdu lovers from across the globe to come together bringing out the essence of this “zabaan”.
