Muscat: Literary Wing of Pakistan Social Club (PSC) has planned its first mega event, the grand Mushairah 2014, on Thursday, June 19 at Al Massa Hall.

Legendary poet Amjad Islam Amjad will lead the galaxy of poets including prominent names like Abbas Tabish and Dr Sughra Sadaf.

After the great success of Basant Festival and Musical Night 2014 and Grand Mehfil-e-Qirat-o-Naat, Pakistan Social Club has now lined up some great poets for the grand Mushairah 2014," said A. H. Raja, vice chairman of PSC.

"The Mushairah will start at 8pm. Entry is free to all lovers of Urdu language in Oman," added Qamar Riaz, secretary of Literary Wing and a prominent poet himself.

Amjad, a writer as well as a columnist, is one of the most respected Urdu poets alive and has authored several books which sell like hot cakes in multiple editions.

Abbas Tabish is a kind of poet Mushairahs always need and his presence is certainly going to add value to the event.

Dr Sughra Sadaf needs no introduction in the literary circles of Pakistan and has carved a niche for herself with her enchanting work and poetry. This talented poet, writer, broadcaster, TV compere and magazine editor is sure to win applause for her beautiful verses.
