Just like every year, they are back to celebrate the most beautiful language Urdu in all its form in Delhi again.
So first of all just let me give you a short description of Jashn E Rekhta and what is it all about. It is a three-day event held annually in Delhi and is the world’s biggest Urdu festival. distinguished poets writers artist authors and prominent personalities from different sectors like film TV fraternity, Urdu and Hindi literature make this event a grand celebration.
And it has successfully completed 4 years and this year they are ringing in their 5th edition.
ok, so this was the introduction part now your question would be what to expect from Jashn E Rekhta so here you go, guys.
What to expect at Jashn E Rekhta 2018-
- Food festival
- Book exhibition

So Mushaira is where poets gather to perform their work. Dastangoi is an old Urdu oral storytelling art form and Bait Bazi is a verbal game played by composing verses of Urdu poems. It is somewhat similar to “Antakshari.”
Ghazal Sarayi is celebrating the theme of love and life. Rest I guess you all know about it.
Last year the Jashn was inaugurated by Gulzar Sahab and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and the event was also graced by some prominent names from film music and TV industry like Shabana Azmi Sharmila Tagore Waheeda Rehman Nandita Das and others. It will be really exciting to see who will add more charm to this year’s Jashn.
So I attended the festival last year also and I really really really loved it! probably because I loved the Urdu Bazar and the book exhibition there.
