In the world of constant changes, the Urdu cinema and Urdu Shayari should be protected and preserved at all costs. Within the passage of time, people tend to forget the roots and tend to ignore the very journey they began from. Here we’re talking about the very beginning of the Urdu poetry and cinema and the struggles it faced when it just began and started to expand its roots.
The forgone Urdu poetry
The Urdu poetry has been valued throughout the generations and has been preserved for decades. The work by the famous Urdu poets and authors has been appreciated by the fans of Urdu Shayari through the years.
